What we're about

The Silver Tsunami is here.   Millions of baby boomers are the new Senior Citizens.  However, in our society the old dreaded concepts about aging still exists.

In our youth-oriented society, most of us have grown up with a deep-seated fear and loathing of old age.  Growing older generally means uselessness, helplessness, wrinkled skin, and chronic illnesses. To counter this perspective, we desperately swallow our fears and pretend that 70 is the new 50, grateful when someone “compliments” us saying “you look great for your age.”  This is the societal unspoken goal in life—to look young for as long as possible.

Yet the reality is that as long as we are alive, we are constantly aging.   And, we are constantly dealing with deep-seated ageism that exists in this society.  Agism is a social issue and not an individual “problem” that we need to handle alone.   Rather, society has painted a very narrow and prejudiced perspective about what aging is about.  We are given the doom and gloom projection and not the possibility of aging with purpose and awareness. Likewise, we get no information about ways to cultivate joy which is the real secret to staying young.

Therefore, the purpose of this group is to honor the many authentic concerns we share about aging while opening to a larger perspective about aging.  Together we are exploring many assumed beliefs we buy into; often unconsciously that actually impedes our ability to be our best healthy selves.   

Since June, 2022 we have built a community of like-minded women where we both learn from each other and support one another in this stage of life. We explore serious topics with a light hearted touch.

WHO SHOULD JOIN
This is a free Zoom meetup for any woman who is interested in shining light and awareness on many aspects of aging.

WHAT TO EXPECT
Generally, in each group we will have information on a specific topic around aging. There will often be suggestions for healing activities to do to enhance your experience with these topics (always optional).

WHEN: 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month  
TIME:  3:30 PST-5:00 PST

Finding Freedom in this Impermanent World

Link visible for attendees

Life has always been uncertain. We never know what the future will bring. Yet, during the past few years, there’s been a heightened sense of uncertainty. Now we are dealing with a global pandemic, a world climate crisis, threats to civil liberties and human decency all over the globe and much more. Things really feel out of control.

This distress is affecting us all, not just personally in our own lives but also affecting the global psyche producing a society on edge.

But this is not new. This dilemma of certainty has always been affecting humanity. Approximately 2500 years ago, The Buddha wrestled with the same questions asking. “How in the face of impermanence do we find peace, freedom and happiness? “

We might say “How do I live in a world of uncertainty and keep myself centered? “

How do I maintain my equanimity without detaching, without denial, and without overriding?

How do I live with this aging process and deal well with all the changes I have to face?

How do I cultivate vulnerability? Are there principles to follow? Strategies to adhere to? What are the steps toward change?

Join us on Wednesday February 1st , 2023 from 5-6:30 PM PST for this important conversation.
