Location: First Metropolitan United Church
This program is for those who have experienced a change in life circumstances: divorce, separation, job loss, empty-nesting, retirement, aging, a change in life style.
We are constantly living with change: change of career, change in life style, change in a relationship, divorce, job loss, or moving. “Change” is a shift in the situation. Transition, on the other hand, is the process of letting go of the way things used to be and then taking hold of what they have now become. In the time between the “letting go” and “taking hold again” is the chaotic time of transition; a time of sadness, loss, letting go of old roles and identities, learning to live with uncertainty; and eventually it is also a time of opening up to the spaciousness of life, and anticipating new beginnings. We will be working with teachings from various spiritual traditions, as well as the work of Carl Jung, to help move through this phase of uncertainty. Guided meditation and group sharing will be used to assist participants in this journey towards their new identity.
This group, facilitated by Linda Mulhall, MEd will meet for five evenings, for two hours each evening, meeting every two weeks. To assist the group in establishing an open, safe environment, no new members will be added after the first session. After the first session, participants will be asked to commit to an additional four sessions.
Sessions are OPEN TO ALL: Everyone is Welcome! Cost is $25. Please register for the program in advance, using the online registration form below.
