A Sentence That Describes the MEA Experience?
Some of the most transcendent experiences in life are difficult to put into words: witnessing childbirth or someone dying, falling in love, being on the Burning Man playa at night, or attending the wedding of your oldest child. These moments are beyond language and cannot be fully expressed. I’d put this past weekend’s annual MEA alum reunion (now called "homecoming," thank you, Christine Sperber) in that category.
For years now, we've heard the same thing about MEA. Alums have told us we should take photos of each person's face at the start and end of the workshop and then post them on our website. But, we're not a weight loss clinic (although we are a "soul-find" clinic). Ultimately, photos can't capture the interior redecoration that's gone on inside each of our compadres' bodies and spirits.
Based upon recent conversations with a number of MEA alums and our team, I stumbled upon a sentence that partially captures the MEA experience:
Combining the science of longevity and the art of living, MEA offers a crucible for life-changing conversations with “like-hearted” mid-lifers who are ready to unleash their wisdom in the world.
I know this doesn’t capture it, but we're going through a website redesign, so we're open to you sending us any sentences that you think sum up the MEA experience. Thanks.
