Conscious Aging: Seven Keys to Awakening with Purpose and Joy as You Age with David Chernikoff
When wisely understood, the change inherent in the aging process becomes stepping-stones to the actualization of our best human qualities. In this program, David Chernikoff will distill lessons from across contemplative traditions to invite listeners to embrace seven essential elements of conscious living.
These elements culminate in wise elderhood–a state celebrated by indigenous cultures around the world, yet largely unacknowledged in contemporary Western society. For those of us who aspire to live fully and to love well as we age, this program will help empower you to personally thrive and to contribute with ever greater clarity and purpose.
In this program, you'll discover how to:
- Embrace the mystery
- Choose a vision
- Cultivate intuitive wisdom
- Commit to inner work
- Suffer effectively
- Serve from the heart
- Celebrate the journey
