Course Description

Our culture typically views the aging process as one of slowly declining health and reduction in mental capacity. In contrast, traditional cultures emphasise a growth in insight and experience and have always accorded increased respect as people age. This short course, while acknowledging the challenges of growing old, will create a space for the celebration of conscious aging: increased wisdom, the growth of resilience, greater appreciation of life’s lessons.

Each session will be a blend of inputs from the facilitator, group discussion and a few short writing exercises that promote reflection. There will be a ten-minute tea break in the middle of each session.
