“Being and Doing” - Workshop at Bernardsville Library

The next meeting of Andrea Mastrobattista’s workshop series, “Being and Doing,” will be held on Wednesday, March 25 at 7:00 pm at Bernardsville Public Library (1 Anderson Hill Road).  Kurt Vonnegut once said, "I am a human being, not a human doing."  According to Ms. Mastrobattista, many people live by one modality or the other, but when we combine the two, we are our best selves.  “At the March meeting, we will discuss responsibility,” said Ms. Mastrobattista, “Part of creating and living the lives we want is taking care of tasks we don’t necessarily like doing.  This month we will talk about developing the discipline to handle those responsibilities and the benefits of doing so.”

Since 2006, Ms. Mastrobattista has been leading her inspirational workshops on Wednesday evenings at the library.  She heads a company called Operation INSPIRATION and has also facilitated workshops in the Somerset Hills such as "Facing Your Fears" and "Transforming Negatives Into Positives" in which she helped people to fully form their goals and develop a strong can-do attitude for achieving them.  Her core belief is that, no matter what circumstances people face, they have the strength and ability to create and live fulfilling and inspiring lives.  Ms. Mastrobattista has written her first children's book and is working on getting it published.  She also owns Golden Slipper Productions, a company that creates websites, social media profiles and the corresponding promotional materials (such as business cards and brochures) for small and mid-sized businesses.

There is no charge to attend the program, but advance sign-up is requested.  Register online at www.bernardsvillelibrary.org and follow the link from Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
