HEALTHY TRANSITIONS FOR THE SECOND HALF OF LIFE

WITH GEMMA JONES

Join us for a day of learning, dialogue and sharing of insights and resources through a discussion on Healthy Transitions in the Second Half of life. Various experts in aging and transitions will lead us to focus on:

Seeing the middle and later years of life as a process of maturing that provides new opportunities for discovering how to live more fully.

Listening to discover a refined sense of life purpose and renewed vocation and an awareness of the importance of self care and service for and alongside others in community.

Appreciating that the process of aging is part of our spiritual journey in which we can change and be more thoughtful and intentional in our maturing — to become whole persons, growing in our connections with God, with others, and with all of Creation.
