Living a Life of Passion and Purpose Workshop, June 17

Barbara is holding another one of these great workshops. Our go-to coach at Continuum Crew, executive and life coach Barbara Waxman works with adults at midlife ‘and better’. It is especially relevant as we hear of the redefining of retirement, another stage of adult development and the minds of those in that life phase turning towards thoughts about their legacy.

Some of you may have been lucky enough to catch Barbara’s session at the recently held ASA conference, where there was standing room only. If you are local or will be in to the San Francisco bay area, don’t miss it. One attendee called it a “spa day for the soul”. We asked Barbara to describe this workshop, full details below.

We govern our lives with rules, lists, checks and balances; yet many of us don’t apply that same principle of discipline to laying out a path for our own personal journey, particularly when our definition of meaningful work may have changed along the span of midlife. In a recent landmark U.S. study on the sense of happiness, the essential element was not wealth, losing those last ten pounds or the number of friends. Those that
self-identified as happiest all had lives that they felt ‘had purpose’. Whether this is a calling, a faith or a mission, a life with purpose is attainable by everyone.
