Spiritual Eldering

Naramata Centre Society, Naramata, BC

Event Description

Program Description

Let’s ensure that the decades following the years of paid work and home-making 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, practising, and creating as we become the kind of community that will make this kind of difference in our kind of world.

Jim Kalnin & Lois Huey-Heck Jim Kalnin & Lois Huey-Heck are now back in their home in Oyama having spent a few years on site at Naramata Centre while Lois was a member of the management team and program staff. Their shared passion is visual art and the pursuit of beauty in all its diverse expressions. Jim pursues that in the garden as well as the studio, while Lois brings her artistry to the practice of spiritual accompaniment independently and as a member of the program team of the Pacific Jubilee Program in Spiritual Direction.
