If you are between 40 and 65 years old, you are undoubtedly attempting to navigate the emotional, psychological and spiritual dimensions of your midlife passage. What makes this an experience unlike any other is that it requires the death of who you have known yourself to be and promises the birth of who you could possibly become. Far too many people die in their fifties and are not buried until their eighties because they did not take the full journey possible at midlife. The whole point of midlife is to allow the construct of who you are and the life you have created to fail. It’s not just an opportunity for a fresh start; it’s a mandate for one. Come step beyond the known. Place the struggles you are sure to encounter during your middle years within a greater framework that will guide you to rediscover your soulful individuality lying buried below your first-half-of-life’s obligations and definitions. Please bring a pen and a journal.
