How to thrive in your 50’s, 60’s and 70’s

June 2nd- 4th

with Alan Heeks and Jane Sanders

Venue: Hazel Hill Wood, Salisbury


This weekend is a supportive space to explore your questions about midlife and beyond: a space to find your gifts,gain fresh inspiration,and move through challenges.The 50’s, 60’s and 70’s age range is a time of big change for most of us, with new possibilities, but also losses and fears that need facing. During this life stage you may want to reinvent yourself and your aims in life a few times over.

Alan and Jane have wide experience of leading personal and spiritual development groups, especially at this magical 70 acre wood which offers wisdom, support, and space for reflection.
We will shape the weekend to meet everyone’s needs.

The processes on offer will include:

  • Ways to hear all the different aspects or voices within you, and integrate them
  • Using quiet time in the wood, guided meditation and group support to find a new sense of yourself and your direction
  • Learning about natural resilience from the wood, to help you face stress or fears about the future.
