Aging is a dynamic natural process. It not only includes the losses and heartbreak often associated with changing conditions but also the opportunity to cultivate deep insights and wisdom. Change, too, is a dynamic natural process. To recognize and acknowledge the challenges associated with change (at any age) brings us face-to-face with the truth of impermanence, suffering and non-self. To know and see such truths cognitively is one thing. To directly experience and live with them is another. In this six-week series of classes on “The Dhamma of Aging”, participants will explore questions about the nature of wisdom and compassion as it relates to the ebb & flow of their own real-world daily life issues of aging.
The course content is designed to address the richness and diversity that is our shared human experience and will include instruction, guided compassion techniques, breathing and contemplative practices and inquiry, and meditation exercises.
“The Dhamma of Aging” is being offered as a six week series, with progressive lessons and sequential instruction.
