LIFESHIFT: WORK AND THE SPIRITUAL JOURNEY
Day Retreat at Alverno College
Saturday, October 11

Life is about facing and managing change: career, personal, family, spiritual. Take the opportunity to reflect on life and faith and explore avenues for new career, job, work, and/or retirement opportunities. People in transition need a vision for their gifts and language to describe their work/life objectives.

In this day-long retreat you will engage practical career psychology and spiritual ideas which will help clarify your vocational goals. Activities include presentation/discussion, personal writing, film, music, reflective solitude, and one-to-one consultation. You will set short- and long-term goals and develop resources for transition while learning imaginative ways to experience God’s presence on the journey. 

Instructors: Thomas Bachhuber, President of The Center for Life Transitions, and Monica Meagher, Spiritual Director, Faber Center for Spirituality at Marquette University

JOB SEARCH COURAGE
Looking Inside and Out for Hope and Help

In this challenging employment market, job seekers must manage a variety of personal, print, and web resources. Additionally, you are encouraged to explore deeper places within yourself for strength and guidance to be successful. Richard Bolles, author of the bestselling What Color is Your Parachute says, “In times of transition, if you happen to have an old faith hanging in the closet, it’s probably a good time to bring it out.”

This workshop will bring together leading ideas on resume development, networking, personal branding, and job seeking along with opportunities to address the fears of transition. You will discover practical advice on job search strategies as well as find new perspectives, spirit, and stamina for your transition. Format will include presentation, discussion, and experiential activities.

This session focuses on barriers to listening and practical techniques for improving listening skills.
