Description

THE ELDERHOOD JOURNEY | Tuesday, July 24 9:00am-3:30pm



July 24th: Inward Journey

“Within us all there exists a second huge and timeless life” -Rilke

Down below our incessant need to DO, we find in the latter stages of life, a deep need to just BE. The Tasks of elderhood are different than other stages of life; the questions we carry are also different and include reflections about time, relationships, the sacred, befriending death, a longing to relate to nature anew, a yearning to recover what was missing in the earlier stages, i.e., the natural world and the soul, and a process for personal transformations throughout life.

  • Each session will be limited to 25 participants.
  • At each session, we will have a morning spent exclusively in the Elderhood program, then we will be joined by a group of young adults for lunch and we will host an intergenerational experience in the afternoon.
  • We are offering each session at a sliding scale: $50, $75 or $100. You choose what you pay.
  • Both sessions will be led by Carolyn Toben and Mike McLeod.
  • Depending on participant feedback, we may offer an extended exploration of the Elderhood Journey during the Fall or Winter months.
