Our mission is to develop and sustain an inclusive community in Houston committed to mutual support and connectedness so that we can live intentionally with vitality and purpose as we age.


A Note on Carl Jung: 

His essay on aging is one of our guides.

Our History

We formed in 2018. Our genesis came from conversations between friends about the process of aging, how to find or keep a community and how to deal with the challenges of aging. We are a volunteer organization and are affiliated with The Jung Center. 

We’ve presented many excellent programs: Carl Jung’s Stages of Life; Resilience and How to Develop it; Finding Purpose as We Age; A Look at Racial Conditioning. We’ve mentored coffee groups and book studies and movie nights. Our small group meetings often form communities-—part of our mission. During Covid, we set up support groups about health and well-being and offered speakers via Zoom, which will remain a permanent platform for some of our offerings. Large events are often co-hosted with The Jung Center. 

We’d love to have you learn more about us or join us in one of our adventures.
