Falling Upward


January 18th, 2016
Location:  Myron Stratton Home
555 Gold Pass Heights (off Hwy 115)
Time: 3 PM to 5 PM
Cost:  Free
Facilitator:  Charlie Coon

We will view and discuss a film based on Richard Rohr's book, Falling Upward.
Richard Rohr seeks to help readers understand the tasks of the two halves of life and to show them that those who have fallen, failed, or "gone down" are the only ones who understand "up." Most of us tend to think of the second half of life as largely about getting old, dealing with health issues, and letting go of life, but the whole thesis of this book is exactly the opposite. What looks like falling down can largely be experienced as "falling upward." In fact, it is not a loss but somehow actually a gain, as we have all seen with elders who have come to their fullness.
