Videoconference – The Inner Work of Retirement: Shifting from Role to Soul
November 3, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pmPrepaid Cost: $35.00 – $40.00
Presented by Connie Zweig, Ph.D.
The end of work can lead to a liminal period, letting go into a sense of uncertainty, loss of identity, and loss of meaning. A depth psychological approach to this late-life identity crisis requires a turn within and the tools to break through denial, attune to the soul’s longings, and explore meaning beyond doing. If we complete the rite of passage, we find renewal in an identity beyond role. Shifting our identities from role to soul, we release the heroic ego’s strivings and become who we truly are, perhaps for the first time.
