Quo Vadis - “Where are you going?"

Price: $40.00

Date: August 24, 2017

Thursday, August 24
9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Cost: $40

Presented by David Eich

To help answer this question, this program is based on the foundational belief that the encounters one has, coupled with the choices you make, will define the legacy you leave. Participants will reflect on those experiences that made a significant impact on their beliefs, values, and behaviors; recognize the consequences of ethical conflicts we all face in our personal and professional lives; and clarify a legacy roadmap built by the “5 most important things in life.”

Inspiring stories from an executive on what defines a bad day, a dad on facing  adversity, a wife and mother on the meaning of a perfect life, and a volunteer on the gift of forgiveness represent some examples in finding answers to the Quo Vadis question.

David Eich is a seasoned health care executive with extensive experience in marketing and community engagement. As a keynote speaker, retreat leader, and author of five books, David will tell you his greatest blessing is his family.

  • Share the challenges of this time with other parents
  • Take time for prayer to ground yourself in faith

Ignatian spirituality offers insights and lessons on how to support parents whose children are making the transition from late adolescence into early adulthood. Ignatian themes can inform our parenting, along with a mindfulness approach, and offer a way to support our sons and daughters while we as parents maintain our peace of mind and love even more deeply and thoughtfully.

It will be a source of encouragement and hope as you receive strength for the journey of loving our young adults back to God. Come and see!
