Your 30s and 40s are a transitional time in life. For most people, these decades are a time to make unique choices about how you want your life to be, and to find and step into your power. Yet these years can be fraught with questions, concerns, and fears. How do I know what will make me happy? What is meaningful? How can I be more authentic? Who am I, anyway…and how do I make big decisions? This workshop offers tools, practices, and principles that can help you answer these questions.
The program will explore topics including intimacy, self-esteem, fulfillment in work, money, doubts and insecurities, and life balance. Each day there will be teachings, small group discussions, personal inquiry, and participatory exercises. You’ll have the opportunity to assess the issues in your life, develop options, and create a plan for making decisions. Each day there will also be some form of movement practice and a meditation experience. The workshop will emphasize making wise choices through clarification of your values. Additionally, there will be written assignments to allow you to get clearer on where you are presently in life and also create a vision for yourself. This retreat will specifically focus on looking within versus dwelling on external circumstances. Expect a weekend of self-exploration, self-inquiry, and ultimately, self-knowing for people in their 30s and 40s.
