The first half of our lives is centered on establishing our identities, building our world and moving up. As we transition into the second half of life, however, our worlds often fall apart in certain ways and we begin to search for meaning. In this event we will explore how experiences of failure and suffering are integral steps on the path to spiritual growth and maturity. We will also explore the counterintuitive and inspiring concept that it is through falling down that we can truly begin to understand what it means to go “up.”
