Meeting Format

This experiential workshop will help you begin to develop a conscious and compassionate relationship with aging. With increased clarity and peace of mind, you can move forward and enjoy this stage of life more fully. Loss and growth are part of aging. With Focusing we can grieve the former, enjoy the latter, and use both as fuel to move forward. This is an introduction to this deep, healing and rewarding work.

A few features of this offering:

Recent research and writing on the subject will be presented to broaden participants' understanding.

Guided Focusing exercises to get to know your inner landscape, listen to your unique inner wisdom, and shift your relationship with aging.

Sharing your own wisdom and hearing the wisdom of others.

This workshop will be experiential, with time for group and partner practice.


Who is this for?

This workshop is for people who want to live more consciously and have basic Focusing skills. Come with an open mind and heart.


Future Offering

Besides being a stand-alone workshop, this workshop is also an introduction to a 6-Month Program, "Aging Consciously: Finding Meaning, Spiritual Growth, Fulfillment and Peace of Mind while Rekindling Old Dreams and Letting New Ones Emerge." In this program we'll explore in more depth what aging means to each of us, celebrate our accomplishments, make peace with our challenges and losses, and open our hearts to our dreams and hopes. All of this is informed by the implicit wisdom we access through Focusing.

The 6-Month Group will begin later this year.
