Exploring the rewards and challenges surrounding later life

We often have unchallenged views and opinions about getting older that have been absorbed from society, our families, teachers and peers. The media, entertainment and business are, to a large extent, age-phobic. Yet change is afoot, many older people are no longer prepared to sit on the settee and watch TV for 20 years. There is so much we elders can be doing for ourselves, for our communities and for the planet.

Awakening the Sage Within Free Workshops


An Introduction to Sage-ing


Explore the Awakening the Sage Within workshop from Sageing International with Randall Krause and Charlie Ivermee

Compared to folk born a hundred years ago we can expect to live 20 to 30 years longer than they did and one question that arises is how will we live those extra years. As evolving elders how might we foster wisdom, hope and resilience in the light of the difficult challenges that come with being human? How might we bring joy to ourselves and others?

In this introductory workshop we will take a look at some of the influences on how we age, from external attitudes to views that we have internalised. We will explore how we feel about ageing and take a look at the opportunities that come with ageing. We will also look at what the Awakening the Sage Within workshop offers. More details can be found at An Introduction to Sage-ing.

The workshop is freely offered and will take place via Zoom on Saturday, March 27th from 3:30pm to 5:00pm GMT, 10:30am to 12:00am CT.

Awakening the Sage Within


A workshop from Sageing International with Christine Harrop-Stein and Charlie Ivermee

As part of our internships to become a Certified Sage-ing Leader with Sage-ing International Christine and I will be freely offering the Awakening the Sage Within (ASW) workshop in June 2021.

This workshop is aimed at elders, those approaching elderhood, people working with elders and anyone wishing to explore the second half of life. As evolving elders how might we foster wisdom, hope and resilience in the light of the difficult challenges that come with being human? How might we bring joy to ourselves and others. We can learn to tap into the perspective that our decades of life offer. We can turn our experience into wisdom and our wisdom into compassion for ourselves, our communities and this beautiful earth that sustains us.
