Aging as Spiritual Practice

How is aging a spiritual practice?

From the back cover of “Aging for Beginners” by Ezra Bayda:

Aging brings us to a new phase of life, inevitably marked by losses big and small – and yet this can also be a phase of renewal. Bringing a beginner’s mind to our own aging, we see we have an opportunity to devote more time to reflection and inner exploration, to dive deeply into life’s meaning and connect to the love that is the essence of our being. Amid whatever physical, psychological, or circumstantial limitations we may be experiencing is the possibility of cultivating and living increasingly from kindness and gratitude.  

This workshop is for those approaching, entering, or well within this phase of life (those over 50). During the day we’ll explore the multitude of meanings that  challenge, beguile and surprise us in our own experience of aging and its relationship to spiritual practice.
