‘Heart to Heart’ at the Ross Aragon Community Center

The Ross Aragon Community Center will sponsora new discussion group, “Heart to Heart,” co-facilitated by Paul Roberts and Peter Marritt, with the goal of developing a greater sense of understanding about oneself and empathy towards others.

This is a chance to share and listen from the heart, to communicate deep, inward feelings-outside a therapeutic context.

Paul Roberts is a musician and arts-in-education specialist. Early in his career, Paul worked as a music therapist and group therapist. Paul was a protegé of Brandeis sociology professor Morrie Schwartz, the subject of the best-selling book “Tuesday’s With Morrie.”

Peter Marritt worked as an IBM systems engineer, computer consultant and graphic artist. He is a wilderness traveler, writer and award-winning editor. Peter has participated in personal growth groups for over 20 years.

If you are interested in the discussion group, call 731-3117 for more information.
