Location: Private home in Boca Point - please contact host for additional information
Restricted to members and their guests
Members and Guests: $30


Are you wondering "What's next?" or "Is this all there is for me?" Our culture marginalizes us as we age. It pressures us to disguise the visible signs of aging, to retreat to the edges of life to make room for younger people, and to resort to behaviors that diminish the wisdom and power we have spent a lifetime accumulating. Sage-ing is a model for aging more deliberately, more joyfully, and more compassionately. Join us to learn how you can redefine this incredible period in your life.

TTN member, Deborah Briggs is a certified Sage-ing leader from Sage-ing International. She has a degree in organizational psychology from Columbia University.

$30pp (pay via PayPal or Venmo to or by check   
Will be in a private home (address to be given upon registration) limited parking (car-pooling highly recommended).
