When we see the way the world is going, sometimes we can do nothing but shake our heads in disbelief. If there is anything missing today, certainly wisdom would top the list. Why is it missing?

Exploring the Second Half of Life
Popular media has begun to explore the two halves of life, such as Richard Rohr’s Falling Upward and most recently David Brooks’ The Second Mountain. The second half is more than a chronological indication of age. It is an important stage of life that, according to experts, not everyone appreciates or attains. We will explore some compelling literature and theories to better understand how we can best live in the second half, looking to Rohr, Brooks, Jung, Cicero, fairytales, transpersonal psychology, and elsewhere for insight and inspiration.
