‘Sage-ing Conference’ starts Oct. 11
The International Sage-ing® Conference, “Wisdom Speaks: The Art of Aging,” will be held Oct. 11 to 14, at Lake Junaluska Conference and Retreat Center.
The Sage-ing® Guild invites people of age to expand inner growth, develop spirituality, offer service to community and cultivate the value of elders as mentors and wise counsel in communities.
Online pre-registration is required and registration is closed Oct. 10. Visit www.sage-ingguild.org/2012conference. Attendees may come for a day, or the entire conference.
Speaker Christina Baldwin is an author, World Café Facilitator and workshop presenter, for the conference.
“We believe elders are a global force with power to re-direct and influence our societies,” said Baldwin. “Our inner work prepares us to take soulful action with generational urgency, and to serve the communities and spheres of influence in which we stand.”
Bob Atchley is a teacher, author, singer-songwriter and plenary speaker for the conference.
“Becoming a spiritual elder is an evolutionary process through which spiritual development is nurtured and an individual learns what is needed to prepare for and take up the role of spiritual elder and to be a sage,” said Atchley. “Being a spiritual elder is not a destination where we arrive, but rather a capacity that we can become in any moment.”
