We very much hope that the pandemic has waned sufficiently by next Fall that we are able to again share conscious eldering with you in person at the beautiful, inspiring retreat centers we use.  We currently have  the following programs scheduled and will, of course, do everything possible to create a safe environment for us to be together.

Aiming High

September 12 @ 4:00 pm - September 16 @ 1:30 pm

As we approach and move through the later chapters of our lives, we have choices that make a big difference in our experience of this unique period of life. Do we view this time of our lives as being primarily defined by diminishment, loss and disengagement, or by continual growth, passion and service grounded in a strong sense of purpose?

This highly experiential and interactive retreat is for those who feel called to reach beyond their comfort zones and self inflicted limitations to look for opportunities that guide them to live into the life they want. Together we will explore and experience:

• the importance and power of purpose, and how to find and live with purpose as the compass by which we choose to develop our depth, integrity and meaning

• the essential role of passion in providing the dynamic energy that empowers our sense of purpose, and strategies for calling forth the energy of our passion

• intentionality: the dynamic process by which we aim for that which is truly important to us, and how we keep our intentionality alive amid the distractions, fears, and disempowering messages from without and within

• other practices that support growth and continual unfolding in the elder chapters of our one precious life

We invite you to give yourself the gift of unhurried time, strong community, an atmosphere of sacred space, skilled guidance, and reflective time in the beautiful gardens and forested hills of EarthRise to help envision what it can be like to grow elder rather than just older by aiming high.
