Turning Fear Into Power Workshops with Linda Sartor
Sundays, Nov. 20, 2016 and March 5, 2017, 1-4:00 PM at the Peace and Justice Center, 467 Sebastopol Avenue, in Santa Rosa.

Linda Sartor, author of Turning Fear Into Power: One Woman’s Journey Confronting the War on Terror, works with participants to get in touch with your hearts’ callings (big or small; personal, global, or anything in between), explore the fears that emerge, and get into a different relationship with those fears–embracing rather than denying them and learning from them to strengthen your power.  Cost is a minimum $10 donation to the Peace and Justice Center as a registration fee.

Leave a message on the Contact Me page of this site if you wish to be contacted for the next workshop.  Maximum 12 participants.
