Joseph Goldstein will lead a guided meditation and group discussion on October 30 at Smith College's Helen Hills Hills Chapel. The theme of the evening is living life with an open and wise heart. The event will take place from 7:30-9:00 p.m. The Helen Hills Hills Chapel is located on Elm Street in Northampton near the new Smith Campus Center. A donation of $7-$20 is suggested, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. All members of the public are welcome.
