Mindful Aging and Elder Speak are co-programs created by the Ripple Foundation to bring the wisdom of our Elders forward to each of us, in a way we can easily digest. They connect us younger generations to the life experiences of those who have waked the paths we have yet to take. Aging can seem mysterious, even scary. Mindful Aging gives us the chance to bring our own aging into focus, and the opportunity to ask for guidance and wisdom from our Elders. In a series of one hour discussions we, and Elders from our local assisted living facility, invite anyone interested to come and share thoughts, insights, questions, and life experiences with one another.
What’s next in my life? Will I be able to handle whatever comes? Is there anyone who understands what I’m going through?
Mindful Ageing offers guidance and wisdom for our life and our experiences through a series of one hour discussions with peers and elders. Everything from Dreams to Relationships to Fear and Letting Go are discussed. Each topic is seriously considered and yet laughter punctuates each topic.
Mindful Ageing is a program of The Ripple Foundation as part of Elder Speak. Here, as one Elder says, “-Peer-to-peer support is more helpful for aging people because they understand better than someone who is younger and hasn’t gone through the same experience. There is support in sharing with someone who has been through the same experience.”
