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

at Flagstaff Federated Church, Flagstaff, Arizona

Saturday, March 30, 2019 – 9:00am to 4:00pm

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 develops a balanced plan for eldering, both personally fulfilling and 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.

Besides being an excellent introduction to Sage-ing concepts, this event fulfills the prerequisite for enrolling in the global Certified Sage-ing Leader (CSL) training program.

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