Conscious Eldering Through Relational Wisdom Retreat

Wild Earth, Good Work Institute, SageArts, and Conscious Elders Network are collaborating on a three-day retreat at Lifebridge Sanctuary in Rosendale, from April 26 to 28, that will address questions concerning conscious elderhood. The program will help participants to appreciate the different stages of life, understand elders' roles in their communities, develop mutual respect in relationships, and explore how elderhood is viewed in different cultures.

"Those called to live into a fulfilling and generative elderhood must consciously recognize and claim the power and nobility of this life stage for ourselves," says Joseph Jastrab of Conscious Elders Network and author of Sacred Manhood, Sacred Earth: A Quest into the Wilderness of a Man's Heart. "And we must do so in good relation to our own past and to the younger generations we create life with."

Retreat-goers will take part in both large-group and small-group dialogue facilitated by Joseph Jastrab of Conscious Elders Network, Erica Dorn of Good Work Institute, and David Brownstein of Wild Earth. As an intergenerational retreat, people of all ages are welcome to join a conversation about the value of elders and how we can all—young, old, and in between—relate to one another. There will also be activities related to music, nature, movement, and poetry. People are encouraged to sign up in pairs or groups that mix elders and non-elders.

Conscious Eldering Through Relational Wisdom: An Intergenerational Retreat will take place from Thursday, April 26 to Saturday, April 28 at Lifebridge Sanctuary in Rosendale. It includes food, accommodations, and programming. Contact Wild Earth for more information. (845) 256-9830.
