The second half of life is not defined by a particular age. Rather, it begins in a moment brought about by all manner of life changing circumstances–a time when we recognize the need to reconsider who we are apart from roles, occupations, and daily duties. Join us to explore this rich, creative time of life through writing, discussion, and mindfulness exercises.
