Richard Rohr published Falling Upward to help us examine our possibilities and limitations as we age. We will use his ideas to reflect on the first halves of our lives related to family, education, skills, hobbies, career choices, health, lifestyle, and spirituality, and apply those insights to help us create a plan for a 'higher sense of fulfillment in our next life phases.' Though the author is a Franciscan monk, this class will be non-sectarian.
