Fear Less, Live More with the End in Mind Project

Partnering with Innovations in Resilience

At End in Mind, we inspire people to seek growth through life’s struggles. We imagine a world where people have the courage to engage the uncomfortable and experience the possible. On this retreat, expert facilitators will provide daily sessions to make space and expand the possibilities in your life. We explore your desires and examine the fear that stops you from living your best life. Regardless the stage of life you are in, the desire to live with purpose and meaning continues to expand and grow.

In Our Hearts

A mosaic reflects the beauty in what’s broken. It takes the shards of what was and transforms them into something vibrant and new.
Our lives are mosaics of loss, but loss can lead to growth, new insights and new beginnings. Our digital mosaic honors loved ones who’ve died and the lessons they taught us.
We also salute those who live with meaning and inspiration at any stage of life. Make a donation in a loved one’s memory.
