The ability to self-reflect and be honest with oneself is a
key to one’s emotional health and individuation process.
This crucial component is important at any stage of life
but all the more so as we age and want to feel that our
lives have meaning. As we grow older, it is imperative to keep in
mind that life will not continue as it has until now. Physically and
psychologically, we are changing. Welcome or not, our bodies
transmit messages that we need to be attuned to; and our
psyches and our souls require equal attention. We can face these
demands and push ourselves into uncomfortable terrain, or ignore
what may be our last opportunity to move forward.
As we enter later life, we should ask ourselves what we want to
save and what we want to let go of and if there is any unfinished
business that we have avoided addressing. Are there friends,
family, loved ones, or life partners toward whom we still hold
grudges? Have we truly worked through our own shadow issues?
Have we learned to accept ourselves and appreciate our talents
and the blessings in our lives?
Have we been paying attention to our dreams? Are they different
in substance as we grow older? Now that there are fewer years
ahead of us and time is more valuable in many ways, is it healthier
to sever connections with those who have hurt us and who
surround us with negative energy? Or should we use this time to
make amends and try to repair relationships that have gone awry?
Are there goals we once aspired to but have not met? Is there a
book we still are hoping to write, an instrument or language to be
learned, art to be made, countries and places to be visited? If so,
is it still possible to do something about these things before we
run out of time? Alternatively, should we acknowledge that our
priorities and goals have changed and that it’s time to let go of past
dreams and fantasies? Have we faced what awaits us at the end of
our lives on both a spiritual and a physical level?
Led by an outstanding and dynamic faculty, through a combination
of presentations, workshops, sharing, and discussion, we will
explore together these vital and important questions that linger
in later life.
