 PERSONAL VILLAGE PROJECT & THE LAKERIDGE INSTITUTE LLC PRESENT Personal Village Workshop With Marv Thomas, LICSW May 9, 2015 9:30 AM – 4 PM Registration at 9:30 AM; Workshop b egins promptly at 10 AM. Tickets $120.00: event/1438023 People are your most important asset, and with the fast pace of modern life, relationships often take back stage. The result is a longing for meaningful relationships and a sense of community. As children and young adults, others created community for us, but we often did not learn the skills necessary to do that for ourselves. Many of us do not take the time, nor know where to turn to learn how to bring people into our lives who will make our lives sparkle. This workshop will do that for you!
In this entertaining and informative workshop, you will learn to: • Turn a stranger into an acquaintance and then into a friend.

Craft a map of the type of community that you would like to have. Your personal village is one of the most important assets you will ever have in your life. Why is it so important? The answer is simple. Every single thing you need to live your life to its fullest potential—elders to raise you, education, career opportunities, the richness of your own adult family, spiritual evolution, health care, financial resources, reaching your highest potential, and support as you age and become infirm— —involves people. They populate your personal village. If your village is sparse, your life will probably be empty and lacking. If, on the other hand, you succeed in filling your village with a host of supportive people, your life will be full and rich. There is a one-­‐to-­‐one correlation between the strength of your personal village and the success of your life.
