As we approach the second half of life the question of “What gives our life meaning?” reemerges, especially if we are no longer raising children, are working less or are seeking to create a new direction for our lives.  At this stage we might also consider the legacy that we are leaving for future generations.

In this experiential workshop, based on the work of Joanna Macy and Rabbi Zalman Schachter, we will appreciate the splendor of Creation, and share our personal responses to the state of the world – a most exciting time to be alive. We will explore the idea of the Great Turning,  as old systems and institutions are breaking down and new possibilities are emerging, and we will   honor our own life experience, interests and passions.

We invite you to take this opportunity to explore these questions with others in a supportive and engaging environment as you decide how you want to go forth into this time of your life.
