The Business and Emotions of Downsizing: Ideas for Making the Moving Process Less Stressful

Sunday, May 17 from 12 – 2:00 p.m.

Is it time to start the process of downsizing, but you don’t know where to begin? Does it overwhelm you to even think about it? Are all the cherished memories in your long-term home holding you back, even though you know moving is the next step? If so, please join us for a special seminar as Incarnation members Dan and Kara Galvin help you form a plan to make this process smoother and easier to face. Dan is an experienced local realtor who will share professional insights and information about preparing to sell your home, and Kara is a trained counselor who will focus on the emotional and self-reflective side of this major life transition. Pastor Jeanne Hartfield will provide spiritual practices to use on the journey.

This seminar is geared toward couples/individuals who are thinking about downsizing after living in their home for many years, as well as their primary supporters (grown children, for example); but anyone who would like to attend is welcome! Feel free to share this opportunity with family and friends who might benefit. Lunch will be provided! Space is limited to 40 people.

The available spaces are now full. To be placed on the waiting list, please email Pastor Jeanne Hartfield.

Register for the spring event scheduled for Sunday, May 17 from Noon to 2:00 p.m.
