Thrive Beyond 65: Re-negotiating our Purpose; the Shift from Quantity to Quality
March 7, 9:00am-3:00pm
$25 preregistered/prepaid, includes lunch.
Let’s clear-up a serious misconception right away. The word retirement (typically 65 and beyond) implies a withdrawing or retreat, as from worldly matters or the company of others. This is what frightens us the most. To be out of contact, out of the flow, to be relegated to the sidelines, to become irrelevant, as the rest of the world continues with their purposeful endeavors.
Nonsense! This NOT the time to pack it in! You see, this is the all-important time to shift our priorities and energies away from a life of quantity (accumulating education, careers, family, jobs, money, things, a life of doing etc.) This is the last significant developmental stage in our lives. It requires that we navigate with wisdom from that we have reaped throughout our lives.
We will explore some of the reservations regarding retirement and begin to re-write a new script, a new story line that honors this unique opportunity in our lives. Our panelists will share their experiences and invite discussion. We have worked hard to get here. It is now our turn. Let’s do this!
