Life Improvement

This group will focus on general day-to-day issues that limit or constrain group members' abilities to fully enjoy and to derive satisfaction from their lives. Subjects of discussion will be developed naturally by the interests of the members of the group, but may include addressing daily challenges, overcoming hurdles, dealing with conflict and roadblocks, working with others more effectively, and deepening the personal skills needed to become more satisfied with our lives.
