Living Courageously with Vanessa Zoltan
Join Vanessa Zoltan for four weeks of reflection on how to approach your daily life with more bravery in 2024. Each week, we will consider courage through a particular theme: vulnerability, creativity, activism, and self-love. We will begin each class by reading a short text on that week’s topic and then do some self-reflection through a writing prompt. We will then go into small groups to discuss our thoughts.
