Guest Speaker Rob Riches
Sunday, Sept. 6, 10:30 a.m.
A look at love as we know it, how we get stuck in “no-person’s” land, and how we might feel loved and more loving. Rob Riches, retired teacher and engineer, is a practicing life coach with a “specialism” in emotional intelligence. As well as coaching for critical life events, he focuses on the several courses he offers in emotional development based on a fundamental duality of human nature which manifests when we are in a state of emotional distress. Using a unique coaching technique, he helps participants find their own answers in areas of Self, relationships and family. His position is that emotional maturity is essential to the full spiritual development of exalted consciousness.
