"Conscious Aging: A New Paradigm for Aging"

Monday, January 14, 2019
6:30-8:30 PM
Location: First Universalist Church at 3400 Dupont Avenue South in Minneapolis
Contact: Jill Goski

One of our founding chapter members, Karen West, will be facilitating a workshop from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at First Universalist Church at 3400 Dupont Avenue South in Minneapolis. Karen says:

"When I retired from my career counseling job in 2012, synchronicity led me to create a whole new life. It all began with the book "Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life." On the very first page, the author Richard Rohr told me that there is a "second half" of life, he told me that many people don't even know that this is true, and most exciting of all, he told me the second half is different from the first. I couldn't wait to learn more about this second half and how I could make the transition into it. Then in 2013, I discovered The Transition Network, and finally in 2013, I discovered "conscious aging," "sage-ing," and Sage-ing International. I became a Certified Sage-ing Leader and a Certified Legacy Facilitator. Now my transition is complete, and I'm loving living in the second half of my life".

You won't want to miss this workshop! Instead of just drifting into old age and worrying about the diminishment and loss it will bring, you can choose to become more conscious, more whole, and much happier in this exciting, new life stage. In his book "From Age-ing to Sage-ing," Rabbi Zalman Schachter- Shalomi provides some "tools" that will help make the last part of our lives the best part of our lives. At this event, Karen will introduce us to one of these life-changing "tools," and will give us the opportunity to learn more about this second half of life. Karen has been a teacher all her life, and believes this is the most exciting and fulfilling learning and teaching she has ever done. We really hope to see you all on January 14.
