Dear Friends,

I invite you to a workshop series called “Conscious Aging”that is truly transformative for those who are willing to discover a new view of aging.  It will give you the ways and practices you need for happiness and contentment as you age. There is a positive way and vision that can change your life!  Enjoy a relaxed setting where we share in conversations with others, enjoy inspirations for reflection from articles, music, poetry and other creative activities.

I learned so much about aging from the Conscious Aging program. I discovered some of my limiting views of aging that I could change. Now, I can move through my aging process with greater ease and comfort with less fear and anxiety. I am excited about sharing this program with you.  It has changed my view of aging from seeing the media view of aging as downward slope to an enriching time with freedom and a time to enjoy what has heart and meaning to me.

Join me this fall for a new series beginning Oct.6/16 !  Register today! Please visit Conscious Aging website for more details about the program series.

I thought that my voyage had come to its end at the last limit of my power — that the path before me was closed, that provisions were exhausted and the time come to take shelter in a silent obscurity. But I find that thy will knows no end in me. And when old words die out on the tongue, new melodies break forth from the heart; and where the old tracks are lost, new country is revealed with its wonders“.

— Rabindranath Tagore, Gitanjali

I love this quote that reveals what happens as we age if we allow our hearts to open, to deepen our spiritual awareness and to flow with creative thoughts.  There are always new thoughts, new songs, new poems, new perspectives when we let go of the ‘old tracks’ and unveil new ‘wonders’.

It is because I have been facilitating an IONS Conscious Aging” workshop series that my awareness of the qualities and opportunities that come with age have heightened.  I have been so inspired by my participants and their ability to transform and to have new views about their future.  Aging well means taking good care on all levels – mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual.  But when our spiritual self deepens by feeling a greater connection to our ‘soul’ and spirit we lose our fear of death and recognize the gifts we have received and the gifts we still have to offer to others.

This awakening to a new view of aging provides so much freedom!  Freedom to do new things, to meet new friends, and to serve others in whatever way we can.  I saw people get excited about the age and stop apologizing for being older.  With renewed vision of our self, others begin to notice our change.  Younger people notice too and are attracted to those who are happy and feeling fulfilled.

The common ground that all in the Conscious Aging group felt was that they may have changed on the outside, but inside they felt the same as when they are young!  So we all realized that when you look at someone older, they aren’t really old because their heart and soul has remained the same.

This prompted me to write a poem I’d like to share with you~

How strange it is

To be inside this old body

Laughing the same way

Crying the same way

Playing the same way

Always being the romantic

In love with being in love

Not much has changed

 

That can’t be true

Look around you

Everything has changed

Look in the mirror to see

The old face smiling back

Once brunette hair now white

Ages spots and wrinkles oh dear

So much has changed

 

How strange it is

To be inside this old body

As I have always been

But I am an elder now

With bits of wisdom to share

I have found a loving presence

That truly reveals who I am

Not much has changed   

©Jane Rosalea Booth Robertson,2016, Meaford ON   July 29,2016

Whatever age you are embrace its gifts.  Each age group has a purpose and things to offer.  Each stage is unique which new challenges and new things to learn.  Make the most of each day, each moment to bring into it peace, laughter, and love!  Remember ~ you are always beautiful inside and outside~ at any age!

Peacefully, Jane
