Today, most people approaching elderhood can expect to live another 20-30 years.
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 these highly interactive workshops, 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.
Besides being an excellent introduction to Sage-ing concepts, this event fulfills the entry prerequisite for the Certified Sage-ing Leader (CSL) training program.
Our materials are not specific to any religious denomination, but serve to enhance spiritual maturity for persons who embrace any faith or humanistic practice. Both women and men are warmly welcomed at this "Awakening the Sage Within" event, which is grounded in ideas from the best-selling book: From Age-ing to Sage-ing: A Profound New Vision of Growing Older by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi.
