How to Find the Spiritual Riches that Come in the Final Stage of Life

Old age is not a time of death: it is a phase of life. On The Spiritual Elder, you will gain a new understanding of old age, based on Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi's joy-filled work at the Spiritual Eldering Project. His work reveals that the final period of life can be just as pleasurable—just as full of significant moments—as every other stage of our mortal journey. Old age, he teaches, is an opportunity to find satisfaction that we will never again experience. Now he shares life-affirming wisdom that has brought a renewed sense of optimism and meaning into the lives of seniors from all faiths and backgrounds. Join him to learn more about:

  • The theory and practice of spiritual eldering—how it helps not only seniors, but their families and friends as well
  • A simple exercise to resolve old fears and anxieties
  • The elder “harvest”—turning past sorrows into present joy
  • Leaving the most valuable legacy of all (which requires only a paper and pencil)

The Spiritual Elder is for seniors, their families, and care-givers-anyone interested in learning new ways of making each day of life a unique and fulfilling experience.
