Spiritual Practices of Aging 2017-2018
How does the contemplative life–one of prayer and encountering God–shape one for wisdom and resiliency in the second half of life? Looking at wisdom and resiliency as markers for facing the beauty and pain of getting older, this course
addresses aspects of aging that require an “elegant kenosis” – letting go in the midst of embracing the life that God has given. Learning through awareness of God, others, and self lays the foundation for the spiritual practices.
