A one-day event offered by Sage-ing® International

co-sponsored with the Longmont Senior Center

 Sunday, April 7, 2019, 9:00 am – 4:30 pm

The Program:

Today, most people approaching elderhood can expect to live another 20 or 30 years. But how do you want to live those years? Sage-ing (also known as Spiritual Eldering or Conscious Aging) is a model for engaging the elder years more deliberately, more joyfully, and more compassionately. Sage-ing can help us to develop a balanced plan for eldering that is personally fulfilling and also beneficial to others.

During this highly interactive workshop, we will introduce Sage-ing concepts including life review, forgiveness work and issues surrounding mortality. We will explore images of aging and the role of spiritual development in the capstone chapter of life. Finally, we will begin development of a personalized plan for our own eldering, including service to others and leaving a legacy.

The ASW can be an excellent resource for professionals working with elders and students pursuing careers that focus on an elder population. This event also fulfills the entry prerequisite for the Certified Sage-ing Leader (CSL) training program.

Our materials are not specific to any religious denomination, but serve to enhance spiritual maturity for persons who embrace any faith or humanistic practice. Based on the best-selling book:   From Age-ing to Sage-ing: A Profound New Vision of Growing Older    by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi.
