Awakening the Sage Within (ASW)

Have you read From Age-ing to Sage-ing by Rabbi Zalman Schachter Shalomi?  Are you ready to be more engaged with sage-ing?  Many people find that an excellent next step is to attend an introductory program about sage-ing, in which they can learn while sharing their experiences with others.  Awakening the Sage Within (ASW) has been developed over the past year by Sage-ing International to provide this introduction to sage-ing in an affordable one-day program.  ASW is being presented by Sage-ing Leaders around the United States and Canada, and may soon be available in or near your community.

The ASW program introduces sage-ing concepts including life review, forgiveness work and issues surrounding our mortality.  We explore feelings about aging and the role of spiritual development in our later years.  Finally, we begin the development of a personalized plan for our elder years, including serving others and leaving a legacy.

Besides being an excellent introduction to sage-ing concepts, the ASW program also serves as a prerequisite for our Certified Sage-ing Leader training program.

We have nearly 80 Sage-ing Leaders ready to present ASW throughout the US and Canada (and Australia and Israel too!).  Look over the list below of scheduled ASW programs to find one near you, check the flyer for that program and sign up! If you are interested but there is not yet one scheduled near you, let us know by contacting SI’s Education Coordinator.  We’re here to help!
