They shall beat their swords into plowshares,
 and their spears into pruning hooks:
nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
neither shall they learn war any more.
— Isaiah 2:4

About Second Journey

Second Journey was founded in 1999 and will cease operations in 2017. During those seventeen years, it was among a small number of emerging social-change organizations whose shared mission was to birth a new vision of the rich possibilities of later life…

  • to open new avenues for individual growth and spiritual deepening

  • to birth a renewed ethic of service and mentoring in later life

  • to create new model communities — and new models OF community — for later life, and

  • to marshal the distilled wisdom and experience of elders to address the converging crises of our time

Captured in the shorthand of its logo . . . Mindfulness, Service and Community in the Second Half of Life.

The organization pursued this mission through publications, including an online magazine, Itineraries, and book releases; through workshops and Visioning Councils with their focus on the challenges of Creating Community in Later Life; and through the rich resources on this Web site. The Web site will no longer be updated; it will, however, be maintained so that its resources will continue to be available.
