Being with Aging: An Exploration

with Elvia Garcia & Patti Larson

June 17th—July 15th

Date details +

    In this series of conversations, we are exploring the challenges and opportunities of aging in a society of imbalances:  between safety and freedom, between long life and quality of life; and between giving and receiving care. Through videos, readings and conversations, we are examining the experiences of aging in our community.  Too often old age is seen as a diagnosis rather than as an opportunity for human dignity and possibilities.

    Join us June 17  for the first of five sessions on Creating a Caring Culture of Kindness.  No one should have the burden of care alone. We should share the opportunities and possibilities and work together for a light and spacious way of being true. Rejoicing is a state of appreciation and of great dignity in the midst of how it turned out. In this five-week session, we will examine taking care or letting others care for us. Suggested readings will come from Sakyong Mipham’s The Shambhala Principle and Circles of Care by Ann Cason.

     You are welcome to jump in whenever you can, this is an on-going conversation.  Please join us.

    Suggested donation $5.00 - $10.00 per session
