Time & Location

Feb 10, 2023, 7:00 PM

Oak Park, 13 Harrison St, Oak Park, IL 60304, USA


For many: Zero debt + Affordable health care + A living wage + A stable, healthy partner (and family) + Home ownership + Vacation days = Unimaginable success.  As impressive as these accomplishments may seem, even when we manage to achieve them, they can still leave us feeling frustrated, anxious, or simply dissatisfied.

How can we redefine success in a way that brings confidence, authentic happiness, and a rewarding sense of achievement? Join us for an inspiring and thought-provoking evening of meditation, contemplation, and community. No previous experience is necessary; everyone is welcome.

Following the talk, everyone is invited to join in a dinner out at a local restaurant (details to be decided on the night; cost of dinner not included).
