Wise-Aging Group Session hosted at Adath Jeshurun

November 20, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

“We’re all getting older. How we face aging – that’s what we’re thinking about. How we take on this stage of our lives with wisdom and spirit. How we move past what doesn’t fit anymore and welcome what does.”

Congregation Adath Jeshurun and Jewish Family and Career Services, with financial support from the Jewish Heritage Fund for Excellence, are partnering to pilot Wise-Aging peer groups. Each group will meet regularly over several months to talk and learn and share and explore together what it means to grow older with intention and to live life fully in the process.

The work is based on groups led by Rabbi Rachel Cowan and Dr. Linda Thal of the Institute for Jewish Spirituality, and we will use their book, Wise Aging: Living with Joy, Resilience, and Spirit. Together using the text, mindfulness meditation, cultivation of spiritual qualities, gentle movement and mindful listening, we will develop our ability to look toward the future with resilience, meaning and joy.

Join us today at Adath Jeshurun, 2401 Woodbourne Avenue, Louisville, KY 40205. For more information contact Deborah Slosberg at 458-5359 or dslosberg@adathjeshurun.com.
