Seasons and Cycles: Changing the Aging Paradigm

Few myths and assumptions in our collective consciousness are as ambiguous and puzzling as the ones on aging. We spent time, money and energy to extend our time on Earth. Getting older is a good thing. And we spend equal amounts of time, money and energy to turn back time. The message: Getting old is not such a good thing.

Anyone born anytime in the 20th century has been imprinted by the message of the old paradigm. As transitionists between old and new, we have been challenging the old myths of every kind from the time we were babies. We are doing it more and more with aging.

It requires moving beyond a rant about the outer messages (seeking insight, we don't continually criticize the blind). It takes honesty, humor and compassion to examine your own myths and then discard the things you don't really believe or choose. The reward is living your own life, creatively, on your own terms ... all of your life. That is one of the goals of this workshop.

It is time that we no longer look wistfully at cultures who have celebrated and honored their elders and assume that our own will never change. It IS changing. We are part of that change.

***Since we begin to age as soon as we are born, this workshop will be helpful to anyone at any age.

Synthesis: The Next Step

Synthesis is he deep healing of the illusionary wound of Separation, from parts of ourselves, from each other, from the planet, and from Source.

Now is the time for taking the skills, knowledge, legacies of wisdom and our intuition, and fusing them with our planet Earth. This evening will offer some thoughts to support this healing intention.

"Once awake and committed, we become caretakers of the new vision for our Earth. In order to stay poised in the chaos, we need to be both still and skilled. That vision asks us to become practical mystics whose inspirations are from the heavens and whose feet are on the ground." ~Gloria
