This is a free program we put on every year for the community. If you have a special talent, and would like to share in the spirit that is America, please call Michelle at 264-4152.

Paths of the Heart

A new discussion group sponsored by the Ross Aragón Community Center, “Paths of the Heart,” facilitated by Paul Roberts 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 from deep, inward feelings outside a psychotherapeutic context.

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

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