"Change is Hard – Let's make it Easy"

Sage-ing®: Growing Whole, Not Old

You are invited to attend a series of discussions to explore a way of living life more consciously, more joyfully, and more compassionately. Through Sage-ing® we uncover the blessings that comprise the rich fabric of our lives, and we transmit the wisdom of a lifetime of learning to heal and nurture ourselves, our loved ones, and our world.

The sessions will be highly interactive with readings, meditation, ritual, reflective writing, group process, discussion and more.

The course is not specific to any faith or denomination and will serve to enhance spiritual maturity in any faith practice. The material is based on the book From Age-ing to Sage-ing: A Profound New Vision of Growing Older by Rabbi Zalman Schacter-Shalomi.

It is advised that you purchase a copy of the book prior to the class and read as much as you are able. Used copies are available.
