LIFE REIMAGINED: Discovering Your New Life Possibilities  

Sunday 8pm

Are you at a point in your life where you're asking "What's Next?

You've finished one chapter and you've yet to write the next one. For many it happend at midlife, but it can happen at any point. It's time for real possibilities and it defines a new phase of life. It's called Life Reimagined.

Legendary coach Richard Leider has just released his newest book, LIFE REIMAGINED: Discovering Your New Life Possibilities which offers a new way of thinking about "what's next? in your life. Richard opens wide he subject of aging and the seismic attitudinal shift taking place as baby boomers face what used to be called their retirement years.

Are you ready for your Life Reimagined moment?  Richard provides a road map, encouraging you to engage in this new phase of life with choice, curiosity, and courage.


Legendary personal coach, Richard Leider has updated and expanded his international bestseller, REPACKING YOUR BAGS: Lighten your Load for the Good Life.

"Living in the place you love, with the people you love, doing the right, work on purpose" is how Richard defines "the good life.”

Many of us have come to acknowledge publicly what we privately knew all along: that surviving adolescence and early adulthood did not ensure us a tranquil, jolt-free passage through the rest of our lives.

We change; our priorities and values shift; confidence grows, dissolves into doubt, returns; relationships evolve, break apart, reform; work loses energy or takes on new interest---all creating the need to unpack and repack our bags.

~I'm living in the "What's next?" question...How do I find new purpose and meaning?

~I've successfully reached midlife...How do I reimagine the next stage of my life?

~I am at a work inflection point!...How do I find work that fits my gifts, passions and values?

If you are looking for a new reason to get up in the morning, Richard's presentations will provide seasoned guidance and takeaway tools to help you manage life's inevitable transitions , no matter what age or stage you find yourself.


Find meaning. Live longer, better.

We all want to find our purpose, eventually---that thing that gives us deep meaning and makes us feel that our life, indeed, matters. Richard defines purpose as "our reason for getting up in the morning". That dimension within us that tells us who we are, where we came from, and where we're going. Purpose fills us with passion, drive and direction. When all else seems unsettled, uncertain, or impermanent, purpose gives us the will not just to live, but to live long and well.

Purpose is not just for a gifted few, but something each one of us possesses and can uncover. Goals are different than purpose. Goals without purpose are often meaningless.

Over three decades, Richard's extraordinary exploration of the power of purpose has taken him all over the world---and his research about the importance of purpose has shed light for millions.


The number one stressor on many of us, today, is 'busyness"---always going somewhere, never being anywhere. Our 24/7, always "connected,” lifestyles are leaving us feeling disconnected. Constant change is leaving us feeling numb, like we're coping without being fully alive. Reacting instead of reflecting. Succumbing to the drain of indecision. We avoid decisions. Talk a lot about what we're going to do, but remain stuck. Lay awake nights, sleepwalk by day. Experience unusual irritability as the norm. Talk to the same friends about the same things week after week.

Richard has led walking safaris in Tanzania, East Africa for three decades, spending time with one of the last remaining tribes of hunter-gatherers learning their ways. This presentation will take you "back to the rhythm" of life of the "original people" and share the lessons learned that apply to living your own version of "the good life."
