Living an Examined Life: 21 Strategies for a Richer Journey



The first decades of our life are mostly spent in making adaptations to the world and its demands upon us. The central project of mid-life and beyond is the recovery of a deeper sense of identity, rediscovery of purpose, and the development of a more mature sensibility. This course based both on personal experience, and forty-plus years of analysis/therapy clients, identifies and explores twenty-one tasks that await each of us. These issues transpire in our lives whether or not we are conscious of them; getting more conscious and more intentional in addressing them brings a greater measure of depth, purpose, and dignity to our Journey.
