A new 14 week class of Making the Most of I will begin in Saxtons River on Wednesday, Feb. 17 from 5-8:30 p.m.
This course is offered free of charge to women who are looking for support and information on a variety of subjects that relate to their lives. The course is free of charge and there is childcare on site available. Women are encouraged to attend class every week.
Making the Most of I was founded in 1998 by therapist/facilitator Nancy Clingan, who holds her masters degree in Expressive Therapy.
Each week, women learn a new form of stress reduction and meditation, often share some creative time, such as making collages or writing, and then have confidential sharing.
A professional in her field then shares information and answers questions on a variety of subjects such as mental health, parenting, education, spirituality and health, sexuality, relationships, nutrition and a variety of paths to reduce stress and improve communication. The course also teaches conflict resolution and acts as a resource for any services the participants may need.
Making the Most of I is a non-profit agency and is supported by grants from the Turrell Fund, The Windham Foundation, The Thompson Trust, The Fippinger Foundation and others. Donations made by private individuals and companies in the community are also essential to the operation of MMI.
MMI produces fundraising concerts, dances and puppet shows several times a year.
This small organization has been serving women in the community and prison programs for 12 years and had over 1,200 women graduate from the program.
To register or for information about the new program, which will be held at Christ's Church, 24 Main Street, Saxtons River, please call Nancy Clingan at 869-2456 and see www.makingthemostofi.com.
