Exploring the skills of eldership using art, poetry, literature, story-telling, self-reflection, and yoga to tap undiscovered regions of the mind, body & soul.
The upcoming September 2018 workshop will focus on concrete skills of eldership. Using these skills we will address some of the anxieties and worries we face in this ever-changing world.
In a fun and creative atmosphere, participants create with clay, engaging in play as a way to reach feelings often hard to explain in words. The workshop uses art, yoga, poetry, literature, and story-telling to reach undiscovered regions of the mind, body and soul – and to explore how we can continue to be an active participant and guide in our communities.
Join this retreat meant for awareness seekers eager to embrace the richness and difficulties of life and learn how we can continue to contribute to our societies with Eldership – at any age!
The idea and skill of “eldership” provides a guidepost for yearning for consciousness in these turbulent times. In this seven-day residential workshop participants will explore eldership as an attitude we can learn and practice at any age – though often we are pushed, sometimes against our will, to learning eldership through the many ups and downs we experience through life and with the benefit of time and perspective.
This workshop is for:
1 For awareness seekers of all ages; coming together to share and hone their skills in eldership;
2 For providers and professionals working in the field of human services;
3 For people of any age desiring a life of meaning with an eldership-informed awareness; and
4 For those who are searching for mysteries and wonder that lie within & beyond everyday life.
This is the second of four retreat workshops exploring eldership. This workshop is open to awareness seekers eager to embrace the richness and difficulties of life. Attendance at previous retreats is not necessary.
