“Beyond Care” with Wendy Lustbader
Registration is Open!
Our anniversary event with Wendy Lustbader “Beyond Care: Exploring the Glorious Adventure of the Spirit,” has been rescheduled from its original April date to February 2, 2016. Wendy was one of the first presenters for the Center in its beginning days, and it’s an honor to be able to have her come back. Her workshop reflects her deep experience in the field of aging and depicts the potential for growth and self-discovery in later life, showing the many ways the soul enlarges when we move through explorations that may have seemed daunting earlier in life. As an example, Carter Catlett Williams’ quest as an elder to excavate a grief from childhood will be presented through excerpts from recorded interviews and from portions of her book, Glorious Adventure. Grief and vulnerability can become doorways to spiritual well-being, but we need to embark on this adventure with an open heart and a readiness for discovery. Use this link
