Streamlining your life by reducing possessions and making purposeful choices will be discussed 7 p.m. CT Monday, July 16 at Lifetree Café.

The program, titled “Simplify Your Life: How a Hollywood Millionaire Walked Away From It All,” features a filmed interview with Tom Shadyac, a feature film director best known for Ace Ventura, The Nutty Professor, Patch Adams, Bruce Almighty, and I Am.

“There are certain ways we are expected to behave,” Shadyac said in the interview. “You ask for as much money as you can get, you buy things when you have that money, and you get a beautiful house to accentuate your success. As I walked in that model, I felt a hypocrisy, so I called it into question.”

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is located at 1602 U.S. Highway 98 in Mexico Beach across from El Governor Motel.
