Becoming a Wise Elder

With C. Susan Davis

March 5 - May 14, 2019

During this interactive workshop we will explore a way of living more consciously, more joyfully and more authentically during the Second Half of Life. Through Sage-ingwe uncover the blessings that comprise the rich tapestry of our lives, and we transmit the wisdom of a lifetime of learning to heal and nurture our loved ones, our world, and ourselves.

The workshop is not specific to any religious tradition and will enhance the spiritual maturity of all. Sage-ingR is based on the book: From Age-ing to Sage-ing: A Profound New Vision of Growing Older by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and Ronald Miller.

FromAgingtoSageing

We will:

  • Examine the myths of aging and affirm our elder years
  • Harvest our wisdom and transmit it as a legacy to future generations
  • Look at the past as a ‘life review’ and ‘life repair’ with the wisdom we have now
  • Understand that forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves
  • Create peace of mind by doing the work needed to embrace our mortality
  • Identify ways for elders to serve as mentors and healers in society
  • Develop our own vision of self as a Wise Elder
  • Nourish ourselves spiritually, emotionally, mentally, physically and socially

Registration closes on or around January 23, 2019
