Thursdays, 7-9 pm
Paulette gave valuable information and resources for the group to use. The greatest impact on me was when she asked us all to think of an action that was meaningful to us. I had been caring for my Mom who had passed away a few months before. My actions were "brushing hair" and "serving meals." All the participants in the class demonstrated their "action" and then Paulette put them together with a song and we all performed it in the time frame of the class. It was very meaningful.
