Life expectancy has improved considerably during the past couple of decades. Most of us will look forward to twenty or more years after retirement. We will all age but how we age is up to us. We will explore issues that directly impact the 50 plus population such as health choices, the end of long term relationships, planning for retirement and our beliefs on aging. In this workshop we will learn ways to thrive at any age, learn ways to gain perspective on the aging process - the truths and myths of aging, cultivate a positive approach to the future and see the new possibilities that this stage of life can bring and learn how to embrace transitions and challenges.
