Wise Aging Group Starts Next Week at the BJCC

As Winter gives way to Spring, a question to consider is: “What personal seeds are you planting now that will sustain you in your ‘third act of life?’” Join us for a 5-week interactive and introspective program to explore the opportunities and challenges of growing older, and growing in wisdom. Together we will share our experiences and use mindfulness practices, journaling, meditation and artistic expression as tools for connecting to ourselves and others. This program is open to all those who identify as female age 60+.

The material from the sessions will draw from the book “Wise Aging: Living With Joy, Resilience and Spirit,” written by Rabbi Rachel Cow an and Linda Thal as well as other sources that offer positive aging, Jewish wisdom and mindfulness perspectives. The group will meet on Thursdays, January 12, 19, 26 and February 2, 16 from 10 – 11:30 am at the BJCC. The fee to register is $118. 
 
This is the second time the Wise Aging program has been offered in-person by co-facilitators Lori Dube and Rabbi Eva Bolder-Sax. Here is what one of the participants from the last group had to say about her experience:
 
“The Wise Aging class was the right thing at the right time for me—the month I celebrated a significant benchmark birthday. It was inspiring because it offered multiple avenues to explore the issues of celebrating wise aging instead of fearing it. In fact, our wise aging women group connected so well that we continue to meet on our own. I highly recommend the class and instructors Lori Dube and Rabbi Eva Sax-Bolder.”
