ReDesign Your Life For Retirement Online Course - Fall 2018

Are you quickly approaching retirement or “retired and unfulfilled” and wondering what's next?

Most people do not realize just how challenging retirement is, especially in western culture where work is so important for many of us, sometimes more than family and health. Retirement can bring change to almost every aspect of our life: purpose, meaning, roles, prestige, routine, home, finances, leisure, relationship, friendships, health. It’s also when we begin to enter elderhood which can be threatening in a society that stigmatizes aging and condemns old age.

During this 8-week interactive course,  we'll explore the various stages in the retirement transition process, with tools and strategies to help you navigate successfully. You'll explore your personal beliefs and attitudes about work, leisure and retirement, and clarify what a meaningful, fulfilling lifestyle means to you. You will experience the richness and creativity of visioning, as you imagine new dreams and new possibilities for this life stage. Join us for an exciting journey of exploration and re-invention!

This program is for you if you want to:

  • Explore beliefs, fears and stereotypes about retirement and aging,
  • Clarify your new life purpose in this life stage,
  • Commit to weekly accountability that keeps you in action and motivated,
  • Discover and learn through interactive discussions, experiential exercises, and reflective exploration,
  • Collect a rich library of resources about the retirement transition,
  • Connect with other like-minded individuals going through the experience of retirement, and,
  • Participate in life long learning and personal growth.
