NEST Village Presents: The Third Act: Joy and Excitement in the Later Years

Tuesday, June 15, 4-5:15 PM, Zoom
Are you wondering what you will do after retirement? Considering pursuing a new passion, career, or life change? What do you expect in your Third Act? These are questions many of us ask as we move into a new phase sometimes thought of as “The Third Act.” Please Join NEST on June 15th to hear from people with experience in redefining their lives during their Third Act. The Third Act: Joy and Excitement in the Later Years will explore the psychological and emotional process of “what is the next phase” and provide tools to individuals as they enter this new period in their lives. This program will feature a keynote presentation by Patricia Cavanaugh, a psychotherapist and retirement coach who has vast experience in guiding people as they plan for their Third Act. You will also hear from a panel of community and NEST members on how they have navigated their Third Act and learn how NEST is supporting people in their transition.
