At This Wonderful Age

At this Wonderful Age: Discovering and Celebrating the Gift of Our Years.

Living in a culture that glorifies all things youthful, it can be difficult to know the gifts that aging brings. Age is often seen as synonymous with loss of health, status, freedom and meaning.  Increasingly however, it is a view many would dispute. Drawing on the work of various spiritual authors as well as their personal experiences of being “Forest Dwellers,” Sandy and Connie will explore the challenges and blessings of entering one’s senior years. Using humour, poetry and song, they will invite us into meaningful conversations on how we can take up the spiritual tasks that accompany advancing years. Wisdom awaits when we engage the spiritual path of aging.
