Conscious Ageing: Enjoying the Gifts of Growing Older
Public Talk with Don Handrick
Wednesday 24 October, 18.30-20:00. All welcome.
Life can be quite challenging as we age, and society as a whole offers a poor road map for the last leg of our journey. But as we proceed through this latter phase of our lives, unique and profound opportunities for spiritual growth and development can be revealed and we can find a renewed sense of purpose and meaning in life. In this session, we will examine how all of us, regardless of our age, can come to appreciate the value and benefits of growing older with grace.
Don Handrick is a graduate of the first Masters Program of Buddhist Studies, the FPMT’s seven-year study program inspired by the traditional geshe studies at the great Gelugpa monastic universities.
