“You are not old enough to teach Sage-ing” somebody told me the other day. “This is exactly the point” I said, “you want to know how to be in the second half of your life before or when you enter it, not towards the end of it.”
If you want to discover the mysteries and wisdom of the second half of life join the Joy of Sage-ing seminar offered here in Boulder starting June 10th. Sage-ing is a word pointing to your level of awareness rather than your chronological age. We have had people ranging from 32 to 82 years old and everyone received what they needed to receive and learn. Just remember, in our tradition a “Zaken” is a wise person, a sage. It used to be cool to be a Zaken or Zekena.
We are so fortunate now in Boulder, to be able to experience the Spiritual Eldering program based on Reb Zalman’s book “From Age-ing to Sage-ing” and called Joy of Sage-ing – Acquiring a Heart of Wisdom.
So search in your heart and see if you want to change the way you perceive your growing older, embrace life and live your elder years more consciously, more joyfully, and more compassionately.
This program is appropriate for all who want to gain deep meaning in the aging process, people of all ages, professionals working with elders, and clergy for their own eldering and for those they serve.
The class runs seven Sundays, 4:30 – 6:30, beginning June 10, 2012. To find out about location and price email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-440-1024 or visit www.center-for-spiritual-friendship.org
The program is led by Rabbi Ori Har DiGennaro and is co-sponsored by Center for Spiritual Friendship, Haver Rabbinical Council, Boulder JCC’s Maimonedes Wellness Center and Fully Alive Medicine – A Holistic Wellness Center.
