Are you thinking about retiring? Planning ahead for your biological, psychological, social, and spiritual needs might help you prepare for retirement, but aren’t we really talking about more than one stage of life?
Join Lisa for a free workshop at the 17th annual Depression Conference in Ithaca New York on Wednesday, November 10th, 2010. The theme of this year’s conference is: Stories of Our Transitions – Recovery can be learning to tell a new story.
Learn the difference between a fifty-five year old retiree and a seventy-five year old, and how to plan for being ninety or one-hundred. We’ll learn about a sacred time of life called “Elderhood” and the special gifts Elders have to offer society.
This workshop will offer some intriguing insights and lively discussion about retirement and aging, and give you the tools you need to make a healthy and happy transition into your own future.
For more information about the conference and to register, please contact the Mental Health Association in Tompkins County at 607-273-9250.
