Jolts can derail us — or they can propel us into reclaiming and remaking our lives. They prompt us to ask questions about our values and purpose. Psychologists have been studying this phenomenon for some time; one research team at the University of North Carolina Charlotte back in the mid-1990s named the phenomenon “post-traumatic growth” (PTG). Since then, PTG has emerged as an important field of study for psychologists and social scientists.
Jolt explores a range of PTG experiences – -the death of a child, life-threatening illness, plane crashes, terror attacks, natural disasters – and also a wide range of growth responses.

About Mark Miller
For more than a decade, Mark Miller has researched and written about what motivates people to reinvent their lives. He is a nationally recognized expert on retirement and aging; he writes a column for Reuters, and contributes to The New York Times and other national news outlets.
Mark is the author of Jolt: Stories of Trauma and Transformation, which tells the stories of people transformed by growth following trauma, and the new paths that they pursue.
Some are on missions to help others or to make things right in the world, while others embark on new careers. Some people simply find that their relationships grow deeper, or seek a stronger spiritual dimension in their lives.
Crossing the threshold into late life can feel like a high-wire act without a net. But, if you are retiring or rewiring, ill or caregiving, feeling purposeful or disoriented, yearning to serve or do spiritual practice, you can learn to cross over from denial to awareness, from distraction to presence, from role to soul.
How do we explore who we are beyond work? How do we uncover the unconscious material that erupts around losing our roles, losing our loved ones, losing control of our bodies, losing our faith? And how do we overcome the denial, resistance, and distraction that arises with these changes?
If you want to move past denial, fear, and resistance to discover your dreams and opportunities for this stage of life, join us to redefine “age” and to help you re-imagine and reinvent it for yourself.
