Gratitude Workshop

Bringing an Attitude of Gratitude to the Ridge

Rosie Potestio will lead the Gratitude Workshop at Paradise Lutheran ChurchSix months ago, OLLI member Dennis Ivey, a Magalia resident who fled the Ridge last November, approached OLLI with an idea for bringing more lifelong learning opportunities to the impacted communities in Paradise and surrounding areas. The result is a four-part lecture series which began Thursday, October 17. To lead the series, Dennis recommended OLLI Peer Leader Rosie Potestio, who has conducted several classes on gratitude and healing over the years. Rosie embraced the invitation and led a two-hour workshop about the practice of gratitude and how it affects our lives. Stay tuned for information on the second lecture in the series.
