If you are between 40 and 65 years old, you are undoubtedly attempting to navigate the emotional, psychological, and spiritual dimensions of your midlife passage. What makes this an experience unlike any other is that it requires the death of who you have known yourself to be and promises the birth of who you could possibly become. Far too many people “die” in their fifties and are not buried until their eighties, because they did not take the full journey possible at midlife. The whole point of midlife is to allow the construct of who you are and the life you have created to fail.
