How To Make Plans for Life
Rolene Walker will be teaching a class on how do make plans for life Feb. 21st to April 25, Tuesdays from 6 to 9 in Berkeley.
Most of our lives we have parents, teachers or bosses telling us what to do with our tie. The class is about moving from work to proactive retirement and how to do it. In the class you will discern what your true work, study, rest and play are, and come up with plans for work in those areas. We will use a variety of intuitive thinking activities such as art and movement. We will do exercises from
Joanna Macy's book,
Coming Back to Life. There will be opportunities to try new physical spiritual practices and emotional spiritual practices that help you get in touch with your spiritual self, like Taiko drumming, Taize chanting, or Sufi dancing.
There will be a spiritual component to figure out what you are called to and how to be balanced in your life, and a practical component to figure out how to realize work you are passionate about--how to find meaningful work. It is to help you clarify what you are being called to do with your life. It has two parts--listening to what Spirit is calling us to do, and then practical steps to making it a reality. It is aimed at people who want to do social justice, peace, or environmental activism primarily, but not exclusively.
It will be very interactive, and will include various meditation practices. People will choose a physical spiritual discipline and an emotional spiritual discipline to help get information from spirit that is not necessarily from the intellect. There will be practical steps to getting involved in volunteer opportunities and or starting your own organization and how to help groups make good decisions.
Where: Berkeley, Ca.
Who: People who retired or thinking
When: Tuesdays Feb. 21st to April 25.

Hello Friends, Colleagues and Clients,
We are gearing up for the January "What's Next" Sunday Salons on redefining retirement and I would love to save a space for you. As we dive into the holiday season, your thoughts are likely on friends and loved ones and what you might contribute to their lives. So, it should be. But, as a new year approaches, it will be time to claim the days as your own and to envision what you want 2017 to be. For you.
Do you feel a nudge to pause, take a breath, and get your bearings ? Are you drifting in last year's goals and dreams and wish you could re-set your focus? Or do you need to simply put new energy into your aspirations? If so, we'd love to have you join us in exploring "what's next". These Salons can help you to align your motivations and energies around your true priorities.
Our January Salon dates are 1/8, 1/15, 1/22 and 1/29. See the
for all the details. Thanks for forwarding this email to friends who may be interested.
As usual, I will have personal coaching appointments available throughout December. Contact me for more information. And enjoy your holidays !

Three years ago I decided that my life was too settled, maybe a little boring and predictable. I had an itch.
