Many of us, having grown up In a society that focuses on productivity and the material world are at a loss when entering a stage of life where the skills and knowledge we acquired don't seem to apply anymore.  Who are we when we are no longer a job title, a parent, a provider?  How do we navigate this new, virtually unknown terrain of no longer working nine to five, no longer being defined by what we do?

This course is designed to offer a compass and companionship for the journey.  It is challenging but there are some tools and roadmaps available to us.  We will gather in community to explore this together and learn not only from the insights of those who have gone before but from each other as well.
