Aging with Wisdom and Joy

In this highly interactive eight-week course we explore and challenge beliefs about aging. The course draws from the insights of current authors and experts in conscious aging and elderhood, and we learn from each other's experience. This is done through presentation, personal reflection, and group discussion. We cover self-compassion, forgiveness, surrender, and more. This is for pre- and early retirees, mid-agers, and seniors who want to live more fully with open hearts, acceptance, peace, purpose and optimism. This course, from The Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), uses a required workbook which will be available at the first class for $35.
