“Awakening the Sage Within” Workshop (Full)
Please note: this workshop is currently full. To be added to the waiting list, follow registration instructions below.
Today, most people approaching elderhood can expect to live another 20 or 30 years. But how do you want to live those years? Sage-ing (also known as Spiritual Eldering or Conscious Aging) is a model for engaging the elder years more deliberately, more joyfully, and more compassionately. Sage-ing can help us to develop a balanced plan for eldering that is personally fulfilling and also beneficial to others.
During this interactive workshop, we will introduce Sage-ing concepts including life review, forgiveness work and issues surrounding mortality. We will explore images of aging and the role of spiritual development in the capstone chapter of life. Finally, we will begin development of a personalized plan for our own eldering, including service to others and leaving a legacy.
This workshop is created by the people at Sage-ing International, based on the best-selling book “From Age-ing to Sage-ing” by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi. It will give you the opportunity to join with several other seekers who wish to explore how conscious aging can transform our lives.
