When Retirement Comes: Re-negotiating our Purpose

When Retirement Comes: Re-negotiating our Purpose - Shifting from Quantity to Quality

November 4, 9:00am-4:00pm

$45 preregistered/prepaid, includes lunch. No registrations at the door.

Let's clear up a serious misconception right away. The word retirement implies a withdrawing or retreat, as from worldly matters or the company of others. This is what frightens us the most. To be out of contact, out of the flow, relegated to the sidelines, or become irrelevant, as the rest of the world continues with their purposeful endeavors. Nonsense! This is NOT the time to pack it in! This is a pivotal time to shift our priorities and energies from a life of quantity (career, job, education, money, accumulation of things, a life of doing, etc.) to a life of quality (depth, meaning, a life based more on being, etc.) This is the last significant developmental stage in our lives. It requires that we navigate it with the wisdom we have reaped throughout our lives. We will explore some common reservations regarding retirement and begin to write a new script, a new storyline that honors this unique opportunity in our lives. We have worked hard to get here. It is our turn now. Let's do this!

Thomas Roberts is the owner of Innerchange Counseling in Onalaska, WI; an author, an artist, a dynamic speaker and frequent presenter at Assisi Heights Spirituality Center.
