with Barbara Byrum


Saturday, April 29, 2017

10:00 am to 5:00 pm


We have found that seniors are yearning to engage in dialogue together. They are looking for guidance, meaning making, connection, and community to enable them to live with an open heart, regardless of the external circumstances and challenges of aging.

Join us to:

Explore unexamined, self-limiting beliefs and assumptions about aging, and learn to make better choices about how to age more consciously;


Develop the skills of self-compassion to cope more effectively with the stresses associated with aging;


Discover what has given heart and meaning to your life and how that can enrich their intentions for a healthy aging process;


Identify the regrets, sufferings, and negative self-concepts that have kept you from more fully appreciating yourself; and


Cultivate a personal roadmap for your own aging journey by deepening your spiritual life and learning to make each moment matter.
