In this eight-session workshop, we will explore the perspective that aging well is about more than improving physical health and mental acuity. It involves increased spiritual and emotional growth.
A Weekly Series with Hayat Bain and Gia Miele
Aging is a part of life that contains many blessings. Yet, in our youth obsessed society, there is fear and anxiety about growing older. And there are few viable models to help people create a vision of how to make this stage of life a beautiful, joyful and purpose filled experience.
Conscious Aging is just that model, providing a lively exploration of conscious aging through inspiration, creative expression, silent contemplation and meditation, dialogue, writing, and group sharing.
It will help you:
- Embrace this stage of life and your inner sage.
- Cultivate self-compassion and authenticity.
- Learn the importance of surrender and letting go to move forward.
- Challenge roadblocks from the past, including resentments and negative beliefs.
- Create a new vision for your life, filled with vitality, passion and purpose, as well as continual growth and service to the world.
