Getting Older is Not for Sissies: Finding Wisdom and Grace as We Age (Part II)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As we enter the final third of life, are there tools and practices that can help us find ways to not only survive but thrive? How do we cultivate the strength and resilience we need so that we experience grace and joy as we age? Can Jewish wisdom help illuminate the path? Through study, exercises, and discussion we will touch on issues such as forgiveness, loss and change, relationships and legacy, and see why mindfulness meditation and the cultivation of spiritual qualities can be so helpful.
Participants may choose to participate in either one or both sessions.
