Struggles and Successes of Raising an Adopted Son

Thu, 02/16/2017 - 10:14am -- jrusnak

The 2017 Spring Life of the Mind Salon Series begins on WednesdayApril 5 when Kim Fuller shares her inspirational and enriching story, the basis of her new book, Finding: The Story of a Young Boy Who Became His Adoptive Mother’s Greatest Spiritual Teacher. This novel/memoir is a journey through the ups and downs of the relationship between a mother who is practicing Buddhism and mindfulness while guiding her mentally ill son who is battling attachment disorder. Together they learn to understand their minds, one through spiritual practice and one through neuro feedback. 

Kim Fuller has been a freelance photographer for over 25 years and practices mindfully observing her world and the people in it every day.  She teaches a class called the Mindful Photographer because she finds her gratitude increases as she carefully takes in her views and she wants to share that process with others.  After practicing Buddhism and meditation for many years now Kim leads workshops that share what she has learned about handling the emotional stresses involved with raising a child with a mental illness, specifically Attachment Disorder, and with dealing with difficult people in general.

A wine and cheese reception is held at 5:30 pm, followed by the salon at 6:00 pm. Free for members; $10 for non-members. Seating is limited; call 401-847-0295, ext. 112 for reservations or register online below.
