JFS: Wise Aging Group (Sample Session)
October 14 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
One event on October 21, 2021 at 3:00 pm
Facilitated by Fabianna Laby, PsyD. This group will meet twice a month, for two hour-long sessions, starting in late October 2021 and ending in June 2022.
There is no set of instructions for getting older—for the shifts in our social and support networks, the feeling of invisibility, the angst of dealing with aging parents, the mixed signals of entering retirement, or the surprising turns in our relationships with ourselves, our partners, friends, and colleagues. On the other hand, those of us currently in this stage can count ourselves as part of an extraordinary, history-making generation—pioneers in understanding and making the most of this “third chapter” of life. Many of us will be blessed with unprecedented healthy years ahead, full of potential for learning and growth.
The Wise Aging program is designed to give Jewish adults 55 and older spiritual resources while opening up conversations about what it means not just to get older but to age wisely. Together we will create space in our hearts and new understandings about life so we can live with spirit, resilience, and joy.
Free sample sessions, choose one that works for you, and the date and time of the group will be determined after the sample sessions:
Thursday, October 14 from 6:30-8:30PM
Thursday, October 21 from 3:00-5:00PM
