WORKSHOP: SEASONS AND CYCLES: THE CHANGING PARADIGM ON AGING


  • St Francis Prayer Center 477 Grogan Road Stoneville, NC, 27048 United States (map)

WE BEGIN TO AGE AS SOON AS WE ARE BORN.  FROM THE FIRST CYCLE OF OUR LIVES WE ARE   ENCOURAGED TO GROW AND MATURE    BUT AT SOME ARBITRARY POINT IN TIME THE WORD “MATURE”  TOO OFTEN BEGINS TO TAKE ON NEW AND LESS POSITIVE CONNOTATIONS. FEW MYTHS AND ASSUMPTIONS IN OUR COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS ARE AS AMBIGUOUS, PUZZLING AND OFTEN AS UNCHALLENGED AS THE ONES ON AGING.
    WE SPENT TIME, MONEY AND ENERGY TO EXTEND OUR TIME ON EARTH (THE MESSAGE: GETTING OLDER IS A GOOD THING.)  WE SPEND EQUAL AMOUNTS OF TIME, MONEY AND ENERGY TO TURN TIME BACK (THE MESSAGE: GETTING OLD IS NOT SUCH A GOOD THING.)
      WHEN DO YOU BEGIN TO THINK YOU WERE OR WILL BE OFFICIALLY OLD? 40? 50? 60 PLUS?   ARE INTERNALIZED ATTITUDES ABOUT AGING SETTING YOU UP FOR LIMITING YOUR POSSIBILITIES?   HOW DO YOU FEEL BOUT YOUR OWN MORTALITY AND IS THE FEAR OF YOUR OWN DEATH CREATING DREAD OF THE PASSING YEARS? WHAT PIECE OF THE ILLUSION ARE YOU WILLING TO EXPLODE?
        WE WILL EXAMINE OUR PERSONAL MYTHS AND RELEASE THOSE THAT ARE LIMITING AND DEADENING TO THE SPIRIT AND REDEFINE OUR INTENTION TO LIVE FULLY EVERY SINGLE MOMENT OF LIFE.  THIS WORKSHOP IS DESIGNED TO OFFER TO ANY AGE SOME SPECIFIC TECHNIQUES AND TOOLS FOR CONSCIOUS AGING AS WELL   AN OPPORTUNITY FOR THE RICHNESS OF SHARED WISDOM.
