Conscious Aging Workshops—
IONS has created a guide for group process facilitators, community group leaders/volunteers and practitioners to use to set up, conduct and follow through on Conscious Aging Workshops in their local senior centers, community groups and assisted living facilities.
We are no longer accepting applications for volunteers to pilot test this guide. Thank you to everyone who applied!
Information about when this guide will be available for the public will be posted here when it is available.
We are no longer accepting applications to pilot test the guide. If you have other questions about Conscious Aging Workshops, please contact Kathleen Erickson-Freeman at Kfreeman@noetic.org.
Workshop Desired Outcomes
The desired outcomes of the Conscious Aging workshop program are to:
Explore unexamined, self-limiting beliefs, stereotypes and assumptions about aging and make better, more conscious choices about our worldviews on aging;
Develop self-compassion to cope more effectively with change, worry, and stresses associated with aging;
Discover and reflect on what has given heart and meaning to our lives and how that informs our intentions for our aging process;
Enhance connection and reduce isolation from others and the web of life by understanding our shared humanity in the aging process;
- Reduce fear and increase acceptance in the presence of death and dying for ourselves and for our loved ones.
