Spiritual Eldering

September 15, 2019 - September 21, 2019
Offered by Naramata Centre

With Tim and Donna Scorer and Lois Huey-Heck and Jim Kalnin

September 15 – 21, 2019

Let’s ensure that the decades following the years of paid work and homemaking are a time of creativity, engagement, mentoring, and compassionate accompaniment. After all, that could be a third of our lives! Let’s build a culture in which aging people learn what it means to grow into eldership, a time of life in which experience and wisdom become a resource and gift for community. As a group of people 55 and older, we will spend time together listening, remembering, exploring, practicing, and creating as we become the kind of community that will make this kind of difference in our kind of world.

The Spiritual Eldering Program runs in the mornings and evenings, with afternoons free.

For participants aged 55 and up.
