Aging has Come of Age
Women discussing and writing about the joys and challenges of aging is the focus of this group. Those who have participated say the non-judgmental group is a catalyst to inspire and sort out your truth from everyone else’s. Humor is a large part of the equation as well as understanding of and discovery of a new self. Contact Perie for more information.
