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

Saturday March 9, 2019 – 9:30 a.m to 4:30 p.m.

Scarborough (Portland area), Maine USA

The Program:  
Fear of dying and avoidance of considering our own death keeps us from living fully. A healthy relationship with death and dying, on the other hand, helps us to live well. In this interactive workshop we will explore the last stage of life from a number of perspectives, including:
  • What we believe and feel about our own death and dying
  • How we can talk to family about our wishes for our end of life
  • What we will leave as a legacy
  • What we can do now to prepare for our inevitable death
  • How we can grow spiritually in our later years
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, which is recommended (but not required) as advance reading.
Come prepared to share your beliefs, explore new ideas, and expand your intellectual, practical and emotional understanding as well as your ability to live and die without regrets.
