CONSCIOUS AGING WORKSHOPS                                               


 

Description

At these workshops you will learn how to:

  •  Explore unexamined, self-limiting beliefs, stereotypes and assumptions about aging and make better, more conscious choices about our worldviews on aging;
  • Develop self-compassion to cope more effectively with change, worry, and stresses associated with aging;
  • Discover and reflect on what has given heart and meaning to our lives and how that informs our intentions for our aging process;
  • Enhance connection and reduce isolation from others and the web of life by understanding our shared humanity in the aging process;
  • Reduce fear and increase acceptance in the presence of death and dying for ourselves and for our loved ones.

 

The workshops will focus on listening to our own inner wisdom and guidance, integrating Talking Points and best practices, sharing in intimate conversation circles, and listening to the collective wisdom of the group.
