Turning Points

Turning Points is a series of five workshops designed to explore self and purpose — to open our eyes to the grand narrative of our lives.

Turning Points is a series of five workshops designed to help explore self and purpose — to shine a light on threads and themes that weave through our past and reflect in our present, bringing us to clarity about why things are as they are and what is being asked of us. Its aim is to open our eyes to the grand narrative of our life.

The premise of this work is that everything about a life is purposeful. The program represents the unique, practical implications of that belief and is ideal for those in midlife.

Each workshop is limited to four people.

Weekly Workshop Session Themes:

  • Week 1: Discerning my quest.
  • Week 2: How did I set all this up?
  • Week 3: Nailing my leading edge.
  • Week 4: What makes me hum?
  • Week 5: What is being asked of me?

In out-of-the-way places of the heart,
Where your thoughts never think to wander,
This beginning has been quietly forming,
Waiting until you were ready to emerge.

For a long time it has watched your desire,
Feeling the emptiness growing inside you,
Noticing how you willed yourself on,
Still unable to leave what you had outgrown.

It watched you play with the seduction of safety
And the gray promises that sameness whispered,
Heard the waves of turmoil rise and relent,
Wondered would you always live like this.

Then the delight, when your courage kindled,
And out you stepped onto new ground,
Your eyes young again with energy and dream,
A path of plenitude opening before you.

Though your destination is not yet clear
You can trust the promise of this opening;
Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning
That is at one with your life’s desire.

Awaken your spirit to adventure;
Hold nothing back, learn to find ease in risk;
Soon you will be home in a new rhythm,
For your soul senses the world that awaits you.
