Author and spiritual teacher Mary Hayes Grieco will lead an interactive workshop on “Living with Purpose” from 2-6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, in The Church of St. Francis, 3201 Pleasant Ave. S., Minneapolis.
The workshop is sponsored by the Minneapolis Theosophical Society as part of its Ancient Wisdom / Ancient Mysteries series of workshops and lectures.
Harpist Bettie Seitzer will provide special live music.
The interactive workshop will focus on finding your life purpose, loving yourself, serving others, and healing our world.
“The challenge of our times,” Grieco said, “calls for us to live our hope for ourselves and our world and to powerfully step up to the tasks that are uniquely ours to do. No one can sit on the sidelines.”

She described her October 8 workshop as a special day with others who are committed to bringing love and light to our planet and a time to find encouragement and new focus about our special life purpose.
“Be a light — a steady light,” she advised. “Live with faith in our human community.”
