Inspired by Richard Rohr’s book Falling Upwards this Retreat will explore the second half of life journey, which can be a very positive and challenging adventure, rather than ‘coasting’ to the end of the road. We will look at the first half of life and its aims; the moment of crisis which may make us question; and the second half of life journey which focuses on our purpose. At any time of life we may suddenly realise that we are mortal and we will die. For most people, this comes in the second half of our life; but an illness, an accident, the loss of a loved one, may precipitate this realisation earlier. Can we prepare for that end? Can we use the time left to us to deepen our relationships with people and with God?
