An Exploration of Becoming an Elder

An 8-class course researched & developed by Institute of Noetic Sciences

As we begin to experience the changes and challenges that arise in the experiences of mid- to later-life, we have the opportunity to deepen our understanding of ourselves, each other and the world around us. Approaching the process of aging with consciousness and compassion offers the invitation to become more balanced and intentional through these life transitions.

The Conscious Aging program engages meditation, mindfulness, envisioning, collective discussion, and reflective journaling to cultivate shifts in consciousness — away from self-limitation, lack, isolation, and fear— towards expansiveness, inclusiveness, wholeness, and connection. In this safe and supportive container, we bring respectful, mindful attention and dialogue to this process of becoming Elders.

Session topics: Self-compassion, Forgiveness, Life Review, Transformative Practices, Death Makes Life Possible, Surrender / Letting Go, and Creating a New Vision of Aging.
