“These programs offer an antidote to conventional thinking about aging by challenging and aiding us to ‘become the change we want to see in the world.”

STAMINA programs make a place for people to ask questions, voice concerns safely and uncover strengths they haven’t recognized. They come away with new ideas, new friends, and faith in their own resilience for meeting the unknowns ahead.

No one will be kept from STAMINA programs for financial reasons:  sliding scale or scholarships or barter can be arranged.

Individual Counseling, Spiritual Guidance, Bereavement Support (Sliding Scale $40 - $75)

STAMINA Workshops and Retreats Customized to Meet the Goals of the Sponsoring Group (Half Day Workshops $60; Full Day Workshops $100, negotiation possible)

Topic include

aging creatively and consciously

planning for deep aging

creating circles of care

living with cancer and chronic illness

living into our dying

life after loss


 Although STAMINA programs are based in the Northampton area, special arrangements can easily be made for programs in other locations.  Fee plus expenses to be negotiated. Please contact for more details.  


. . . Just wanting to let you know how powerful the workshop is right now, as I find my way back to a life of more joy and connection! I had no idea what my family’s story is and how it has impacted me but I do now!
