There is no set of instructions for getting older—for the shifts in our social and support networks, the feeling of invisibility, the angst of dealing with aging parents, the mixed signals of entering retirement, or the surprising turns in our relationships with ourselves, our partners, friends, and colleagues. On the other hand, those currently in this stage can count themselves as part of an extraordinary, history-making generation—pioneers in understanding and making the most of this “third chapter” of life. Many who find themselves in this group will be blessed with unprecedented healthy years ahead, full of potential for learning and growth. This 9-session experience, created by the Institute for Jewish Spirituality, is designed for those who are 55 and older aimed at giving Jewish adults a meaningful place to open up conversations about what it means to get older and to create new understandings about life so we can live with spirit, resilience and joy. Topics are explored using mindfulness and contemplative practices to deepen the inner and outer journeys of participants. 

Dates:  Jan 11, 25, Feb 1, 8, 22, Mar 1, 8, 15, 22

Mindful Mornings: Meditation with Rabbi Jenny Solomon

Mindfulness meditation is a practice designed to support and sustain our Jewish lives and the fulfillment of our Jewish values. In mindfulness meditation we train our capacity to pay attention to what is happening on the inside. This helps us become aware of the patterns and habits that run our lives. We begin to realize that these patterns and habits may serve our goals, desires, and purposes – but often they do not. We start to realize that there actually is a “pause button” built into our system. With mindfulness training, we can learn how to pause before reacting. This course offers the fundamental principles of Jewish mindfulness meditation.  With guidance, learning, and opportunities for practice – this course is designed to help participants create the foundation for a meditation practice that can provide us an inner refuge or sanctuary that we can take with us wherever we go, so that no matter the circumstances we may find ourselves in, no matter how stressful and strenuous our responsibilities may become, we can always discern a subtle quality of awareness hovering in the backdrop and permeating our experience of body, heart, mind and world.  This spiritual practice is intended to help us be more present, more connected, and more awakened to what really matters.  If you have extensive practice in meditation or you are a total beginner, all are welcome.
