Finding Contentment Workshop

New Year, New Outlook!

What is your 2020 vision? If you’re starting your journey into the new year with feelings of unease, anxiety, or disillusionment, now is the perfect time to unload some of that unnecessary emotional baggage. 
On Saturday, January 25, inspiring speaker, author, and life coach Ann C. Sullivan will lead a workshop titled “Finding Contentment in a Discontented World” from 9:00 - 11:15 a.m. at St. Joseph Center. Ann is a sought-after presenter who is acclaimed for her ability to bring out spiritual truths while weaving a story that captures the heart. She’ll share ways to reduce anxiety and boost your satisfaction with real-life wisdom from her own spiritual journey.

Ann struggled with panic attacks for over a decade, so she is able to share honestly—with pastoral care and humor—how we too may regain wholeness in our personal and professional lives. Ann is the author of the books Unsatisfied: Finding Contentment in Our Discontented World and Permission to Doubt and has designed this workshop to help us realize the best version of ourselves!

This inspiring morning of reflection, renewal, and rejuvenation is just $15, so reserve your place today by calling Donna at 414-385-5272 or email
