How to Make a Graceful Living
Saturday & Sunday
from 10am - 6pm each day
Would you like to earn a living in a way that more truly expresses who you are? Do you want to be more excited by your work and less a captive of it? Have you outgrown your job? Is making a contribution an important part of the work you want to do? Is there something you feel you could excel at if you could only find a way to be paid for this talent? Do you dream about earning a living with grace, ease, satisfaction and more autonomy?
If you're looking for creative work that really satisfies you, join us for How to Make a Graceful Living. You'll learn techniques that, coupled with your commitment and creativity, will help you create new job opportunities. The course is for people who want more joy from the way they earn money.
The course is designed to
- help find work that is more natural for you
- show how to find work that truly expresses who you are
- encourage you to consolidate all your talents and use them
- discover how work can support your expansion and growth
In the course you uncover
- the best use of your unique bundle of skills

It wasn't long ago that people had one job and a career with one company. Today we manage our jobs and careers in a rapidly shifting culture. Work that satisfied you yesterday may actually be a stepping stone in your career. Opportunities to discover fulfilling and nurturing work for ourselves and others are available and can be created.
Maureen went through this process herself 30 years ago. Her personal research for this course led her to leave the world of advertising, marketing, education and the arts and resulted in her Life Works partnership. She became a business therapist, consultant, entrepreneur, investor, landlord, marketer and teacher. She has created numerous partnerships, events and conferences, the publishing arm of Life Works and is now studying the internet to expand Life Works and her client’s mastery of this new method of communication. When not in New York, she works from homes in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Palm Springs, California, and the beach on Long Island's North Fork.

There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening
That is translated through you into action,
And because there is only one of you in all time,
This expression is unique.
If you block it,
It will never exist through any other medium
And will be lost.
The world will not have it.
It is not your business to determine how good it is;
Nor how valuable it is;
Nor how it compares with other expressions.
It is your business to keep it yours, clearly and directly,
To keep the channel open.
You do not have to believe in yourself or your work.
You have to keep open and aware and directly
To the urges that motivate you.
Keep the channel open.
No artist is pleased.
There is no satisfaction whatever at any time.
There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction;
A blessed unrest that keeps us marching
And makes us more alive than the others.
~Martha Graham and Agnes Demille
What we really want to do is what we are really meant to do.
When we do what we are meant to do,
money comes to us,
doors open for us,
we feel useful,
and the work we do feels like play to us.
