Rabbi Dayle Friedman Webinar on “Embracing Reality: Spiritually Preparing for Dementia”

On May 29, 2019, the ElderForum webinar series from Sage-ing International hosted Rabbi Dayle Friedman, who presented “Embracing Reality: Spiritually Preparing for Dementia.”

This webinar is one in a series of monthly webinars presented by Sage-ing International (sage-ing.org). SAGE-ING INTERNATIONAL is committed to transforming the current paradigm of aging to“sage-ing” through learning, community building and service.

SAGE-ING is a new way of aging. It is looking at life in a new way as we grow older, a spiritual practice that involves harvesting the wisdom of our lives, transmitting that wisdom as a legacy to future generations and giving back through service.

With a confidence born from harvesting life experience and with a humility that sees service as the natural result of continued inner growth, we find ways to serve every day. This generosity of spirit elicits joy in human relations, while positively benefiting the communities and cultures we serve.
