It's no fun backing through life, tripping over the same bad habits and arriving at places by accident. It is much more satisfying to maintain a focus on long-term intentions and getting places by design. We are each capable of robust, forward-thinking living to develop a fine life. These free workshops presented by Dr. Jan Iversen provide an insight into what adjustments can be made to achieve this goal.

Tuesday Evenings from 5:30-6:30 p.m.

Carnegie Room, McMinnville Public Library

McMinnville, Oregon
