New Meetup: Elders' Guild community meeting: Conscious Aging for the Greater Good

From: Raines C.

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

What: Elders' Guild community meeting: Conscious Aging for the Greater Good

When: August 17,[masked]:30 PM (previous attendees can come at 2)

Where: Berkeley JCC; Click the link below for details!

Meetup Description: After being out of town or otherwise occupied for the last several gatherings of The Elders' Guild, I finally made it to one again in July. I'm very impressed with how the meetings have evolved and the format adjusted to provide action-oriented planning and breakout groups, not just lecture and partnered assessment/development. These can be a great resource for creating community (very much a pre-requisite for successful senior/elder cohousing, or local "Beacon Hill Village" organizing) and addressing the issues of aging head-on:both the opportunities and challenges. -- Raines P.S. If anyone's interested in helping host these in the North Bay, SF, Peninsula or South Bay, get in touch.

Dear friend,
You are invited to the next gathering of the Elders' Guild community on
Sunday, August 17, at the JCC of the East Bay, 1414 Walnut Street in
Berkeley. The special welcome for newcomers begins at 1:30; the regular
gathering is from 2 to 4 pm.

Do you see yourself as an engaging, dynamic and creative elder who wants
to contribute to a better future for everyone but does not know how?

Do you care passionately about creating an arena in our culture for
elders? voices and elders? wisdom to the benefit of all?

Do you care deeply about your future and the well-being of future
generations but do not know what you can do to make it better?

Do you as an elder want to see elders regain their place as advisers to
and shapers of a future to the benefit of all?

Are you yearning for a community of earnest elders committed to a better
future for all grandchildren?

Does the slogan "Conscious aging for the Greater Good" speak to your heart
and tweak your curiosity?

If you find yourself excited by even one of these questions, then you are
ready for the ELDERS? GUILD , a change agency of elders working
collaboratively to address this issue.

At the August 17 gathering, you will join a discussion of community
building, wisdom paths, or championing the future. You will also get to
discuss a question from the Elders' Guild Self Assessment Inventory. Light
refreshments wil be served, and donations are welcome.

Bring your friends.

for the Elders' Guild,

Shoshana Dembitz
