with Lois Huey-Heck, Jim Kalnin, Tim and Donna Scorer
September 18-23, 2016
Let’s ensure that the decades following the years of paid work and home-making are a time of creativity, engagement, mentoring, and compassionate accompaniment. After all, that could be a third of our lives! Let’s build a culture in which aging people learn what it means to grow into eldership, a time of life in which experience and wisdom become a resource and gift for community. As a group of people 55 and older, we will spend time together listening, remembering, exploring, practising, and creating as we become the kind of community that will make this kind of difference in our kind of world.
