Ghost Ranch| Choosing Conscious Elderhood
May 14 @ 1:00 pm - May 20 @ 4:00 pm
It is in the natural world that we can most easily remember that which is authentic and natural in ourselves, and thus gain an eagle’s eye view of our place and potential in the larger web of life. That is why, since time immemorial, at critical turning points in life, people have retreated to wilderness places to focus and intensify their inner questing and then return to their communities renewed and with new insight about how best to contribute in the next stages of their lives. That is why many individuals feeling called to prepare for and claim the role of elder have chosen to experience the Choosing Conscious Elderhood retreats over the past twenty years.
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 (55+), 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 at Ghost Ranch, a land of great beauty long-recognized as a place with strong earth energy and spiritual power—an ideal setting for supporting the inner work we will engage in.
