We can experience aging as a curse or a blessing depending on our attitude. During these eight weeks, through mindfulness practice, dialogue and reflection, we will open a conversation about living with more aliveness, gratitude and love as we move forward. Please join us as we …

  • Explore and challenge the age related stereotypes prevalent in our youth oriented culture
  • Open up to new ways of living with intention, meaning and purpose, beyond familiar roles
  • Recognize our role as elders in the community and the responsibility of handing down wisdom gained through life experience
  • Cultivate self-compassion for the body, mind and emotions as we journey though the final third of life finding peace in the face of uncertainty
  • Let our awareness of death be our guide to living more fully, authentically, and open-heartedly
  • Learn practices that will support us during this phase of life

This is a rare opportunity to move gently towards our anxieties about aging in an intimate and supportive setting.   For more information or to register email: lorivolpe@verizon.net.
