Exploring the work "From Age-ing to Sage-ing": A Live Talk

Facilitator: Felice Rhiannon in partnership with Sage-ing International

Life expectancy in the UK has increased to over 80 years. This gives us a remarkable opportunity to live long, full, meaningful lives. This opportunity has never existed before.
We have been given the gift of changing the paradigm of ageing. The question then arises, what shall we do with these ‘bonus’ years? How shall we live them? What will our legacy be to those who follow?
In partnership with Sage-ing International.
* Please note that this is an online talk, delivered via Zoom.

Event time: Wed 25th Nov 2020 at 4:00pm - Wed 25th Nov 2020 at 5:00pm

Several decades ago, Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi asked himself just those questions as he approached 60 years of age. The result of his thinking and feeling into those questions was the book entitled “From Age-ing to Sage-ing” where he set out a map for conscious ageing, which he called ‘sage-ing’.
Based on his work, Sage-ing International created a workshop called “Awakening the Sage Within”. We all have the capacity to age with joy, creativity and passion. Like all maps the workshop takes us along a path that has challenges and laughter, obstacles and joy. The map asks us to look at how we think and feel about our ageing process, what we imagine a wise elder to be, how we find balance in the aspects of our life, including our spiritual life.
The map provides processes to review our lives, consider forgiveness and, of course, face our mortality as well as leaving a legacy. In truth, this is a sea change in our approach to ageing, one that will have lasting effects on not only our personal lives, but on the lives of everyone we touch. Enjoy this live talk with Felice Rhiannon, a chance for a conversation deeply worthwhile!
