Saturday, March 30
Boyle Conference Room
Registration fee: $30
(Registration closes Thursday, March 28)
Relationships take work, and successful relationships take work and a deep understanding of self. Communication, how we handle conflict, and expectations for relationships can be different from person to person.
Whether you are in a relationship, just really want to be, or can’t figure out why your relationships fail, exploring your personal attitudes to relationships can help you have more meaningful partnerships.
During this interactive workshop, you will gain insight into how personal stress, communication styles, and conflict affect our relationships, and how our families of origin influence our expectations.
You will learn about common communication pitfalls and gain skills in assertive communication, active listening, and conflict resolution. Additionally, you will gain clarity on what is a healthy or unhealthy relationship.
This workshop, led by Erica Pinney and Susan Haarman, is open to anyone—committed or single—who is looking to deepen their self-understanding in relationships.
Erica Pinney is a counseling intern at the Replogle Center for Counseling and Well-Being and completing her masters in community counseling at Loyola University Chicago. Over the last decade Erica has worked in the field of domestic violence and is committed to helping adults understand their relationship to themselves and to those they love.
Susan Haarman is a counseling intern at the Replogle Center for Counseling and Well-Being and is completing her masters in community counseling at Loyola University Chicago. Over the last decade Susan has worked in campus ministry and loves helping others find out how to have healthier, happier relationships.

Tuesdays at Replogle: Meditation
Tuesdays Evening Meditation
Boyle Conference Room
Donation of $10 requested
This group meditation is open to all, whether you are new to meditation or an experienced practitioner.
To enhance our meditation experience, leaders provide a theme for each month’s discussion time. After sitting in meditative silence, our conversation focuses on that theme, related to the month and season. Our theme for March is “How to Bring Mindfulness into Everyday Life.”
You are welcome to come whenever you can. We gather on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:15 p.m. (which includes 25 minutes of silent meditation, followed by discussion centered on the monthly theme).
You do not need to commit to attend every Tuesday; you are welcome to come whichever weeks you choose.
We encourage you to reserve your space, by clicking on the dates for the evenings you plan to join us.
We also appreciate a $10 donation per session or whatever you can afford to support the work of the Center.
