Dear Learning for Life Center Friends,


AUGUST is a time of change at the Learning for Life Center. Linda VanBibber is changing her name.  LaVetta and Verne are moving and changing their place of residence. School starting always creates dramatic changes in people’s schedules. It is likely that you, personally, and/or your family, are going through varieties of changes too. Many of our offerings at The Learning for Life Center focus on helping people to manage stress and find balance in our world of ever changing circumstances. Change also invites us to accept the growth challenges we encounter in times of transition and transformation!   We invite you to join us as we co-create creative, compassionate realities…together!
