Staying Hopeful and Resilient in Challenging Times

This program will be presented by Fr. Norm Douglas and Larry Vuillemin, co-founders of Heart to Heart Communications based in Akron, OH.

Since 1990, over 30,000 persons have attended their programs in corporate and community settings, with a focus on the connection between the individual's inner and interpersonal development and the vitality and success of every business.


This session will discover and draw upon the inner resources and outer practices which facilitate lifelong renewal of the human spirit. It will address the sources of negativity and imbalance in daily life and work, and present ways to move yourself and your organization toward a more positive, solutions -oriented, and resilient approach.


Given the significance of 9/11, Norm will also share insights from his participation in commemorative events at the national memorial for Flight 93 in Shanksville, PA.

The cost to attend this event is included in your annual membership - aka, Free for Members!  And $20 for non-members.
