Mason’s Center for Consciousness and Transformation (CCT) and the Department of Psychology are sponsors of “Exploring the Bonus Years,” a workshop organized by the Positive Aging Coalition that will be presented on Saturday, June 11, from 8:30 a.m. to noon in the Johnson Center Cinema.

Lois Tetrick, Mason psychology professor and director of CCT, is a Positive Aging Coalition founding member and director.

If you are a Northern Virginian who is, or soon will be, entering your post-career years and are interested in redefining yourself as you approach this exciting time of life, this free workshop is for you.

Learn from two speakers about this stage of life that baby boomers are entering in record numbers. And be among the first to learn about developing a Next Chapter, a community that values and supports the bonus years, right here in Northern Virginia.
