Institute of Noetic Sciences

Institute for Noetic Sciences LogoThe 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.  For more information about  this new IONS educational program visit:
