Event Description

How to Transform the Anxiety of Ageing into the Joy of Becoming: Flourishing as We Age workshop with Maureen Cooper Part 3

PART 3: Flourishing as We Age

The Baby Boomer generation is the first generation to reach the age of sixty and feel confident that they still have plenty of good years ahead. However, the pandemic has been a strong reminder of the vulnerability of ageing, with older people much more likely to suffer severe symptoms. On top of this, there is a view that it has brought ageism out into the open, as older people are blamed for lockdowns and all that goes with them. It’s an interesting time to be getting older.

As we age and retirement looms it’s all too easy to feel that our world is shrinking. We may feel trapped and anxious and experience overwhelming feelings of loss. However, with self-awareness we can choose a different way—we can embark on a journey of becoming who we really are. We can gather our knowledge and experience, and explore how we can use it to enrich our later years and be of service to others. By resolving our past and finding contentment in our present, we can learn to face each ageing milestone as an opportunity for deeper self-knowledge and personal growth.

This 2-hour workshop will be recorded and you can use the ticket function to pre-purchase the recording before the event. This will be useful for colleagues who are not able to attend the event live and also for those who attend the event live and want to watch again.

This workshop will be hosted on the Zoom meeting platform where we will use our camera and microphones to interact with each other as a group.

To support practitioners in this time of extraordinary circumstances we are offering access to this group for a self-select fee.

The self-select fee is a radical inclusion policy to open learning for all colleagues. The guide price for this event is £20.00, however, we appreciate that income varies greatly in different locations and circumstances. Please contribute what you can to help us maintain inclusive professional training.
