From Age-ing to Sage-ing: In Partnership with Sage-ing International

Facilitator: Felice Rhiannon

Event time: Mon 1st Nov 2021 at 6:30pm - Mon 22nd Nov 2021 at 9:00pm

With the remarkable opportunity to live longer, healthier and more fulfilled lives, we have the choice to change the paradigm of ageing…we can age outside the box.

Using the interactive model created in the ground-breaking book “From Age-ing to Sage-ing”, we will explore the inner and outer process of embracing a new, vibrant way to grow into our lives as elders, stepping across the threshold from adulthood to elderhood.

In partnership with Sage-ing International.

This is an online course, delivered via Zoom.

Ageing To Sageing

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 Ageing) is a model for engaging the elder years more deliberately, more joyfully, and more compassionately. Sage-ing can help us to develop a balanced vision for eldering that is personally fulfilling and also beneficial to others.

During this highly interactive workshop, we will introduce Sage-ing concepts including life review, forgiveness work and issues surrounding mortality. We will explore images of ageing and the role of spiritual development in the capstone chapter of life. Finally, we will begin development of a personalised plan for our own eldering, including service to others and leaving a legacy.

These materials are not specific to any religious tradition, but serve to enhance spiritual maturity for persons who embrace any faith, humanistic practice, or none.

This 4-part online course is based on the best-selling book: From Age-ing to Sage-ing: A Profound New Vision of Growing Older byRabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi.
