Making a 70Candles! group

Roseann, Age 70

On Jan. 4, 2018 I found your website through your essay in the book 70 Things to Do When You Turn 70. I placed a posting and was so happy and comforted in the kind and insightful responses of “friends I have never met.”

On Jan. 5, I crossed the threshold and became 70… It was momentous for me, and strangely, after months and months of fearing, worrying, reflecting, planning how to honor and celebrate this special day, I felt a sense of peace and calm…I did it! I made it…I am here now, the best version of myself…and with more visions and dreams and hopes to manifest on this planet even more, the Soul Stirrings that are wordless, but have been inside me- and all of us, I think- since we were children…

So…now, I have put forth an invitation to friends to join in the making of a 70 candles group in my home on Feb. 18. (in New Jersey…) I have just received my ordered copy of your books, and am about to start planning this very happy event.

I would love to hear from any who are running groups if you have any words of guidance as we begin this new adventure! I have many friends in their 60’s and 70’s who are truly in need of the support and encouragement, the vision and dreams such a group can provide. I am truly excited to share this wonderful work!

70 is truly a time to share the LIFE we have lived and the LIFE we yet yearn to live…to BE together in a Heartful and Soulful community…to help all of us really know that we are never alone.

Will keep you posted on our Jersey group and truly look forward to hearing from other group leaders and participants to learn from your wisdom and experiences as we explore 70 and beyond together…

With Love and Gratitude,

    In response to Roseann starting a group in NJ:

    That is great and your story is so similar to most of us passing through that gate of 70!!!
    As a friend of mine who turned 70 said last week, “well it is 9:15 AM and nothing has fallen off.” Too funny!!
    Good luck with your new group. Be sure to let us know how it goes!!
