Begin a New Life:
Four Universal Steps of Life Change and Spiritual Transformation

Begin a New Life is an ongoig group which provides people with tools and support for making key changes in their lives. It is based on a landmark, faith-based process of change that bridges across all faiths and cultures. You don't need to be knowledgeable or experienced in the process in order to show up, learn about it, practice it in your life, and benefit from it immediately. The group meets on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. Exceptions are the month of July each year (the group takes a summer break) and during spiritual growth sermon series at the Glenview New Church. Please contact Mark at for current details.
