Join us for this unique hybrid offering beginning in September!

Register for this Event

Online Registration for the series by August 28, suggested donation $75 – $150

This is a community-focused, connected series, with one registration for all sessions, and is limited to twenty participants.

The second half of life is a threshold that can often bring a new set of challenges as well as a new set of opportunities. The shifting of priorities, the letting go of identities, the creation of new ones; they can all leave us asking, “what’s next?”

During this 9-month journey together, you will have the opportunity to explore the common themes that arise in mid-life and be invited – through both individual and group reflection, activities, and sharing – to consider the possibilities this phase of life might be offering you.

Starts on Saturday, September 9. There will be 6 sessions: 3 in-person at Tau Center and 3 virtual via Zoom
