Eldering Through Relational Wisdom

Lifebridge Sanctuary in Rosendale, NY

Wild Earth, Good Work Institute, and the Conscious Eldering Network invite you…

Join us for a 3-day retreat where we will explore the role of the elder in relationship with the wisdom of all generations.

Who is this for? Elders* and all who are interested in bringing forth a future inclusive of hindsight, insight, and foresight are invited to register.

Together we will…

  • Deepening in relationship throughout the weekend
  • Create distinct roles that we play in our community and economies
  • Develop mutual respect and fair exchange
  • Explore fear, death, and dying
  • Eldering traditions from various cultures and traditions
  • Understand physical and spiritual changes in the process of aging
  • Nurture the elder within
  • Develop a mindset of inquiry together
  • Chart a future in collaboration

Day 1: Setting the context and coming together as an intergenerational community.
Day 2: Exploring Fear and Dying and the development of the elder. 
Day 3: Going forth / where do we go from here.

*What is an elder? While elders generally find themselves above the age of 50, there is no minimum age requirement to attend as an elder.
