Midlife requires a radical imagination: a willingness to tell ourselves new and better stories about our lives. We need narratives that encourage us to connect the dots between past, present, and future in a way that allows us to reflect on who we’ve been, who we are, and who we hope to become, and to reconnect with our hopes and dreams for ourselves, our families, and our communities.
In this thought-provoking workshop, Ann Douglas will reflect on the conversations she had with the more than 100 midlife women she interviewed for her brand-new book Navigating the Messy Middle: a Fiercely Honest and Wildly Encouraging Guide for Midlife Women.
In addition to sharing some highlights from her research, Anne will also encourage participants in to reflect on their own learning and growth as midlife women and to share some of that thinking and learning with others.
Expect a workshop that is kind, encouraging, and real—and that leaves you feeling anything but alone.
