From Age-ing to Sage-ing
“From Age-ing to Sage-ing” is a programme exploring life changes, age-ing, sage-ing and eldering. It offers an alternative view of and approach to late life development, one that focuses on harvesting wisdom, vitality and making an ongoing contribution in the world. From Age-ing to Sage-ing
For many of us “old age” and life changes have negative associations such as infirmity, loss of identity and purposelessness. An alternative view of late life development is sage-ing, a process that enables people to become harvesters of their wisdom, physically vital and socially engaged contributors to the world.
This programme offers an exploration of topics such as: attitudes and cultural messages about aging, life review, the unlived life, eldering and mortality. Using input from the book “From Age-ing to Sage-ing – A Revolutionary Approach to Growing Older” by Zalman Schachter-Shalomi & Ronald S. Miller, we will engage as a group in personal reflection, journaling, guided visualization, music and silence
The book (above) is available from the Book Depository and can also be ordered in local bookshops. Copies are available in the Sligo library.
