The Stamina Prescription March 7, 1–3:30 p.m.

Who knew it would take so much stamina to age well? Aging can be full of surprises that can knock us off balance. We need to be “ springy on our feet” physically, mentally and emotionally. In this workshop we will play with the notion that  we have“muscles” we can develop to live with an open heart and joyful mind.  Participants will work together to identify specific, individualized strengths you can build in practical ways.  Presenter Carol Rinehart is founder of STAMINA (Strength Training For Aging MINdfully Always). $29

Who’s In Your Tribe? Mapping Your Circle of Care

March 14, 1–3:30 p.m.

Whether you are a “solo-ager” or a grandparent surrounded by the ideal family, the question is, “Who will be there for
me when I have needs?” We have the opportunity to be both receivers and givers. We’ll take a broad snapshot of the people with various roles in your Circle of Care. $29

I LEFT FEELING RECHARGED, MORE OPEN, KINDER.
You nurtured each and every one of us, and all of us together.                                         
I realized that there is such a great need for STAMINA to be a bigger part of our lives.
— STAMINA Workshop Participant

 

In a life of constant change balance is a verb, not a noun.

What practices will help you keep your balance even as life constantly changes?

Each moment of our lives falls like a seed upon the seedbed we have become.

When you imagine yourself in your last decades of life, how would you most like to be?

Have a wonderful time enriching your ground.

How about making the way you age an act of love and service?

Be ready to receive what life presents.

It is possible . . . 

to make the last part of our lives the most satisfying yet
