Navigating the Crossroads: Reinventing Yourself in Your 40s and 50s // Part 2: Aging

Join us for an intimate workshop with the Spiritual Fitness Method, who will guide you through this life stage and help you work towards alignment!

This period of life can be incredibly challenging. We hear about the midlife crisis and menopause, but these terms tend to minimize the real struggle associated with this phase. The reality is that many of us are struggling with our professional lives and goals, the aging process, keeping all of our most important relationships healthy, and making the time to do the things that rejuvenate us and fill our spirits. Despite these challenges, this life stage presents an enormous opportunity for growth and ultimately great happiness and satisfaction. It takes introspection, intention, and often some wise guidance.

Either sign up for the three-part series, covering career, aging and relationships, or choose to attend the workshop that best fits you.
