Come explore the intersections between spirituality and narrative, and between narrative and aging, focusing on both the unique developmental tasks of later life, and the challenges aging poses to our stories. The afternoon will introduce the sacred art of story listening and prepare participants to provide narrative care.

Thursday, November 15, 2018 — 4:00 PM EST

Join Bill Randall in considering the many respects in which aging is an inherently spiritual process—not religious necessarily, but spiritual (broadly defined). Despite prevailing perceptions of aging as a matter of inevitable decline, the challenges and changes that come with it can be experienced as Nature’s way of nudging us into the adventure of truly growing old (vs just getting old)—growing in insight, understanding, and compassion.
The presentation will be at 4 PM, followed by supper.
