Awakening the Sage Within

This course presents a profound new vision for growing older.  Drawn directly from Schachter-Shalomi’s ground-breaking book, From Age-ing to Sage-ing and developed by Sage-ing International  (, this program teaches a new way for living the second half of our lives, sometimes called conscious aging or sage-ing.  We all have a sage within, waiting to be awakened. This highly participatory course begins this personal journey by exploring: 1) our images of aging and the qualities of a wise elder; 2) spiritual growth -- lifelong learning and self-examination; 3) life review -- harvesting one’s legacy; 4) Forgiveness work -- letting go of pain; 5) facing personal mortality; and 6) sharing our gifts of service and legacy.  This course involves participatory group learning and personal sharing, often in dyads; please enroll only if you are willing to actively participate.
