Encore Tampa Bay presents - Rethinking Your Identity in Mid-Life. Who do you want to be?
Friday, August 26th; 9-11AM
Description: You’ve had many roles in your lifetime…parent, worker, teacher, spouse. By midlife, our identity may seem well established. You’re proud of what you’ve accomplished! However, as you approach midlife: • Do you find those roles shifting? • Do you long to do something else? • Is your work no longer as satisfying as it once was, or maybe you are not working and want to add some meaning to your life? Thinking about life beyond these roles can be mentally and emotionally daunting. Join us for a thought provoking discussion group, where we will cover areas such as: • Creating an expanded sense of self through mindful reflection and focus on new areas of your life. • Exploring sides of yourself that may have been suppressed • Discovering new opportunities to empower your emerging identity. With the support of friends, come refashion your identity, embrace your passions, and explore new pathways. This is also a great opportunity to work with Bobbi Gemma, Master Certified Coach, Executive Coach and Life Architect with the Gemma Group.
