Re-Envisioning the Second Half of Life

Special Guest Facilitators: Maria & Michael Morwood

Friday-Saturday, April 25-26 • ($125)

The second half of life is sometimes dismissed as a life that is done, when in reality, the second half of life is full of inner-wisdom and the ability to offer a deeper appreciation for this one chance to give our own human expression of God -- one that we can pass onto our children, grandchildren, family and others.

Cultivating wisdom (sage-ing) is an ongoing process that associates the second half of life with self-development, learning and spiritual growth. In this retreat, we invite people in their second half of life to get in touch with their inner-voice and uncover the obstacles of trusting that wisdom.

The process enables people to find validation, self-worth and meaning from within, combining insights from the Sage-ing Circle framework and elements of contemporary Christian spirituality.

Please bring a journal for writing.

Register online by April 21.

Maria and Michael Morwood live at Kirkridge Retreat Center in Pennsylvania.

Maria has qualifications in education, theology and gerontology. She is a Sage-ing Circle Facilitator and a member of Sage-ing International. Michael is the author of nine books on spirituality and the need to reshape Christian imagination and thinking. He travels far and wide giving workshops, presentations and has considerable retreat and adult faith formation experience.
