An Afternoon with Benita Zahn – “Finding More Joy”

Tuesday, April 26 2 p.m. 

Refreshments. Please RSVP $5. Sponsored by The Albany Guardian Society. Who doesn’t want more joy in their life? But too often we let the little things blow up, overtaking what should be delight. Or we don’t value what we have. Or we worry about “what if”. We don’t have to look outside to find what make us happy, rather, reorient how we see what’s in front of us. So come ready to laugh!
