Asheville, N.C. | Choosing Conscious Elderhood September 3 – September 9

There is a big difference between simply becoming old and aging consciously–aging with intent. This retreat, for people in or approaching their senior years (50+), provides a dynamic experiential introduction to conscious aging and the types of inner work that are important on the path toward becoming a conscious elder.

Such an elderhood is a role that is consciously chosen and grown into through preparation at all levels—physical, psychological and spiritual. We invite you to join us for an inspiring week in the beautiful mountains of western North Carolina, a magnificent setting for supporting the inner work we will engage in.

Interview with Ron Pevny and Meg Newhouse

Dorian Mintzer of Boomers and Beyond interviewed Ron Pevny and Meg Newhouse about conscious eldering. In a conversation among the three, with questions from the audience, a wealth of thought-provoking questions about aging arise.

Ron Pevny, the founder of the Center for Conscious Eldering, asks, “Why do some people age so well?”

Meg Newhouse, founder of the Life Planning Network, talks about aging as a “move to a new form of identity.”

It isn’t easy, as you’ll learn in the interview, but both speakers present a new, rich paradigm of aging.
