MOUNT EDEN PRESENTS

Becoming a Spiritual Elder:  Navigating Life’s Passages with Grace and Glory

How do we have a meaningful spiritual life and have a fulfilling relationship with G-d as we age? How do we deal with our own mortality and accept the losses of others we care about? How do we repair our disconnections and loss of faith in G-d that come about through life from questions and tragedies we can’t stop? In short, how do we embrace our age-ing journey with new dimensions and choices for a fuller life?  

Join us for a unique opportunity to explore your life as a sacred journey. In this first of four workshops we will address:

  • Embracing your age-ing journey

  • Examining your own mortality

  • Doing a “life repair”

  • Doing forgiveness and healing work

  • Developing a way to be a Spiritual Guide and Wisdom Keeper for others

  • Developing the positive, nurturing relationship with yourself!
