Last Meeting: August 4, 2021(via Zoom)

Subject: Sharing Life’s Turning Points

Presenter: Dan Dana

Description: This session consisted of attendees’ sharing responses to this stem question: “Other than your parents and family of origin, what person/event/experience has been the most formative influence on your life?”

Those who contributed gave a short (5-minutes) answer, which in some cases stimulated Q&A and discussion. We had thirty responses from our erudite audience.

Dan Dana lead off, and with Barry's assistance facilitated the session.
