Topic People who come for spiritual guidance have received from our culture a gloomy picture of aging. The spiritual director has the opportunity to model and communicate a different vision. Aging is a call to adventure, a time for new kinds of spiritual growth and roles as elder in family, church and society. We will reflect on the vision of Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi and share our own experiences of companioning persons through the journey into elderhood.
