Second Half of Life: Checking Our Spiritual Vital Signs

If you are in the “second half of life” (50-something onward) we hope you can come to this day for self-reflection, good companions, and insight. Some of you are beginning that journey, others well on your way, some nearing graduation. This is a day to check your fitness in the journey, your spiritual vital signs.

Already we have grown through the ups and downs of our life experiences, honed skills and intuitive abilities, and developed faith, relationships, and even some wisdom! Now there is new opportunity and a clearer call to deepen interiorly, widen our horizons of interests and care, and grow to hold ourselves and others with more acceptance and gratitude.

Like the first half, the second half is both joyful and strenuous. It has particular challenges, expansions, and graces. Prayerfully we will take note of our spiritual “vital signs.” How is our flexibility in times of change, and our balance on this moving ship? How fluid is the circulation and flow in our interests and relationships? How sturdy is the structure of our faith and hope? How good is our muscle tone for the journey ahead?

As we reflect together, we will be encouraged to realize our graced energies. It has been said: “Love does not put everything to rest; it puts everything in motion.” The Divine will be moving in us. Come ready!
