YMCA Healthy Aging Community Café

The YMCA Healthy Aging Community Cafés bring together those who are 55+ to engage in meaningful learning and sharing around topics relevant to individuals moving toward and through their golden years. The goal is to build spirit, mind, and body health such that all may thrive with greater purpose, connection, and well-being.

What is a Healthy Aging Community Café?
There will be a brief (15-20 min) topical introduction with ideas to frame the discussion and consider things in new ways. This will be followed by small group facilitated discussions where you will have the opportunity to share experiences and perspectives or simply listen to your peers as you feel comfortable. Following the small group discussions, we will come back together for an empowering full group wrap-up with relevant resource sharing and a look ahead to the next café.

All Community Cafés are FREE and hosted on Zoom. If you are new to Zoom and would like some assistance getting started, please note that on your registration form.

Time Management for Mortals

Reconfigure your to-do list around what really matters with a calmer, more meaningful approach to organizing time. The drive to get more done can be an excuse to avoid figuring out what we actually want to accomplish. Rethink your worship of efficiency, reject the cult of busyness, and plan your life around what matters.
