Life Reimagined Checkup: Discover Your "What's Next"
6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Roosevelt High School
4029 28th Ave. South
Minneapolis, MN 55406

We all know that having purpose leads to effectiveness at work, better health, happiness and even prolonged life. However, in reality, your talents, passions and values may not always be in alignment - whether in work, relationships or with your health. In this workshop, you will reflect on past experiences, explore future possibilities and connect with peers to find shared aspirations for "what's next." You will understand the Life Reimagined Approach which is a series of practices that help you identify priorities, take the first step, get past barriers and achieve goals, all with greater purpose. Minneapolis Community Education is offering this class in partnership with AARP Minnesota.  Register online or call 612-668-4828. Cost: $15.
