In the spirit of ageing well

Sage-ing: New Wisdom of Ageing

A sage is defined as a soul who is wise, knowledgeable, learned, shrewd, and up to the challenges of the ages.  Possibly a person living on a higher plain rather than the view that greets you each morning in the mirror.       

Polish-born Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi has changed the face of sages as part of his personal journey to take the fears of the future, specifically getting older, head on.
   
In the process he has created an approach that has tapped into the “collected energy of the ages” rather than one single perspective. This new incarnation looks at life and ageing in a new way.  It is a spiritual practice that involves harvesting the wisdom of our lives, transmitting this as a legacy to future generations and giving back through service.

The Selwyn Institute invites you to take the first steps on the journey of Sage-ing with therapist, teacher, facilitator, writer and observer of life as well as trained Sage-ing leader David Chaloner. 

In this entertaining and interactive work-shop he will introduce Sage-ing’s core territory and topics including myths and fears of ageing; life review and repair; forgiveness; facing mortality; leaving a legacy; mentoring and service.
