Taking the Midlife Leap, One Step at a Time – with Jett Psaris
2019: Taking the Midlife Leap workshop at Esalen: March 8 – 10, 2019
If you are between 40 and 65 years old, you are undoubtedly attempting to navigate the emotional, psychological and spiritual dimensions of your midlife passage. What makes this an experience unlike any other is that it requires the death of who you have known yourself to be and promises the birth of who you could possibly become.
Far too many people die in their fifties and are not buried until their eighties because they did not take the full journey possible at midlife. The whole point of midlife is to allow the construct of who you are and the life you have created to fail. It’s not just an opportunity for a fresh start; it’s a mandate for one.
Midlife catches everyone unawares.
To know what the midlife passage
is about requires a guide,
someone who has made the journey
and knows the terrain.
In this workshop you can step beyond the coordinates of the known and discover how to:
- treat midlife as an advanced spiritual undertaking
- identify and navigate the necessary tasks of the four phases of the midlife transition
- know when your spirit door opens and learn how to keep it open
- recognize and respond to the law of reverse effect
- pierce the membrane over your creativity
- replace life’s perishable substitutes for love with the real thing
- navigate by desire, instinct and impulse
- cultivate faith that when your new being is born, your new life will appear
- become “full” of yourself, in the best possible way
