Author Talk with Sandi Gold
JAN 13, 2024/1:00 PM–03:00 PM
Please join author Sandi Gold for a talk on her book titled “I Chose Love: How to Thrive After a Life-threatening Illness Using Love to Guide You”. She will be answering questions, followed by a workshop led by Christopher Carbone titled “Mandalas from the Heart: an Expressive Arts Approach.” A mandala can serve as a “creative container” for holding one’s vision, one’s expression, and one’s connection to wholeness. In this workshop, people will be creating their own mandalas from their hearts to make space for additional love in the midst of this busy holiday season.
