Sage-ing is about becoming a spiritually radiant, socially responsible elder.
Please join us for this weekend retreat that offers the opportunity to dive into the principles and practices described by SI's founder, Rabbi Zalman Shacter-Shalomi. These are: to age consciously by facing our fears, uncovering the wisdom of life experiences, healing wounds, forgiving ourselves and others, and charting a path forward that involves passing on a legacy, serving as an elder committed to healing the planet, and facing mortality with dignity and grace.
Participants will be guided in a process by Certified Sage-ing Leaders to do the inner work of aging in a safe and nurturing environment, in the company of peers. In Rabbi Zalman’s words, we hope to effect
“a conscious transformation of the downward arc of aging... into the upward arc of expanded consciousness.”
Who will benefit:
- Older adults who wish to design the next stage of life and the lives they touch by aging consciously
- Professionals and care-givers who work with elders
- Clergy, spiritual directors, social workers, hospice workers
- All persons interested in exploring a new paradigm of the life cycle as described in the best-selling book, "From Age-ing to Sage-ing" by Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Schalomi. Please read before the workshop!
Our materials are not specific to any religious discipline, but enhance spiritual maturity for persons who embrace any faith or humanistic practice. This workshop fulfills the prerequisite for enrolling in Certified Sage-ing Leadership (CSL) training.
