Aging with Soul A Paradigm Shift

No matter how old—or young—you are, there’s still time to transform the way you think about aging. Getting older can be a soul-changing experience, a lifelong journey of discovery in which you move toward greater fulfillment and self-realization.

This weekend, we look at aging in a whole new light, and discover it can be so much more than merely piling up the years and the physical changes they bring. Thomas Moore’s paradigm-shifting teachings, based on his forthcoming book, Aging with Soul, are enhanced by writer and NPR commentator Nancy Slonim Aronie, who offers evocative writing prompts and shares poetry by Peggy Freydberg, who began writing poems at age 90. Learn to celebrate aging while staying young in mind, imagination, and spirit, as you

  • Recognize aging as a process through which you become more emotionally intelligent, sensitive, wiser, and more creative
  • Find new meaning and soul growth in past experiences and relationships
  • Use writing to find and honor your inner voice and the truth of your own story
  • Explore your unique nature and destiny
  • Accept aging as a natural part of life, to be embraced all along, not fought.

This multigenerational workshop is for everyone; bring your parents or adult children. When you cultivate both the spirit of youth and the advantages of getting older, you benefit in every aspect of your life.

Recommended reading Nancy Slonim Aronie, Writing from the Heart: Tapping the Power of Your Inner Voice, and Laurie David (ed.), Poems from the Pond: 107 Years of Words and Wisdom, the Writings of Peggy Freydberg.
