Transitions and Transformations: Thriving in the Midst of Change

Life is a cycle of beginnings and endings. Transitions can be hard, but they hold a positive side, too. They offer opportunity to rethink the direction of our lives. In the second and third chapters of life we may discover that our own life is similar to seasonal patterns of endings and beginnings. The fall season of life brings its own unique set of challenges and opportunities: we lose a loved one or a job, experience divorce or illness, we have an empty nest. Or perhaps we are exhilarated by becoming a new grandparent, embarking upon new jobs or moving to a new home or city. Whether the transition is positive or negative, we all have times when we ask ourselves, “How can I make it easier?” Practical strategies will be discussed to empower you in making future changes with greater confidence, less stress and the greatest potential to thrive. Class is suggested for ages 50+.
