The Power of Presence Book Circle Registration
Invest your time and talents to strengthen our community by leading a Book Circle.

Social psychologist, Gregory Walton reports, “as humans, we need to belong. To one another, to our friends and families, to our culture and country, to our world. Belonging is primal, fundamental to our sense of happiness and well-being. Belonging is a psychological lever that has broad consequences. Our interests, motivation, health and happiness are inextricably tied to the feeling that we belong to a greater community that may share common interests and aspirations".
