Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

As we age change seems to occur in the blink of an eye. Friends who we have spent time with for years retire and leave for large chunks of time. Others become ill or infirm and can no longer ride bikes with us or go for that lovely and leisurely walk. We have friends that move permanently and are no longer available for that familiar coffee or gathering. And others die. As we age we have often left behind jobs and the communities that accompanied them.

When we were young it was different; we went to college or work where we were sure to meet people who were also looking for friendships. We were in groups with new mothers, started new jobs and joined religious institutions with new folks eager for connection. As we age it can feel like there are fewer new places to meet people. We can become overwhelmed by the losses of what felt like the fabric of our lives and aren’t sure how to begin again.

IN THIS WORKSHOP we will explore our attitudes and beliefs about aging and the impact they have on the way we live our lives. We will explore our friendship beliefs and histories and look at tools for making new friends, working through conflicts in friendship and building muscles of resilience as we come to better recognize life’s impermanence to make our lives great. We will also touch upon friendship and end of life concerns. We will use writing exercises, group discussion and there will be some lecture.
