Have I Mattered? | Can I Still?

November 17-18

“… if we in the older generation wish to develop virtue in the young, we must first develop corresponding virtue in ourselves.”

John Kotre

Journeying in the Second Half of Life

Indiana-Michigan M.A.L.E.s invites you to retreat, taking time away to focus on the questions that come as we find ourselves looking over the top of the hill we’ve been climbing and begin to see down into the valley ahead of us …
Have I Mattered? Can I Still?
Teaching tales. Our own stories. Experience in nature. Join us as we weave these together to illuminate ways of creating a legacy that gives meaning to our lives and makes a difference in the lives of future generations

Come explore how you can be generative so that your life matters.
