What is Your Life Telling You?

Last summer, I started writing a book about living with intention so that I didn’t die with regrets. My working title: Not Dead Yet.

The writing was going well. I was exchanging pages regularly with another coach. I was starting to believe that maybe, just maybe, I might see this […]

On longing, envy (and yes, writing)

There was a time in my early forties when I once spent the better part of a day shopping for a soap dish and toothbrush holder that would perfectly match the brushed nickel faucets in my newly remodeled spa bathroom. Back then, I was extremely proud of my just-spicy-enough jambalaya […]

The New Story of Your Life

The ongoing pandemic, combined with cultural, environmental and economic upheaval, have prompted many of us to consider what we want our lives to look like going forward. We ask: Am I using my gifts? Am I living a life of purpose? Is my life fulfilling? This workshop will help you begin to envision what you want the story of your life to become, as well as how the stories you're telling yourself might be standing in your way. (Note: This is not a class about writing, but we will be using writing prompts during class to get at deeper truths.)

Living a Purposeful Life

What is it that Jane Goodall, Walt Whitman, Susan B. Anthony and Harriet Tubman all share? At first glance, the lives of these impressive people don’t have much in common. But peer a little closer and you’ll find a common denominator: all understood their gifts, found and embraced their purpose in life and made great contributions to others. Now consider your life and these questions: What are your gifts? What is your purpose? How are you using yourgifts to contribute? If you’re longing to discover a path with more meaning and fulfillment, join longtime Enrichment instructor and purpose guide Shari Caudron for a class that will help you begin to explore these questions and connect with what the French call your raison d’etre—reason for being. Caudron holds a deep belief that in order to live a purposeful life, it’s essential to connect with and express what is uniquely yours.
