F.L.R.P. Presents: CONSCIOUS CONNECTION For the Front-Line
CONNECTING ALL OF THE FRONT-LINE
Conscious Connection is an evening to bring together those that work the front line, to talk, listen, share, and connect. As members working the front-line and supporters of these members, we have a unique thread that links us all together and there is a powerful strength that happens when we come together and build relationships with one another.
About this Event
~ Are you a member of the front-line? Are you a family member or close friend of someone on the front-line? Are you looking to connect with others?
~ Looking to share your story and feel heard and supported?
~ Feeling alone and like nobody understands what you are going through?
THEN THIS EVENING IS FOR YOU!

"Connection is why we are here. We are hardwired to connect with others, its what gives purpose and meaning to our lives and without it there is suffering."
