Mindfully Blooming Into Retirement: Embracing Change and Discovering Meaning

  • Copper Beech Institute 303 Tunxis Road West Hartford, CT, 06107 United States (map)

This 6 week course offers a novel opportunity to come together with other newly retired folks and those anticipating retirement soon, to examine what sparks your interest, gives you purpose and meaning and what is wanting to bloom forward. This unique time of personal change, of uncloaking our work selves is a wonderful opportunity to give birth to new ideas, goals, and ways of being. This interactive group experience will offer a framework of support, tools to ground into mindfulness and mindful self-compassion practices along with neuroscience to help underscore the process of change. Come join in the discovery with others who, like you, are asking some very similar questions about "who am I, what do I want, where can I find purpose and meaning" along with perhaps feeling some loss over the shedding of our work selves. Mark your calendars now for the free orientation on Friday, September 20th from 10:30-11: 45 am.

Come join us as we:
- Use the practices of Mindfulness & Mindful Self-Compassion as a foundation as we explore the process of retirement.
