Falling Upward:

A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

Facilitated by Doug Wysockey-Johnson

 “You may get to the very top of the ladder, and then find it has not been leaning against the right wall.”

 —Allen Raine

This retreat, based on Richard Rohr’s classic book of the same name, is designed to help us welcome the second half of life. About this time, Rohr says “It will sound an awful lot like the voices of risk, of trust, of surrender, of soul, of common sense, of destiny, of love, of your deepest self.”

You don’t need to have read the book to participate in this retreat. Whether you consider yourself in the first or second half of life, all you need is an interest in reflecting on where you are now, and who you would like to be in the future.

As I sat with Rohr, as I read, I found that I was praying: for two friends currently divorcing, for three families struggling with drug addiction, for my ex-husband, for myself—my past self, my self yet-to-come. Rohr's framework, to put it simply, seems true.
