Life 3.0 Presents: Beyond the Bucket List – The Surprising Potential of Life’s Third Act

Saturday, September 17 9:30 am – 12:00 pm Blue Cross Blue Shield Association, 255 N . Michigan, Chicago, IL 60637

Growing older presents challenges, but it provides us with a profound opportunity to take stock of our life experience and alchemize what we’ve learned into satisfaction, compassion, and creativity. This workshop introduces participants to the concept of “the life project,” or how we are the architect of the person we’ve become and the life we’ve led. From there, we’ll identify ways to pack more purpose, meaning, and delight into each day. Participants will leave with a plan for their ideal “third act”—not a bucket list of distractions but a capstone project that expresses their dearest hopes and values. Village member Karen Terry, Ed.D., a life coach and writer, will lead the workshop. Click here to register through the Calendar
