Healing your relationship with money
Kenwood resident Donna Colfer, a financial counsellor and certified money coach, will be holding a one-day workshop, “Healing Your Relationship With Money” on Saturday, Nov. 15, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in downtown Santa Rosa. (Details given upon registration).
Is talking about money scary, triggering or confusing? Do you worry that there is never enough? Become aware of the invisible ball and chain binding you to past pain so that you can experience relief, freedom, and confidence around money.
In the workshop, Colfer, along with colleague Lorraine Segal, will help identify your unconscious hardwiring around money, gain awareness of how your money patterns impact your life and relationships, learn effective techniques to release shame and blame, and start communicating clearly and compassionately about money.
Cost for the workshop is $97. Bring a family member or friend for an additional $50. Space is limited so register now. To register, call Donna at 484-4246, or email Lorraine at Lorraine@conflictremedy.com.

Farm Bureau seminar
Sonoma County Farm Bureau and Nationwide Financial will host a seminar for Farm Bureau members on Nov. 13, addressing lease transactions for agricultural land and how a transitional plan will help ensure your legacy for your family.
Leasing can provide long-term benefits; hear how from both landlord and tenant perspectives. And who shall inherit your land? Approximately 89 percent of farmers today do not have a transitional plan, by default allowing the state to decide how their land is distributed, and 70 percent of family ag businesses unsuccessfully transition to the next generation. Discover land options and learn how to put a transitional plan in place.
Speakers include Mike Kirkpatrick, advanced planning consultant for Nationwide Financial, and Mark Miller, an attorney specializing in real property, estates, trusts, and business law with McCullough & Tansil, LLP.
The seminar is from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., and will be held at the Farm Bureau office, 970 Piner Road in Santa Rosa. Complimentary lunch is included. For more information, call Anita at 544-5575 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
