A one-day event offered by Sage-ing® International
Saturday June 9, 2018 – 9:00 a.m to 4:00 p.m.
co-hosted with Katonah SPACE, a non-sectarian center for community and the arts in Katonah, New York
Today, most people approaching elderhood can expect to live another 20-30 years.
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.
Besides being an excellent introduction to Sage-ing concepts, this event can fulfill 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.
Presenter: Jerome Kerner, CSL, a Certified Sage-ing Leader, is trained in Gestalt psychotherapy at Southern Connecticut University, studied Transgenerational Family Systems at Hellinger Institute, Washington DC, and trained with the Center for Conscious Eldering and Sage-ing International. As an architect for over fifty years Jerome learned to see and honor the uniqueness in each place and person. Now an octogenarian, he loves sharing the purpose, passion and meaning he discovered through Sage-ing work.
There is no fee for this event, but a free-will offering to Sage-ing International is strongly encouraged. SI is a 501-c-3 non-profit organization.
