The Wise Aging Program

OSH 526 / Non Credit
Course taught in: English

Course Description: Are you wondering “What’s next?” or “Is this all there is for me?” Our culture marginalizes us as we age.  This is a ground-breaking program specifically designed to meet the social, emotional and spiritual needs of seekers entering second adulthood.  In these six interactive weeks you will be guided through reflective work to explore themes such as the value of life-review, investigating the deep wisdom that comes with experience, our relationship to our bodies, and honing the spiritual tools that can help us live with greater gratitude and equanimity.  OLLI@UM is one of the first in the country to offer this national program led, in this instance by a trained IJS facilitator.  Note:  This course is based on resources developed for the Institute of Jewish Spirituality and the book, Wise Aging: Living With Joy, Resilience and Spirit.  It will be INTERFAITH oriented to welcome ALL DENOMINATIONS. Participation is highly encouraged.  Previous participants are welcome.
