The need for connection is stronger than ever

During this unprecedented time we are all challenged to maintain our connections with others. We are isolated in our homes, conducting most of our interactions online–all at a time when we’re experiencing great uncertainty and feeling fear.

Are you tiring of texting and do you long to connect via voice? Stumbling on what to say after “How are you?” during your weekly family zoom call? Do you wish to nourish better connections with team members at work, neighbors and the community at large or simply those closest to you like a spouse or child?

Participate in a special class with Debra Fine

This will be a fun, lively class presented on Zoom. Cultivating Connections: Making the Most of Conversations During These Changing times. Monday May 11, 6:30-8:00. Anyone who has taken Debra’s “Master the Fine Art of Small Talk” over the years at CFU knows what a treasure Debra is and what a terrific class she offers.
