Jane Collins, Marty Moss-Coane in upcoming Center for Enrichment programs

Next Tuesday, March 16, the Chestnut Hill Center for Enrichment invites the community to “lunch and learn” at the Center on the Hill, 8855 Germantown Ave. Free blood pressure screenings with Lynn Trimborn, RN, of the Unitarian Universalist House Outreach Program, begin at 12:15. The program will begin at 1 p.m. Lunch is $3 a person and will be served at 12:30 p.m.

Jan Collins, M.Ed., will ask the very important question, “Are You Encouraging or Discouraging Yourself?”  One indicator may be the answer to a second question: “When you look in a mirror, what do you say to yourself?”  From a perspective of Creating Your Positive Life, the group will explore:

• How negative outlooks and patterns can drain our energy, affecting health, relationships, productivity and self-esteem.

• How the way we treat ourselves affects how we feel.

• Ways we can create a more positive and uplifting daily experience for ourselves.

One concrete goal of this meeting is that each participant learns to identify a frequent area of self-stress and changes it to self-support.

Ms. Collins, who has recently moved to Wyndmoor, provides educational presentations for organizations focused on Creating Your Positive Life: putting our energy in a positive direction brings positive experiences into our life.

While living in New Jersey she presented various Creating Your Positive EnvironmentSM topics and Healing Effects of Sound and Music at Raritan Valley Community College Wellness Fair, radio talk shows, local libraries, civic groups, various support groups, fitness centers, assisted living centers and Anderson House, a facility for recovery from substance addiction.

Recently she completed a Master of Spiritual Science program, and is currently enrolled in the doctoral program.  Ms. Collins holds a Master of Education in Counselor Education, a B.A. in sociology, a certificate as Stanford University Leader for the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, and another certificate in Spirituality, Health and Healing.

Radio Times at Center
