September East Bay Parlay House: Finding Hope in Difficult Times
September 26 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Parlay House East Bay is back for a second event! In these days of social rancor and seemingly challenging ethical times, it can be hard to feel hopeful. Whether because of ‘macro’ or personal challenges, does it seem hard to “keep the faith” and see the positive side of your world? We’ve invited Maggie Harmon, whose unconventional career path has led her to a place of “seeking and sharing knowledge to empower life”. Maggie will talk to us about listening to your spirit to guide you along life’s path through her own experience. She brings a unique perspective on how to find hope in challenging times.
Maggie Harmon currently serves as Ministry Relations Officer for the Southwest Region of the Presbyterian Foundation. In this role she works with congregations and individuals to create, nurture, and sustain the culture and habit of generosity, offers seminars and workshops across a variety of topics, develops gifts, fundraising plans, management processes, and provides coaching for organizational sustainability. In addition to this work Maggie serves as an interfaith chaplain, working to create space for spiritual connectedness across culture, background, and life circumstances. Maggie’s experience includes 20 years of legal practice, management consulting, and leadership coaching. She is a certified Six Sigma Black Belt and has extensive training in social science based organizational development. Maggie brings all this experience to her work through holistic organizational planning.
