Aging Group - Death: The End of Self-Improvement

December 7th—May 3rd

Date details +
    Room: Online (Portland's Zoom)

    The Portland Aging group, Aging in Enlightened Society, is a social group for those who are experiencing aging – whether it be turning 40 or 70.

    The term ‘aging’ implies elders, and while that age group is certainly part of the focus, growing older is happening to each of us every day.  Our purpose is to promote community, connection, and inspiration among people wanting to bring their life experiences onto the path of meditation and mindfulness.

    Please contact the Aging Group Coordinator for more information or to be added to the Aging group email list for announcements of time and place for our meetings and other occasional announcements.

    The group is currently reading DEATH: The End of Self-Improvement, by Joan Tollifson, and meets online via Zoom on the first and third Monday of the month from 3 to 4:30pm. 

    Please email the Aging Group coordinator if you have questions or plan to attend, and read the book on the following schedule and notice what it brings up for you.
