Change is not always a welcome visitor, but there can be hidden treasures in the transition process from one stage of life to another.

By attending the upcoming retreat titled “The Butterfly Passage: Taking Flight from Transition,” readers can better understand the opportunities presented by change.

The facilitators, Cynder Sinclair and Mary Jean Vignone, will focus on the positives offered in life transitions.

Sinclair, who earned her doctorate degree in organizational management and leadership from University of Phoenix in 2008, has been leading nonprofit organizations since 1975.

Vignone is senior vice president of learning and development at Santa Barbara Bank & Trust, where she assists managers and employees to prepare for organizational and professional transitions. She received her Ph.D. in human and organizational systems from Fielding Graduate University in 2011.
