with Andrew Achenbaum, PhD
Spirituality and Aging:
This five-week seminar addresses important issues that arise increasingly in the prime of life and beyond. Ripening while aging provides many opportunities for growth, healing, forgiving, loving, and letting go. Advancing years also bring a different set of challenges--disappointments in relationships and the workplace, more aches and pains, and the call to face one's own death. Where does the road lead? Where lies meaning in this journey? Basing respectful discussions on the instructor’s syllabus, together we will seek to grow older by creating authentic, courageous pathways for engaging with God, our selves and others.
