“The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected.”  ― Robert Frost

Join us for this 6 week class on mindful aging and explore ways to grow in wisdom and compassion as we journey through late life.  

Let’s explore together what we, in “the afternoon” now know, and “what the morning,” as Robert Frost wrote, “never suspected.”    

Each week, we’ll delve into topics on aging – the theory and research behind older adult health and well-being-- and learn how mindfulness and self-compassion practices offer not only refuge and heart on our late life travels, but also healing and resilience, as well as opportunities for growth. 

Our class will meet for 6 weeks on Thursday morning from 10:00AM - 11:45 AM beginning September 20th until October 25th.  Each weekly session will include learning and discussion, guided mindfulness and self-compassion practices tailored to the weekly topic, along with time for community building and “break out” sessions of small groups.
