Elder Blooming: Preparing for Living Fulfilling Elder Years

Please join us at the Brandon Library on Tuesday, September 16th at 6:30pm for "Elder Blooming: Preparing for Living Fulfilling Elder Years" with Jim Emerson.

Starting with setting the context of the new sociological and developmental era we have entered, this talk will introduce the work of The Creative ‘Third Act’ Project in three areas:

-How its sponsored workshops and conferences in the area support you in ’blooming’ in your ‘elder’ years’.

-How to take up final affairs planning with a view toward building on the quality of your relationships and applying your creativity to planning with thoughtfulness, dignity, and grace.

-How coaching services can support you in taking up new directions and finding new meaning in life.

You will have the opportunity to sign up for free trial coaching sessions, to work with the Creative Final Affairs Planner, or to sign up for an upcoming workshop entitled 'Elder Blooming' - a Workshop that Supports Blossoming During One's 'Third Half' of Life.

Jim Emerson has been a student of retirement planning as a CPA and financial manager; has become dedicated to end of life planning on seeing his parents thoughtful planning of their final affairs; and has been devoted to inner growth work for decades.

You can find out more about Jim and his Creative Third Act Project at his website: http://www.creativethirdact.com
