For many in the modern world the first half of life is lived by a set of stories and agreements that are focused on family, children, career, success, and material achievement. Often we are successful with these. Yet when we reach the threshold where these goals of life are completed, we find ourselves feeling lost, adrift, and not fulfilled in the ways we had expected.
This is when mid-life can become a “crisis.” When we lack the understanding of the sacredness of this transition, many of us struggle with a sense of loss, an undefined grief, and a yearning for something more. This can leave us with unanswered, plaguing questions of what the next phase of life is truly about. This can be chaotic, confusing, and painful.
Mid-life, in its spiritual truth, is a time in which we are meant to answer the call to give honor and gratitude for what we have achieved. It is also a time to look deeply within ourselves for the clarity, vision, and purpose of what the next part of our soul’s journey holds for us. Mid-life is a time of re-awakening our creativity, sensuality, vitality, sexuality, purpose, and freedom as we return to our own spiritual paths and seek the communities in which to thrive during the next eras of our lives.
Mid-life Rites of Passage workshops can be conducted for women only, men only, and mixed groups. An introductory workshop can be completed in a full-day format. For those who wish to delve more deeply, a full weekend or three-day intensive is appropriate.
