*Next* Third Act Transition Programme

Are you in transition or contemplating a transition? Are you or your colleagues retiring soon? Have you realised you are no longer retiring, but rather transitioning to a whole new period of life that could last 25-30 years? This interactive eight step programme will give you a clearer sense of your new Third Act in Life.  

The programme is delivered by Dr Edward Kelly, Founder of The Third Act (www.thethirdact.ie).

Course Benefits

  • A deeper awareness of the inside-out nature of this transition from the second to third act and a clearer sense of the meaning or purpose that will underpin it.
  • A series of practices that will help you to address underlying issues that impact on health, wealth and well being in your Third Act.
  • A new ‘Third Act profile’ that will help you to describe what you want to do and be in your new Third Act in life.
  • A chance to activate your imagination, that which allows you the possibility of a different future.
  • An opportunity to network with other talented Third Actors exploring what this transition is all about.

Course Programme

  • What are the personal consequences of having a new Third Act in life? What do you think you are going to do and be in your Third Act?
  • Introducing ‘The Double You’: the archetypal stages and thresholds in transition.
  • Where are you now? A financial, health and well being check up.
  • What’s your story? How your nature and nurture formed you in the first act in life.
  • What needs were you addressing? What stage are you now at in your own development?
  • Creating a new Third Act profile, what kind of Third Act would you now like to have? What have you always wanted to do and be but had to put aside?
  • Where are you now? What meaning or purpose now motivates you?
