Aging as a Spiritual Practice book group, led by Darlene Batchelder, Wednesdays, beginning September 23, 7-8p

Aging as a Spiritual Practice by Lewis Richmond “offers an inner road map for aging, acknowledging the fear, anger, and sorrow many people experience when they must confront the indignities of their aging bodies and the unknowns associated with mortality , as well as explaining the four key stages of aging: waking up, coming to terms, letting go and appreciation. Regardless of whether you are enjoying growing old, hating it, or in denial, each chapter is filled with relatable anecdotes. Guided meditations and contemplative reflections help us to see that while we can’t escape life’s essential problems, we can change our understanding about them and enjoy the process.”

In our group we will share our responses to what we have read and, if the group chooses, take time for prayer and mutual support.
