Conversation on Aging: An Open Discussion
December 10 / 7:00 PM - December 10 / 9:00 PM
Please RSVP using the link below.
Please join us for another "Conversation on Aging" with the New York Shambhala community, an opportunity to share your concerns, experiences, ideas or expertise.
Our purpose is multi-faceted:
- to learn and communicate about the many aspects of aging;
- to help identify and organize support for the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of our community as we, and our friends and family - grow older;
- to explore and share ways to view and experience our own aging from a positive and aspirational perspective, consistent with our view and path; and
- to connect and exchange with other local and international groups on aging, including the mandala-wide Aging in Shambhala steering committee
This initiative is being organized by Andrea Sherman and Cynthia Spencer.
Andrea Sherman, PhD, serves on the Mandala - Aging in Shambhala steering committee, is a gerontologist with an extensive background in Creativity and Aging, Director of Transitional Keys/a lifecyle program, and is currently in the Foundations of Buddhist Contemplative Care program. She has been active in the Shambhala Center of NY since 2008.
Cynthia Spencer is a meditation instructor, teacher, and practitioner of dharma arts including calligraphy and kado. Her interest in the support of aging and dying arises from working with friends and family members. She has been part of the Shambhala community since 1979.
