Spiritual Eldering Program – “From Age-ing to Sage-ing”

Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi left us a legacy of spiritual practices and tools to support our soul’s evolution and relationship with the Divine. In his book, “From Age-ing to Sage-ing,” he invited us to shift our perspective around aging, to embrace the ‘second half of life’ as a time of creativity, continued growth, healing and refining our own legacy.

The ALEPH Sage-ing® Mentorship Program was formed to train those who would bring his work to the greater community.

Boulder is privileged to have two amazing Sage-ing® Mentors, Rabbi Ori Har DiGennaro and Rosemary Lohndorf, who have teamed up to offer this work to all who wish to grow older consciously and intentionally.

It’s never too early to start your sage-ing!

For many of us, this is the most significant spiritual practice in which we engage – one which we intend to carry on for many long, productive years. We hope you will join this growing community!

Here’s how:
