Life of Leisure

Come together and explore what it means to really have the life you want, a life of meaningful work and the true ability to be at rest. Learn how to avoid the feeling of emptiness we can get from the entertainment culture and how to have a real immersion into the recreation that comes with knowing who we are and how we are meant to live.
