Published in 1995, Zalman Schachter-Shalomi’s From Age-ing to Sage-ing was key in instigating the contemporary movement for “conscious ageing.” In contrast to the cultural view of ageing as decline, “Reb Zalman” re-envisioned elderhood as a time of spiritual growth, personal fulfillment, and social contribution. Examining “the art of life completion,” he popularized such notions as “spiritual eldering,” “life harvesting,” and the “eternity factor” – the panoramic outlook that can come with advanced years – and he extolled the role that elders might play in healing, forgiveness, mentoring, consciousness expansion, and ecological awareness. Join two members of the steering committee of The Jung Center’s Community for Conscious Aging as they explore this seminal compendium of imagination, observation and wisdom.
Required Reading: From Age-ing to Sage-ing, Zalman Schachter-Shalomi
