Welcome to THE Central Ohio Chapter!
The Central Ohio Chapter encompasses the Columbus Metro area
and surrounding suburbs.
August Event - Health, The Ultimate Form of Wealth
Life today keeps our fight or flight stress responses on high alert. This drains our energy and worse, creates openings for chronic disease. Conditioned to believe that the resulting pains and anxiety are a “natural” part of aging, we easily accept them into our daily lives and even joke with friends about them. Centered around a sick model, much of western medicine confirms this belief, prescribing pills that mask symptoms. Unless the side effects surface, the pills may make us feel better, but too few actually heal.
We Will Learn About
- New perspectives on health and wealth
- Seven of the body’s energy centers called “chakras”
- Easy-to-use techniques for maximizing energy, reducing pain and stress, and improving sleep quality
- Resources for further exploration after the session

August Letter from the Chair: Tenth Anniversary Central Ohio TTN Membership Drive
In recognition of our 10-year anniversary as a chapter this year, it is time to re-create the same energy and enthusiasm that started the chapter.
For those who have been with the chapter for years, you’re comfortable with one another. You’ve made some great friends and contributed to getting the chapter where it is today. The chapter needs to continue to grow and evolve as an example to the women we serve.
Between now and the end of the year, we’re launching a two- pronged membership campaign.
First, we ask you to find individuals who could enjoy what TTN offers.
Please to reach out to your contacts and friends, friends of your oldest daughter. Call a younger colleague at your former place of employment. Tell them about how TTN has affected your 50 and forward life.
As an incentive, current members will receive a TTN branded gift for each friend or former colleague who joins our chapter.
If you are still active with a local professional organization for women, or know others who might help secure a few minutes to introduce TTN to their membership, please contact Carol Oswald. Our chapter and the membership drive would enjoy exposure with these groups. We are available to attend one of their meetings this fall and share TTN.
Second, we will offer the Women in Transition Workshop on October 12, 2019 with a goal to attract women new to TTN.
It’s time to attract the next generation of women to the Central Ohio Chapter of TTN—those 50 and forward wondering about their own “what’s next.”
All new members who join and attend the Annual December 2019 Celebration and Reflection, December 16, will have their name entered for a drawing to win a complimentary second year of membership.
