Paths to Creative Retirement

Planning a Meaningful Retirement

Let us show you how to create a meaningful retirement that matches your values and priorities at the Paths to Creative Retirement (Paths) workshop. We invite you to consider questions such as:

  • When should I retire?
  • How will I spend my time after I stop or reduce my work?OLLI members
  • How will I find purpose and meaning after I retire?
  • How will my identity change in retirement?
  • How will retirement affect my relationships with family and friends?
  • How do I investigate work and volunteer opportunities?

This highly interactive three-day workshop helps you achieve your desired personal goals in retirement. With guidance and support from facilitators and other participants, you will discover your values, identity and long-deferred dreams. In the process, you will gain valuable insights and inspiration to create tangible next steps.

Paths focuses on the non-financial aspects of life’s second half; decision-making exercises and thought-provoking discussions reveal stimulating opportunities. Transform anxieties about your next chapter of life into a reassuring learning process—Paths is truly a unique retirement workshop.
