You need only claim the events of your life to make them yours.
When you truly possess all you have been and done,
which may take some time, you are fierce with reality.
~ Florida Scott Maxwell
So you may be wondering, is this for me? Am I at mid-life? Of course, we don’t really know the answer to that until we die. If we die at 70, mid-life would have been 35 – and if we die at 110, mid-life happened at 55! But, as you ponder whether this retreat is right for you, think about mid-life not so much as an age – but rather as a stepping stone on the journey of life. If you find yourself in a place where you are thinking about transitions, questioning your life, and struggling to find your voice, then this retreat is for you!
In this retreat the skilled facilitators will help create a quiet, focused, respectful space, in which the noise within us and around us can subside, and we can meet stillness.
