  • Workshop 6: Beyond the COVID-19 Experience

    Wednesday, June 16 from 1:00 to 2:30 pm MDT

    When have you learned the most about yourself and life? More than likely, it’s the times of trial and tribulation that informed and influenced your journey the most. Adversity pushes us beyond our previously perceived limits — beyond our comfort zone. No doubt, you have learned much over the past few months in light of the COVID-19 crisis. At this moment, we have a choice. Do we choose to be diminished by life OR emboldened? Please join us to explore the afterglow of adversity—the opportunity to reclaim the authorship of the story of our lives. We need not be victims of our circumstances. The possibility to write a new ending is ours to embrace.

    This workshop’s presenter, Jane W. Barton, author of Caregiving for the GENIUS, is a passionate national speaker, writer and listener. As the founder of Cardinal, LLC, she provides educational programs to assist people when confronted by the daunting challenges posed by aging, caregiving, and the end of life.

  • Workshop 7: Walking a Spiritual Path in Our Later Years

    Tuesday, June 22 from 3:00 to 4:00 pm MDT

    With age comes new wisdom and appreciation for life. This spiritual aspect of our lives is precious. Nurturing the spiritual possibilities and potential, we can find, even as one faces the end of life, much contentment and peace. Together, we can reflect on a life well lived and build meaning in every day.
