APRIL 29 – MAY 20
This intimate four-week inquiry is focused on the re-discovery, reclamation, and activation of Elderhood. Even as you may secretly know there are great boons to growing older, the society around you has other messages. Come to this series to be better acquainted with the territory of Elderhood – to fortify yourself with the causeless joy and peace of mind right here in the middle of your years. Most fundamentally, our shared inquiry will support the opportunity to construct reliable understandings of the wild possibilities of wisdom and peace in a too frequently wacky world.
WEEK 1 TRANSCEND AND INCLUDE
April 29th, 3:30 pm – 5 pm
Despite our uniqueness, we’ve all walked lots of similar terrain from birth to here. Reviewing those transits reveals ways to see anew where you’ve been, and to use that understanding to navigate the inevitable unknown of here-forward.
WEEK 2 CUSP
May 6th, 3:30 pm – 5 pm
Considering midlife, its ‘crises,’ its triumphs and its necessity when it comes to Elderhood. Expanding the details of your personal map for the time you spent in midlife. What worked, what didn’t and what, in particular, keeps paying personal dividends.
WEEK 3 ON NOT BELIEVING EVERYTHING YOU’VE BEEN TOLD
May 13th, 3:30 pm – 5 pm
About getting older – about Elderhood. Situating your experience and the map of your personal territory in the realities of life today. Identifying what Elderhood means to you.
WEEK 4 THE TAKEAWAYS
May 20th, 3:30 pm – 5 pm
What does Elderhood look like? What does it mean for an everyday life? Fortifying the main line to your Inner Elder so your own Elderhood makes sense. Leave the series with reliable ways for connecting and listening to the wisdom that’s always there.

This is our friend, Janice Gould. She died with pancreatic cancer on June 28 of this year. She'd turned 70 on April 1. Too soon gone, and no less pure a blessing to the people and other beings who knew her. Janice lived Full Ecology. She walked the curve of this...read more
One of the things that seems especially characteristic of people is our capacity for self-reflection. It's a byproduct of being able to think. We can participate in our lives and observe ourselves and our circumstances at the same time. It's a super handy skill. When...read more
We've been in the back country. Hiking to a few mountain tops. Resting in the valleys in between. Funny how time in the wilderness can fit in the category of vacation - meaning something like leave everyday life behind. Go for the escape.Take a break from the...read more
There is a guiding principle from ancient Hinduism – neti neti – not this, not that. We’ve really grown fond of this ancient method of inquiry. Like Hindu sages have suggested for thousands of years, it can be a reliable prompt for freeing ourselves from traps of the...read more
What can you tell from a hydrangea in full bloom? Maybe something about beauty - something about reliability in the big middle of uncertainty. Maybe something about hanging in there - about stepping out of the way of your own magnificence. Since, there it is, whether...read more
If you're on our mailing list, you've been seeing initial word of two retreats we're pulling together. One in mid September in Yellowstone country - a weekend. And another a full week in Guanajuato, Mexico next February. But why retreats? And this...read more
In 1905, management of U.S. forest reserves was transferred from the General Land Office of the Interior Department to the Bureau of Forestry, and thereafter named the United States Forest Service. Some of the most beautiful and precious of these lands are tended by...read more
Full Ecology can best be found in the times and spaces that on most days you tend not even to see. Sort of like the Chinese ancients observed long ago when they wrote only fish cannot know water. There are circumstances sustaining human life that none of us tends to...read more
