On Thursday, October 6, 2011, from 11 am to 12 pm, I will give an invited presentation, “Spiritual Opportunities in the Second Half of Life,” at the Haber Room of Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston.
Following is a description of the program.
The possibilities for spiritual growth abound if you have the eyes to see them. In the second half of life new opportunities for coming alive spiritually, opportunities that were not available at earlier stages of development, present themselves in abundance.
This presentation will invite you to explore the unique circumstances of the second half of your own life in a reflective, meditative, and contemplative way to seek, to discover, to unearth, and to realize these possibilities.
In doing so you will experience an enhancement and deepening of your spirituality and so continue to live your life to the full.
By further developing and deepening a contemplative spirit you will begin to realize that your spiritual life grows not in spite of the unique challenges that you face in the second half of life, but because of those challenges.
Sponsoring the presentation is MGH Senior HealthWISE. MGH Senior HealthWISE is a program of the MGH Center for Community Health Improvement (CCHI) and the MGH Geriatric Medicine Unit.
The program’s mission is to enhance the health and well-being of older adults in the neighborhoods that surround MGH. This is achieved through education, support and community programming.
