Fall Transition Workshops get underway!

WorkshopsPhoto.jpgNavigating major transitions, especially in the second half of life, can be difficult, but it can also be joyful and rewarding. If we see transition as such, our journeys become positive and purposeful, offering time for review, rediscovery, retooling, and re-emergence.

Enter LearningLife's Transition Workshop series, which kicks off on October 17.

Transition Workshops are designed to help participants prepare for the next stage of life by allowing them to take a step back, rekindle their sense of purpose, make new connections, explore options, move toward meaningful "encore" work, and embrace community engagement.

These half-day workshops feature lively interaction with a community of learners, presentations from outstanding experts, and practical strategies and tools attendees can employ in their own lives.

So, whether you are searching for your encore career, looking forward to retirement, or just want to revive your sense of purpose and connect with like-minded individuals, take a look at this engaging new series.

Full workshop details, instructor bios, and registration information is available on the LearningLife Web site.
