SELF-CARE IN ANXIOUS AND DISCOURAGING TIMES

WE REGRET NEEDING TO CANCEL THE FORUM PLANNED FOR OCTOBER 12TH, DUE TO POWER OUTAGES IN BERKELEY AND THE CLOSURE OF UC BERKELEY AND OTHER NEARBY UNIVERSITIES.

Our speaker and panelists have graciously offered to postpone the forum until Saturday, November 23, and we will be in touch with more information about that.

If you have registered and paid for tomorrow’s event, please let us know if you would like a refund or would like it applied to the rescheduled forum. (510 841/9386 or info@newcollegeberkeley.org)

Offering this program on self-care in anxious and discouraging times seems more important than ever as we face the possibility of fire, and I pray you are safe and well-cared for this weekend.

This forum will offer sources of hope in a time when social tensions run high and work/school pressures can be crushing. Join us for a keynote address by Lily Stearns, PhD, MA, MDiv and a speaker panel discussion on what "self-care" entails at the intersection of the university and the church.
