Seminar – East Greenbush Library

I offered the 13th seminar at East Greenbush Community Library (1) on April 8, 2015 from 7 to 8.30 pm. Attended by 13 adults (10 female and 3 male) and 1 teenager. A folder containing my key handouts  and sample testimonials was given to each participant (2), (3). It was nice to see a good number showing up within 6 months of my last seminar in Oct 2014. Apparently many people are looking for such self help techniques for stress management. One woman who attended my seminar at the Cstleton Library came to this seminar again along with her teenage daughter and mom.
