Mid-life...reaching the moment of truth,
you are confronted with a painful reality; you acknowledge
carrying the opened wounds and of hurting experiences,
of unfulfilled dreams and of personal losses; you sense your
efforts of survival and adjustements no longer leading
Joseph Campbell, anthropologist, illustrates this stage very
well using this metaphore: We spend the first thirty-five
or forty years of our existence climbing a tall ladder in order
to finally reach the top of a building; then once we're on
the roof, we realize it's the wrong building."
Mid-life is the point in one's life where normally you expect
to start gathering the fruits of all those years of education
and work experiences, but instead you're suddenly caught
off-guard with devastating disappointments.
You mourn the loss of a child or spouse due to a tragic
accident or due to illness; you struggle with a
matrimonial break-up and divorce; your family physician
diagnoses a terminal illness and your days are numbered; you
lose a good job and your financial security is endangered...
In very simple words, you feel like the floor suddenly
crumbled under your feet.
This website will represent dual goals:
education about mid-life: its concerns and it's journey
bringing renewal in your life
individual and/or collective support in a private, secured
and confiding environment.
Reaching the crossroad of life can be a time of crisis, but also
a time for a new beginnings.
Thank you so much for creating this space for fellow mid-life
pilgrims like me. It is very heartening to know that there will
always be a space in this big space called the Net to find
words of encouragement. Keep it up!

I think more people need to be made aware of this site. Very
helpful information. I'm at the mid-life stage and some of
these symtoms I struggle with. Save people trips to the Doctors
