The Institute of Noetic Sciences Conscious Aging Program has been developed for seniors who are ready to embrace the final stage of their journey as a great opportunity for spiritual, emotional and psychological growth. It has been created over four years and field-tested across a broad range of practitioners and settings. The program consists of a self-study publication Conscious Aging: Group Process Guidelines for Facilitators, which comes with a companion workbook for participants. It consists of an eight session workshop series designed to shift participants’ consciousness from self-limitation, lack, isolation, and fear toward expansiveness, inclusiveness, wholeness, connection, and compassion.
Session Plans can be combined and conducted as an eight-lesson series, as a smaller series of several sessions, or presented individually – each session has been developed to stand alone as a complete program. The session topics include: Introduction to Conscious Aging, Self-Compassion, Forgiveness, Life Review, Transformative Practices, Death Makes Life Possible, Surrender – Letting Go, Creating a New Vision of Aging.
