4-4:20 pm Denyne Sanville “Caution:  Rough Road Ahead… Seek Alternative Routes”

Have you ever felt like you were not enough? No matter what you did you were never part of the “in” crowd, never loved enough, and never were accepted for who you really were?   Come, listen to the motivating real life story of a woman who tried and failed over a lifetime of experiences, then finally learned to march to the beat of her own drum.  Denyne Sanville, raised in a strict Catholic family learned to conform as a youngster.  A rebel, tomboy and outcast at an early age, she attended the school of hard knocks.

The Secret to a Happy Life”Suffering and happiness in the same sentence?  One of many paradoxes encountered on the path of wisdom and true happiness.  Together, we will explore the ruthless trap inherent in the belief that fulfilling desires is the key to true happiness... we just might laugh along the way.  Rick Adair claims his religion is, “Curiosity and Kindness.”  I, for one, find that a bit strange.  I say we keep a close eye on him and find out what he’s up to. 

** Subject to change without notice … but we will try our very best not to mess with it!  :~)
