Halloween can be a time for reflection on why so many people, ourselves included, cling to the practice of wearing masks long after Halloween has come and gone. Before the fun-filled and harmless practice of wearing Halloween masks became so popular, the mask was a symbol of deception, hypocrisy and lies. The purpose of the mask was to hide the identity of the wearer while displaying the image of another. It negated the need for accountability for one’s behavior. The mask to this day often represents what people say and do that is not true. At its core, the mask is the “poster child” for inauthenticity. One of the core values of the quest for personal growth is discarding the need for masks, that is, acting out roles we are no longer, or never were, suited to play. Motivational speaker Constance Hallinan Lagan encourages people to shed the protection of the mask and supports them in their quest for authentic living.  Topics include the reasons we use masks, tools to help us discard masks, embracing vulnerability, celebrating imperfection, and enjoying the benefits of living in truth. The seminar concludes with a guided visualization meditation. No advance registration is required for this free seminar.
