"Aging With Wisdom"
A two-day Intensive Workshop
Sponsored by Sage-ing® International
at the Center for Aging and Community
University of Indianapolis
Friday/Saturday, June 23-24, 2017
OUR GOAL: Sage-ing is a new approach to growing older. Our culture often presents a view of aging that marginalizes us as we gain experience and wisdom: It pressures us to disguise the visible signs of aging, to accept 'age-ist' euphemisms in place of respectful terms for elders, and to retreat to the edges of life to make room for younger people.
Instead, Sage-ing provides skills, philosophies, perspectives, and tools to improve the second half of life - not by trying to pretend we are not growing older, but by recognizing the value we offer, and responding in practical, positive ways to the changes in our lives.
A Sage-ing Intensive Workshop provides opportunities to harvest life experience leading to further growth throughout life. Our materials are not specific to any religious discipline, but enhance spiritual maturity for persons who embrace any humanistic practice or faith.
- Identify the unhelpful myths of aging and affirm the potential our elder years
- Harvest our own wisdom to transmit as a legacy to future generations
- Examine our past with 'life review' and use wisdom we have gained for 'life repair'
- Understand that forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves
- Create peace of mind by doing the work needed to face our own mortality
- Identify ways for us as elders to serve as mentors and healers in society
- Develop our own vision of self as an elder
- Nourish ourselves physically, emotionally, mentally, socially and spiritually
Who can benefit:
- Older adults and their families; anyone interested in conscious aging
- Seasoned adults 45 and over who wish to envision their second half of life
- All who work with older adults: clergy, social workers, hospice workers, caregivers
- Anyone interested in exploring a new paradigm of the life cycle described in Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi's book, From Age-ing to Sage-ing©
