ABOUT THE WEBINAR
When a growing season is long enough for fruits to mature, we call it a time of ripening. Engaging our human experience of this process through the art of inner inquiry, Anderson will challenge our culture’s mind traps, the bland assumptions, myths and lies about this natural evolution that obscure our actual experience.
Then we will begin to explore the gifts reserved for age: the losses and endings that lead into the poignant, ferocious truths of maturity; how relationships change and often deepen; the secrets and subtleties of inner life at this time; and the way qualities such as generosity, wisdom and a lightness of being unfold as one develops the presence and openness of an elder. Our focus will be on posing penetrating questions to allow you to transform your perspective on aging and live into the truth and genuine grace of becoming a mature human possibility.
Based on the level of interest following this webinar Sherry may form an ongoing inquiry group to continue these explorations.
