OPT is excited to offer the Wise Aging program, a groundbreaking series of 8 workshops designed for congregants age 50+.
In our youth-oriented culture, the inevitability of our aging is lost amongst fear and denial. It is the elephant in the room! As we age, amid shifting roles, physical changes and loss, there is opportunity for discovery, resilience and joy. We will meet regularly to discuss, actively listen, share in small groups, study, journal and reflect. We will develop a deeper sense of well-being, cultivate wisdom and connect with others.
Sessions are based on expert resources and delivery developed for the Institute for Jewish Spirituality by Rabbi Rachel Cowan and Dr. Linda Thal.
Our next weekly eight-session program will take place Thursdays, September 28th – November 16th, 2017, 3:30 pm – 5:30 pm.
(The second and third week will be on Monday instead of Thursday.)
Congregants Barbara Hausman and Marc Blesoff have been trained by the Institute for Jewish Spirituality to facilitate the Wise Aging program.
