This repeats an event on the first of the month forever:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
* Attend Monthly Meeting
   <2014-05-01 +1m>
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

How do I indicate that the event should be repeated monthly for 6 months
only? Time-shift?

I think so: C-c C-x c (org-clone-subtree-with-time-shift)

FWIW, this is a frequently requested feature and I will propose
something other than cloning headlines for the next major Org version.

I entirely agree. Thus far I have been pulling my hair out getting diary
sexp statements to work. They do, but unless you understand how to write
them, it is time consuming searching the web for instructions.

Thanks, Aric
