Changes & Transitions in Your 40s and 50s: Finding Clarity and Wellbeing in Times of Change

The one constant in our lives is change and yet we often find ourselves ill equipped to manage it skillfully. How well you navigate change has a direct impact on the degree of well-being, purpose, and satisfaction you experience on a day-to-day basis. If you are considering a big change, or are in one now, or are still feeling the effects of a past change, this workshop will give you the personal understanding and tools to set a well-considered course for the next phase of your life.
Change naturally brings up concerns, fears, and questions that can lead to confusion, lack of motivation, or poor decisions. In this workshop, you will learn skills and strategies to effectively respond to the challenges of change such as:
  • Discover 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.
  • Create a strategy for effectively navigating your change.
  • Recognize habits of mind that undermine you and learn practices to disengage from their influence.
  • Identify your values and intentions so you have a basis for making wise decisions.
Over the past 25 years, leaders and other individuals, organizations, and groups have come to Phillip Moffitt for his wisdom, experience, and insight. During this weekend workshop, he will share his knowledge, time-tested mindfulness practices, and principles about the nature of change in human lives. He will focus on the specific challenges and opportunities that arise in your 40s and 50s.
Expect a weekend full of dynamic inquiry and the opportunity to learn essential life skills for meeting your changes and transitions with clarity, authenticity, and confidence.
