Coming of the Sages - Wisdom Series

7 to 9 p.m., Wednesdays, January 9 and 23, February 6 and 20, March 6 and 20
With Cindy Siemers

Sage-ing® is a wisdom- and contribution-based approach to focusing on the importance of the stories, experiences and lessons accumulated throughout the journey of our lives.  Sage-ing® evolved from Native American traditions that value respect and experience and teach members of a community how to cultivate wisdom in the second half of their life and pass it on to future generations.

In the 6-session wisdom series, participants will learn how to:
•    Harvest wisdom and transmit it as a legacy to future generations.
•    Examine the myths of aging and affirm the elder years.
•    Connect with one’s inner wisdom through growth techniques of psychology and spirituality.
•    Nourish ourselves physically, emotionally, mentally, socially and spiritually.
•    Look at the past as a ‘life review’ and ‘life repair’ with the wisdom of what we know now.
•    Understand that forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves.
•    Create peace of mind by doing the legal, medical, fiscal and spiritual preparation as a way of facing one’s mortality.
•    Identify ways for Elders to serve as mentors and healers in society.
•    Develop one’s own vision of self as an Elder.

Suggested Love Offering: $10 per session
