Becoming a Wise Elder – a six-week online E-course!
Sponsored by Spirituality & Practice.com
If we each are to live our best second half of life, to embrace these years and flourish in them, we need to consciously shift our perspective. We can no longer ignore the wisdom that is irrevocably lost to future generations when elders are marginalized or rendered invisible. The more challenging our world, the more we need our elders to share the lessons they have learned, to lend us their problem-solving skills, and to enhance our lives by imparting their unique gifts. And as elders ourselves, we need to embrace this role for ourselves, our families, and our communities. Becoming a wise elder demands from us very different attitudes, disciplines, and life skills, many of which have not yet been clearly associated with increased longevity. This new terrain promises to be both daunting and exciting, and we will need to be courageous in the face of our fears and uncertainties.
Please join Angeles in this six-week online E-course, being sponsored by Spirituality and Practice.com. The course materials will be emailed to you Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays for your reflection and practice sessions, and includes an optional on-line Practice Circle to integrate your learnings.
