November 28th Tara Cohen
Happiness and Mindfulness

“Mindfulness helps me:
- notice what I am feeling in my body, and allows me to pause and have more choice of responses;
- get out of the stories I am creating in my head and realize that not everything I think is reality;
- understand impermanence; nothing stays the same because change is constant; and
- slow things down, be in the present, and feel grateful for this very moment (whatever it is).”

Tara Cohen is a social worker and mindfulness instructor. She is deeply committed to supporting individuals in achieving their optimal quality of life, throughout their life journey. Her hope is to respond to the needs and suffering of individuals and families, as they walk their unique and collective paths through life.


December 12th (2nd Wednesday)
Christmas Party

Garth Hampson and Friends will provide (most of) the Entertainment.

The rest is up to the massed voices of the Probus Alta Vista Chorus (YOU!)

The club will provide the Christmas Goodies, so come, relax and enjoy!



Guests and Visitors from other Clubs are welcome.


We are a 'Combined' Club. We meet on the 4th Wednesday of the month (except December - 2nd Wednesday). Meetings begin at 10:00 with a few minutes of announcements and then a speaker. Members start to arrive about 9:30 for coffee, cookies and chat (tea, Tim-bits and talk).

Meetings are at:

Gloucester Presbyterian Church
91 Pike Street

Pike Street runs north from Hunt Club just west of Conroy. The church is at the corner of Lorry Greenberg and Pike. Parking lot entrances are off Pike.

 PROBUS' Vital Purpose …

... to stimulate thought, interest and participation in activities at a time in life when it is easy to become complacent and self-centred.
