The Looking Forward Discussion Circle for Those 50+ at Walkertown

Do you ever worry about the future? Looking Forward describes and demonstrates how to “look forward” to the future--including tomorrow--with increased positivity, confidence and lightheartedness. Participants typically leave the meeting feeling good, with a greater sense of optimism, wellbeing and connection with others.

You've gained the life experience, would you like to share it? Looking Forward, Living Forward hosts light-hearted but thoughtful group discussion circles for those who would like to reflect on their life experiences and share how those experiences have shaped their journeys as they approach retirement and the years beyond.

Come gather with us to discuss positive aspects of maturity, and share the chapters of your life story that have made you a better, wiser, and more caring person.

The discussions, led by Looking Forward, Living Forward hosts, examine the past and identify key wisdom that we each have gained through experience. We consider how we can carry that wisdom forward into the next phase of life. The discussions confirm that real wisdom is in everyone, and we learn much from one another.

The discussions are free and open to the public. You can choose to attend one session, or attend them all, and please bring a friend. Many guests find a sense of bonding and community through the discussions and are happy to continue attending each week.
