Finding Inner Calm in a Turbulent Time
The Catherine Adams Memorial Program

Monday, December 17th, 2018

Each year New Directions uses this occasion to remember and honor Catherine Adams, one of the most spiritual members of New Directions until her death in 2004.
We are living in turbulent times. Each day our news brings political turmoil, war, and wildfires, and it seems the news cycle never ends. All of this turbulence happens in the midst of our own lives, which often can be quite stressful, especially during the holiday season. Family, friends, and work all make demands that can feel overwhelming to us. James M. Walsh, PhD., LPCMD will address these issues directly and consider how to navigate our times with skill, preserving our inner peace and finding calmness in the midst of turbulence. Mindfulness will be emphasized and practiced at our annual Catherine Adams Memorial Program. Dr. Walsh is a Pastoral Counselor, faculty member of Wilmington University, and friend of Catherine Adams.
Immediately following the presentation, New Directions will celebrate its 26th annual holiday party. Participants are invited to bring a donation of cookies or other holiday ?goodie?.

Unless otherwise noted, support meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of each month and educational meetings are held on the third Monday. All meetings are open to the public. However, support meetings are only open to persons 18 years of age and older who have depression or bipolar disorder, and their adult family and friends. The New Directions Charter and tax status legally restricts us to adult participants. All meetings are free; to defray expenses, donations are requested but not required.
