This weeks event covers Covid-19, HIV: Who Are YOU Choosing To Be?  presented by The Life Group LA (www.thelifegroupla.org/).  The events guest speaker is Mark Edgar Stephens, Personal and Professional Development Coach and Consultant (www.markedgarstephens.com/).

This week’s topic: Who are you Choosing to be?  – A workshop for finding life changing answers.  By learning how to realign with the thoughts feelings and actions that lead to an optimal state of being, life’s most powerful, purpose filled answers can be found within each of us. Sometimes all we need is to be asked a few life-changing questions in order to reveal the wisdom that we already possess.

Join The Life Group LA clinical consultant and therapist John Sovec for a wide-ranging conversation on the best tools to manage your emotional and mental state during the Covid 19 outbreak. We will explore the bodies response to ongoing stress and anxiety, some practical tools you can implement to manage each day, find balance during this stressful time, and take a moment to breathe together to connect on a higher level.

The Life Group LA is a powerful coalition of people focused on the spiritual, emotional and physical well-being of people living with HIV and those who support them through education, empowerment and emotional support. Our work is to assist people so that they may make informed choices and decisions regarding their healthcare and personal well-being.

Founded in 2005 Life Group LA provides free of charge, much needed information and emotional support through medical forums, emotional support groups and the POZ Life Weekend Seminar. All services are offered in a non-judgmental and safe environment with compassion and understanding. 

Safety, respect and confidentiality are the cornerstones of our philosophy. We accomplish this by providing trained support group facilitators for our emotional support groups and our POZ Life Weekend Seminar. These facilitators have been trained in the art of active listening and conduct themselves with empathy and compassion. 

In a time when the HIV epidemic has surpassed its 30th year and new HIV infections continue to occur on a daily basis, now more than ever we must continue the struggle against HIV/AIDS.
