“Old age is not a gift given to everyone. 

If you are given this gift, what will you do with it?” 

-Adrienne Kernan

Aging is a time of asking questions.  Questions that can wake us up, surprise us out of complacency and lead to deep inquiry.  Aging can be a time of discovery, joyful self expression, contentment and peace.  It is also the journey of 10,000 surprises,  challenging us to open to grace.  It is a time to go within and do the inner work that allows us to access our deep courage and wisdom.

This website is dedicated to the courageous elders, who consciously embrace their aging journey and are willing to ask the deep questions, letting go of a need for certainty and quick answers. 

The core of the work here emanates from 7 Graces of Aging:  Dancing From The Inside Out.  You will find the 7 Graces Framework and supporting materials on the site.   May it be for you a source of inspiration and discovery.  Resources in the form of organizations, books, articles and quotes are also included for the purpose of inspiration that opens the heart.

“We are here to walk each other home.”

-Ram Dass
