Some of what we explore:
Myths and beliefs about aging
What it means to age consciously or to be a spiritual elder
A personal life review
Patterns, lessons, and learning from cycles of our own lives
Facing our own mortality so that we may live more richly
Our legacy to the world
Our illuminated self and inner wisdom
What calls us now into the future
A meaningful takeaway from the Conscious Aging class for me has been the benefits to our children and grandchildren of harvesting our past. Our memories enable them to learn our history, to know what influenced who we are today and to, hopefully, inspire them.
I wondered at first. Other classes have been too touchy feely for me. This class is different. The issues are relevant and the approaches effective. The sessions were worth it – well worth it.
Participating in the classes about Conscious Aging, I have gained insights about myself as well as potential and exciting thoughts for the future I can still have as a Spiritual Elder. This learning came from the excellent teachers, Mimi and Ruth, but also from the other participants who shared their beliefs and life stories. I came away touched by new vistas and clearer, more purposeful goals.
