Synchronicities make life interesting. Each year, I return to my two week timeshare located Corridor in Baja Sud. I’ve shaped it into my own wellness retreat by watching the sun rise over the Sea of Cortez, walking through landscaped gardens, running on the beach, reading, swimming, and disconnecting from world news and other distractions. When a friend sent me a notice of Chip Conley’s Modern Elder Academy located an hour north, I was intrigued. Location is everything, they say. And this part of the world remains magical to me.
But it was Chip’s concept that struck me as so needed among those at an Expressive Age (50 to 75). He’s focused on how we “repurpose the 2nd half of midlife” and “how to turn fear into curiosity.”
When I discovered that Chip Conley’s book tour Wisdom @Work was landing in New York City, I wanted to meet him. After the book launch conversation with Elizabeth Lesser, founder of Omega Institute, I introduced myself and asked to interview each of them for Expressive Age.
Take-Away: Being at an Expressive Age has given me the freedom and courage to take risks and open doors that I might not of had the insight to go through earlier. Shaping one’s life at an Expressive Age requires a willingness to move out of your comfort zone. Are you ready?
