How well we navigate changes and transitions in our lives has a direct impact on the degree of well-being, purpose, and satisfaction we experience day-to-day. If you’re considering a big change, are in the midst of one now, or are still feeling the effects of past changes, this workshop offers you the personal understanding and tools to open to the next phase of your life with clarity and true empowerment.

Throughout this highly interactive program, we offer tools and perspectives to support you in more skillfully managing change. Your experience will include short meditations, personal assessments, interactive exercises, and time for your personal questions and observations. The meditations offer you practical skills to use in your daily life. The self-assessments are designed to give you clarity about your specific situation and support you in taking next steps.

During this workshop, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Discover a “Path to Well-being” that is beyond getting what you want and getting rid of what you don’t want in life.
  • Identify your values and intentions so you have a basis for making wise decisions.
  • Recognize habits of mind that undermine you and learn practices to disengage from their influence.
  • Explore which areas of your life need attention, gain insights about your strengths and challenges in dealing with change, and begin to strategize about next steps.

Expect a weekend full of dynamic inquiry and the opportunity to learn essential life skills for meeting all your changes and transitions with authenticity, confidence, and clarity.
