TRANSITION INTO LATER LIFE
Saturday March 7th 2015
Sue Brayne and Jane Saunderson
Journalist John Simpson says ‘Sixty is the new middle age.’ Is this true?
Certainly we are living longer, and many of us have greater affluence and better health than ever before. We also have more choice about how we spend our time. However this, in a society that has lost its spiritual moorings, can bring confusion, questions around identity, relationship difficulties, and crisis of meaning.
This one-day workshop is an opportunity to come together to talk about issues that really matter as we enter our aging process. It is open to anyone who wants to deepen their understanding of themselves and enter more consciously into later life.
Sue is a psychotherapist and the author of The D-Word: Talking about Dying and Sex, Meaning and the Menopause. She is also a workshop leader specialising in spirituality, aging, and end-of-life issues.
Jane as well as being a psychotherapist and teacher of the Alexander Technique, facilitates silent retreats. She is particularly interested in how we draw on and integrate insights from different methods and faith traditions to help us face ourselves and navigate times of crisis and transition in our lives.
