How does the contemplative life – one of prayer and encountering God – shape one for wisdom and resiliency in the second half of life? Looking at wisdom and resiliency as markers for facing the beauty and pain of getting older, this course addresses aspects of aging that require an “elegant kenosis” – letting go in the midst of embracing the life that God has given. Learning through awareness of God, others, and self lays the foundation for the spiritual practices.
Last year we explored topics such as intentionality, paradox/mystery, hope, community, gratitude, forgiveness, love and generativity. This year we will build on these topics with fresh practices, using The Gift of Years by Joan Chittister as a conversational resource.
