Wise Aging with Spirit

A thoughtful, conscious approach to our aging can help this stage of our lives be more fulfilling and more joyful.If we bring awareness and intention to what is going on for us, and what may go on for us, we can uplift and more fully enjoy our daily lives.

Our aging impacts, and is impacted by, our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being. As we all know, we are integrated beings. If you are spiritually healthy, you will be less negatively impacted by challenges in the other areas. If you are doing all right physically, it can be easier to have a positive attitude –and visa versa.

Please join us for our programs to support Wise Aging. Some are designed specifically for the purpose. Others are totally applicable, and will help you develop tools for intentional living, like intuition and spiritual attitudes.

We are all going down this road! Make it a more intentional and joyful path.Improve your own well-being and increase your tools for living. One fabulous support for aging is relationships with others. Come share with other like-minded souls!

Join us for these educational and inspiring weekends!
