SAILing-into-the-future-FINALWe have another wonderful workshop coming up as part of our SAILing into the future! series. This time we hear again from the humorous, endlessly positive Mary Helen Conroy and her friend Galen Metz. The workshop is called Life’s A Daring Adventure – Carpe Vitam! 

This month’s innovative workshop is for persons looking to review, retreat, and reinvent their lives. We will discuss the life issues surrounding one’s next chapter. Whether you’re looking to retire or just put some pizazz into your current life, this workshop is for you. We will create a small group learning environment, a safe place of community to renew and reinvigorate your life and plan your next phase.

Five great reasons to attend:

  1. You’ll come away with a framework to help guide your plan for your next chapter. Not just an idea, but an actual foundation for the next step!
  2. You’ll gain help in making the first, sometimes unnerving, decision to write your next chapter. What does this “next chapter” mean for you? Whatever it is, it can be scary or daunting. Mary Helen and Galen are here to help.
  3. You’ll have a better understanding of change and transition in your life. This is something we can use at every stage of life, and you can pass it on to your loved ones! Transitions are tough, but this workshop will help you navigate them with less stress.
  4. You’ll leave with an action plan and the support to make it happen. A specific plan to make the next chapter of your life the best chapter: Perfect for what we do here at SAIL!
  5. You’ll have fun along the way. Trust us, Mary Helen and Galen will definitely enrich your soul with a good laugh…or seven!
