Becoming a Wise Elder

About us

During this interactive workshop we will explore a way of living more consciously, more joyfully and more authentically during the Second Half of Life. Through Sage-ingwe uncover the blessings that comprise the rich tapestry of our lives, and we transmit the wisdom of a lifetime of learning to heal and nurture our loved ones, our world, and ourselves.

The workshop is not specific to any religious tradition and will enhance the spiritual maturity of all. Sage-ingR is based on the book: From Age-ing to Sage-ing: A Profound New Vision of Growing Older by Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and Ronald Miller.


We will:

  • Examine the myths of aging and affirm our elder years

  • Harvest our wisdom and transmit it as a legacy to future generations

  • Look at the past as a ‘life review’ and ‘life repair’ with the wisdom we have now

  • Understand that forgiveness is a gift we give ourselves

  • Create peace of mind by doing the work needed to embrace our mortality

  • Identify ways for elders to serve as mentors and healers in society

  • Develop our own vision of self as a Wise Elder

  • Nourish ourselves spiritually, emotionally, mentally, physically and socially

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with basic goodness in an environment of people who share a vision for a better society. Wimberly

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
