Announcing a new event for Aging In Community - SF Bay Area!

What: Elders Guild meeting: pioneering a new culture for aging

When: Thursday, January 10, 6:00 PM

Where: Berkeley UU Fellowship Hall; Click the link below for details!

Who should come: Have you and your contemporaries been thinking about your role as an elder and the way we will age together, support one another and help rescue the future? Engage Self-Awareness tools to lead the Aging Process. All ages welcome.

Why: I went to the first meeting in the new Elder Guild series in November and was very impressed with the people and the tools, plus the process. It has a number of parallels to the Senior Cohousing "Study Group" curriculum and Beacon Hill Village model.

Event Description:

Join us in a journey of self-discovery as we pioneer new territory, piloting a project to lead in aging... in community, and beyond. This is a new program developed by Barry Barkan of the Live Oak Institute.

Are You Ready to Make the Transition From Baby Boomer to Elder Boomer?
Have you and your contemporaries been thinking about your role as an elder and the way we will age together, support one another and help rescue the future?

The Elders Guild Vision and Mission

Our Vision
....is a world in which powerful and conscious elders join together in common purpose to bring healing, joy and connection to our lives, our families, our communities and our world.

Our Mission
....is to create the communities where we re-imagine our old age, look after one another and embody the wisdom that will enable us to help heal the future.

The Elders Guild seeks to unleash the virtually unprecedented resource of a planetary network of conscious and responsible elders by focusing on organizing ourselves in three crucial areas of our individual and collective development: Community, Wisdom, and Championing the Future.
