"Deepening the Sage Within:
Aging with Wisdom"
A Sage-ing ® International retreat in the Pacific Northwest
Friday (5 pm) to Sunday (4 pm), June 28-30, 2019
A beautiful and peaceful location on the shores of Lake Washington in Bellevue
   "Often, when we're young, people ask: 'What do you want to 'do' when you grow up?'
I don't know of anyone who's asked or been asked: 'How do you want to 'be' as you
grow old?' ...This retreat asks that question and invites you to consciously explore its
nuanced answers. It provides the perspective and tools to support your
... becoming  the answer."                 - Rees Robinson, two-time workshop participant
Our Goal: We are pleased to offer this workshop which will provide the opportunity to improve the last third of life- not by trying to pretend we are not growing older, but by recognizing the value we offer, and responding in practical and positive ways to the changes in our lives. In this workshop we will provide opportunities to harvest life experiences leading to further growth.

Participants will learn how to:
  • Examine the myths of aging and affirm the potential of our elder years
  • Look at the past through 'life review' and 'life repair' exercises tapping the wisdom of what we know now
  • Explore how forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves
  • Harvest wisdom and how to transmit it as a legacy to future generations
  • Connect with our inner wisdom through growth techniques of psychology and spirituality
  • Nourish ourselves physically, emotionally, mentally, socially and spiritually
  • Create peace of mind with spiritual preparation for facing one's mortality
  • Identify ways to serve as mentors and healers in society
  • Develop a vision of self as an elder

Who will benefit:
  • Older adults and the lives they touch
  • 50-something adults who wish to design their second & third stage of life
  • Anyone interested in 'conscious aging'
  • Professionals and care-givers who work with elders
  • Clergy, spiritual directors, social workers, hospice workers
  • All people who are interested in exploring a new paradigm of the life cycle as described in Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi's best-selling book, "From Age-ing to Sage-ing." (Please read it 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 Certified Sage-ing Leadership (CSL) training.
