There is tremendous need and capacity for men to enter into their aging with deliberation and even grace, especially after having been grounded in spiritual awareness and practice. This fall series will explore men’s time of life related to aging guided by Kathleen Dowling Singh’s powerful guidebook, The Grace in Aging.
The book’s subtitle encourages readers to “Awaken as you grow older,” which also offers a template for our six-part book study and men’s group. What are the special conditions supporting transformation in the process of aging? Singh uses a variety of wisdom teachings with practice to delve deeper into the dynamics of aging. Liberation from confining habits, mindsets and beliefs are explored with accompanying ways to move more fully into acceptance and awakening.
Our gatherings will combine sharing from the book, personal and group reflection, and practical ways in which aging men can find support towards intentional aging.
