Event Details

Cost: Sliding Scale $75 – 200. Code AD4D18.

All individuals who are 50+ are welcome!

By the time we have lived 50+ years, our hearts have been broken, perhaps more than once. Part of our task as elders is to heal the wounds of the past and to come to peace with unresolved feelings. This daylong will be a sampler of practices and teachings to help us in our healing journey.

We will practice loving kindness and compassion for ourselves, as well as equanimity for all that we cannot control. We will recognize where true joy lies and learn ways to strengthen gratitude. We will forgive ourselves and others. We will learn to begin again. Healing the heart is key to enjoying old age.

Seniors (65+ with limited income) are invited to attend this day for $45.
