From Age-ing to Sage-ing®: Deepening the Sage Within

With Annie Klein and Nancy Gray-Hemstock

October 5 - 9, 2020

As more and more people are living longer, we want those extra years to be inspiring and fulfilling. A great gift of our older years is the increased potential for deepening wisdom and expanding possibilities. In this interactive workshop we will explore ways to enhance and embrace the age-ing process, empowering us to transform our lives through self-discovery and spiritual unfolding. Discover how to live these bonus twenty or thirty years with meaning and joy!

Participants will learn how to:
• Harvest their wisdom and offer it as a legacy to future generations
• Examine the myths of aging and affirm the elder years
• Connect with one’s inner wisdom through growth techniques of psychology and spirituality
• Nourish ourselves physically, emotionally, mentally, socially and spiritually
• Look at the past as a ‘life review’ and ‘life repair’ with the wisdom of what we know now; and understand that forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves
• Create peace of mind by doing the legal, medical, and spiritual preparation as a way of facing one’s mortality
• Identify ways for Elders to serve as mentors and healers in society
• Develop one’s own vision of self as an Elder

Who will benefit:
• Older adults and Elders and their families
• 50-something adults who wish to design their second half of life
• Anyone interested in ‘conscious’ or positive aging
• Professionals and care-givers who work with older people
• Clergy, spiritual directors, social workers, and hospice workers
• All people who are interested in exploring a new paradigm of the life cycle as described in Rabbi Zalman Schachter- Shalomi’s book, From Age-ing to Sage-ing©

This workshop  fulfills the prerequisite for enrolling in the Certified Sage-ing Leadership (CSL) training through Sage-ing® International. It also fulfills the required Part One of the Yerusha Sage-ing® Legacy Program.

Listen as Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi expounds knowledge on elderly awakening:
