As we approach the second half of life, the question of “What gives our life meaning?” reemerges as we naturally 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-Shalomi, we will uncover the unique gifts that our years of life experience provide along with the opportunity to grapple with what is happening in our world. We will explore the idea of the Great Turning, recognizing that old systems and institutions are breaking down and that new possibilities are emerging, while honoring our own life experience, interests and passion.

We invite you to take this opportunity to decide how you want to go forth into this time of your life.
