Invited guests to lead and navigate "On Tap" include Rev. Ken Kaucheck, Rabbi Dorit Edut, Sandy Bell, Minister Jim Lee, Sister (Dr.) Mary Angelica, Mohamad Abbass, David Kasbow, Bishop Tom Gumbleton, Jo Ann Loria, Rabbi Mordehai Waldman, Gail Katz of WISDOM,  Padma Kuppa, John Suggs, and more.

Engage, eat, be entertained with other young adults, and ask facilitators questions.

Express yourself.

After all, you're amazing! 

You are!

A benefit for people and places who help people feel 'at home' with others, self, and more, for the season.

Be there.

Don't be left out in the cold.

At home with self, others, the Maker, and more, for a spiritually enriching season of sharing.

Before this series, also, join others and me in Big Jack's, Monday, November 26 from 7 - 8:15 to hear interfaith leaders share ways of coping with real or imagined stress. 

Yoga, Mass, Centering, Ditching the TV, Journal writing, music, being,  rosary, stretching, breathing deeply, 3-step process of union with God (uncovering, discovering, recovering of John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila, support system, divine mercy mantra, exercise, and walking meditation, among other way of staying stress free and enjoying the spritual season and holidays.

Rabbis, Christian pastors, Imams, Hindu, Ba'hai, and Buddhists, among others,  demonstrate a particular practice, like the ancient, sung, hymnody and official prayer, Liturgy of the Hours, all Catholic faithful, are challenged to pray daily.

Hear common ways of believers connect with the Creator and creation across the globe. This is part of the fourth of wellness series, Good Grief: Grieve, But Not Like Those Without Hope: 10 Stages. I navigate the group through stages of their own procession through the dark tunnel into the light using the metaphor of driving and aiming toward the light of the Detroit/Windsor Tunnel.

Join me!  After all, swallowed grief is depression.

By the way, is stress, and, its drama in our lives at times told of in the DSM-6 and noted in the diagnostic statistical manual a new disease? A new diagnosis every decade or so seems to be established by the social scientists of psychiatrists and psychologists.

Religiosity was recently named. Spiritual solutions to clinical problems is a path I pursue in the pastoral counseling I do in my so-called, special assignment.

Google Landmark Education for awesome self-awareness for widening opportunities in one's trek through life's joys and obstacles. 

Graduates of this growth and development process are meeting Monday, December 10 for lunch from 11:30 am - 1 pm at Pronto's in Royal Oak, MI., and, to imagine and timeline concrete ways of lifting up Detroit together with its youth and families.
