Wise Aging is a new, groundbreaking program specifically designed to meet the social, emotional and spiritual needs of Jewish seekers entering second adulthood!
In Wise Aging, you will be guided through reflective work that enables you to come to new understandings about your life, self, values, and Jewish practices. Learning modes include text study, active listening, mindfulness meditation, exercises, reflection, and journaling. We will meet regularly to learn, share experiences and acquire skills for making changes in our lives that will lead to a deeper sense of well-being.
Sessions are based on resources developed for the Institute for Jewish Spirituality by Rabbi Rachel Cowan and Dr. Linda Thal, primarily “Wise Aging: Living with Joy, Resilience, and Spirit.”
Six Sessions, Sundays from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm:
March 5, 19, 26 April 2, 9, 16, 2017
Registration fee: $90 for members, $125 for non-members
To register, please contact Naomi Fisher: firstname.lastname@example.org. Class size is limited to 12; registration closes on March 1.
