Igniting a New Formula of Unique Self Expression
July 15 – 17 in Los Angeles

Imagine how you’ll feel when your past no longer determines your present or future.

Imagine your second half of life with radical possibilities that you never imagined before.

Several Big “What ifs?”

  • What if the first half of life was only R & D, research and development?
  • What if you could mine that first half of life for your own Formula
    of Unique Self Expression (FUSE)?
  • What if you could then light that FUSE to experience and express all
    that life and YOU could be from here on out?
  • What if it’s really only the second half that matters?
  • What if you have yet to do what you really came here to do?

If all this were true… What would be possible for YOU?

Based on principles in the upcoming book,
The Back Forty: 7 Critical Embraces
for Life’s Radical Second Half,
the 2½-day INFUSE Program supports midlifers
to create the second half as the best half of life.
“Through his spiritual daring, Gurney sheds light upon the vital subject of discovering one’s inner wholeness at any age and stage on life’s journey. He moves his readers into a revolution in consciousness: loving ourselves for who we are, for the innate capacities of the heart and soul.”
—Michael Bernard Beckwith, author of Life Visioning and Founder of The Agape International Spiritual Center

The 7 Critical Embraces:

  • Past
  • Present
  • Gifts
  • Values
  • Initiation
  • Purpose
  • Presence

The sooner you understand and embrace these life
re-contextualizing concepts, the sooner your radical Back Forty begins!

You wouldn’t mind releasing anything that’s held you back from your fullest Self expression, would you?
