Close to Retirement? Mason’s Center for Consciousness and Transformation is offering a free program titled “Your Next Chapter — Charting a Course for Retirement” to help those about to retire transition to this next phase of their lives.

During the class, individuals will explore their personal resources, attitudes, preferences, motivation, skills and interests. They will receive the tools necessary to create a unique individual retirement plan with choices that may include community involvement, new careers, leisure enrichment, healthy aging and lifelong learning.

If you are within three years of retirement, you are invited to attend a two-session series on Feb. 25 and March 11 from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. in Enterprise Hall, Room 418. Note that you must plan on attending both sessions.

Since participation is limited, you must register by sending an e-mail to Martha Souder at
