Transformations Spirituality Center hosts Thomas Moore for the retreat Aging with Soul
, Thursday 15 June and Friday 16 June, 2017.
"Think about the word aging. It doesn’t have to mean growing older. Like aged
wine and cheese, aging is the process of becoming mature, ripe and
interesting. You pay more for aged wine and cheese because it is more
flavorful and interesting, just like really aged humans.
old doesn’t guarantee that you will age in this sense. You have to say
yes to life’s invitations all your days, from childhood onward, and that
way you become a truly aged person. You are mature, wise,
self-possessed and prepared to share your achievement with others as an
elder and teacher. Aging can be a rewarding experience. Also, you don’t
have to see life in a straight line. Your childhood and adolescence and
early adulthood remain with you, giving you a rich and varied texture.
You can be young at heart forever.
This retreat will invite us to review our lives and see the whole cloth that
has been woven from the threads of our experience. Come for a time of
recognizing your own abiding principles. Sense how compassion,
generativity and equanimity have shifted you over time."
