DEEPENING INTO AGING – A SERIES
You are never too old or too young to live your dreams, inherit your authentic power, and meet the challenges and opportunities that life presents.
This, the 5th offering of Deepening into Aging, will be 4 afternoons, now two weeks apart, allowing for a more continuous experience and connection with others in the group. Those who have attended previous sessions are encouraged to return to continue the established relationships already created. Newcomers are also invited and welcomed to experience the warmth and acceptance of being in this group.
With each session, awareness evolves and perspectives change into profound wisdom and grace. The options are endless. There will be an opportunity to continue on for more sessions at the end of the 4 sessions. Sharing is voluntary and confidentiality is encouraged, as is discussion from an experiential point of view. Attendance at previous Aging sessions is not required to profit from this new series.
Participants are asked to be prepared to attend all four sessions. Space is limited so please register early.
FOCUS: AWARENESS ALLOWING EMBRACING At this Star of the Sea event, JayaLynda Cole will guide participants in a personal reflection of aging as a catalyst to deeper meaning, purpose and self-transformation, while touching on one’s divine nature. Each afternoon will be dedicated to deepening into the all-important meaningful questions that arrive as the end of life approaches. Celebrate the gift and fullness of life that aging provides. Journey with others on this path to wisdom to discover the many gifts of later life; explore experientially spiritual practices for aging well; connect with your own sense of guidance and inspiration. The benefits of being in a group is not to be overlooked. Working in dyads or triads, transparency and healing magically arise offering alternate perspectives and encouragement. We are in this together. We are one and the same - no separation. It is our perspective that influences physical, mental and spiritual health and healing. Various modes for self-expression will be possible - writing, speaking, drawing, movement, walking and of course, humour. There is no wrong or right way to growing old. Aging liberates us from our old roles and offers a choice to an authentic way of being.
TOPICS may arise from within the group and may include: challenges and gifts of being an elder, fears and struggles; false beliefs about aging; grief and loss; illness and pain; surrender; impermanence; loss of identity; living and dying consciously, befriending false identifications and past attachments, death, inquiry into that which is ageless; Love. Sessions move fluidly and spontaneously. Topics may fluctuate depending on the needs of the group members.
Celebrate your life, the gifts you have come here to manifest and to creating a more conscious, compassionate, empowering world.
