RECLAIMING ELDERHOOD
A 4-WEEK SERIES ON REDISCOVERY AND ACTIVATION OF OUR PRECIOUS ELDERHOOD

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.

Mondays 3:30 pm – 5 pm
This workshop includes an individual 30-minute consultation, scheduled personally.

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.

Restoring Land and Soul

Restoring Land and Soul

There’s a place in the southwestern corner of Montana where the river weaves a fine Spiga chain through the wetland and willowed prairies at the ankles of a soaring stretch of Rocky Mountains. The mountains run east to west – an orientation adopted by precious few...

Wolf Stories

Yesterday, we went to a place in Yellowstone National Park where wolves live. We weren’t right there with them, but close enough to stand with other people with high powered spotting scopes to watch from afar. The Junction Butte pack has a good batch of new pups....

Earth Day on the Cusp of COVID

Earth Day on the Cusp of COVID

Thinking on it, I find it hard to see how one can love the earth but not fellow human beings. And also, it seems incongruous that one could love humanity and exact sins of degradation against nature. Whether wings and feathers or hands and fingers, we share the same...

Equinox – The Balance Point

Equinox – The Balance Point

In the Reiki tradition, there’s a graphic symbol for harmony – for balance. Sei hei ki. To me, it looks like a dancer, or maybe something winged, and I’ve heard that to draw it well requires open, relaxed and sweeping gestures. People who know and practice Reiki use...

Weariness & Renewal

Today the temperature around our home hovers near 0°. "Can super cold weather make me tired?" I ask. We talk about it. It can. Sometimes. That's why it's good to sleep in a cool room. It’s also why trees and fields and waterways need winter. To rest well. Whatever the...

Look to the Tops of Trees – a Solstice Offering

These are not easy days. Here in the northern hemisphere, nearing winter solstice, we’re deep in the cold and dark. Add to that the count – ten months of COVID-19. Like the dark, the pandemic is here with us. So are other circumstances – embers of rumination and...

COVID in the House

COVID in the House

Well. We’ve got it. We who, since mid-March, have essentially cloistered – masked, sanitized, distanced. We even disinfect our keys and doorknobs. How in the world did this virus find us? It did. Our symptoms are quite light. We’ll make it fine. But, like you, we have...

Call & Response

Call & Response

In a functioning ecology, the dialogue between wound and medicine is ongoing; there is a call and response always happening.  Francis Weller Do chickens or the eggs come first? They do.   Am I living or dying? You are.  So, it goes and goes. Call and response. The...
