Wise Aging:

Living with Joy, Resilience and Spirit
 

facilitated by Rabbi Eva Sax-Bolder

 

Teach us to use all of our days

That we may attain a heart of wisdom.

Psalms 90:12

 
 

The "Wise Aging" sessions will address many of the opportunities and challenges we are facing in our 50's, 60's, 70's and later. We will explore these issues in the context of contemporary and core Jewish texts as well as contemplative practices.

There will be minimal outside reading and some writing involved, as most of our 'work' will be done in our group. Some of the themes that may be covered include:

  • Exploring this stage of Life; How do we view being an ‘Elder’
  • Cultivating Nourishing Relationships
  • Cultivating Spiritual Qualities for Well-Being: Mussar
  • Forgiveness and Constructive Criticism
  • Living with Loss and Finding Light
  • Legacy and Stewardship
  • I am my Body; I am not my Body
     

Who: open to age 50+ of all faiths and no-faith traditions.

When:  8 Thursday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m.

October 19, November 16, December 14, January 25,

February 15, March 15, April 19, May 10

           

Where: Brotherhood Synagogue, Gramercy Park South.
