Greenwood Senior Center workshops on retirement and ‘soul collage’ this Wednesday

May 23rd, 2016 by Doree

The Greenwood Senior Center, 525 N. 85th St., has two workshops this Wednesday.

Puget Sound Advocates for Retirement Action presents an interactive workshop, “Making Retirement Security Real for Everyone,” from 1-3 p.m. Attendees will talk about the common need for greater retirement security, and concrete steps to make it happen.

Soul Collage Workshop with Ruthie Neilson and Geri Frick is from 1-4 p.m. “Access your own inherent wisdom and guidance. You will tap into your intuitive side, then create a mixed-media collage that reveals your inner wisdom. You will have the opportunity to also journal about your creation. Collage is a powerful medium for self-expression that is accessible to all of us – no artistic experience needed.”

Both workshops are free. RSVP for either workshop at 206-297-0875.
