All of us at VOICES were terribly saddened to hear the news of the senseless, mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado last night. Latest reports indicate that 71 individuals were injured, and 12 tragically died. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families, as well as those who were injured and the community at large.

We are putting the finishing touches on tomorrow night's gala and are excited that so many family members will be joining us this year! One of the highlights of the evening is always the silent auction. You never know what Stephanie and her team will "discover" to tempt the gala participants.

In this workshop we will learn a basic style of Buddhist meditation (no beliefs required!), consider how meditation can bring new perspective, and contemplate ways to bring greater wisdom, skill, and kindness into our lives.
