Wise Aging Cohort #3
Wise Aging is a 5 session internet seminar for women considering what life looks like after the intense rabbinic career, after retiring from the active rabbinate.
Communities in your area might be offering Wise Aging seminars but this one is for you and you alone. We rabbis know how significant it is to find a safe place to talk, to let our hair down,to open our hearts. When considering the next steps, opening up to the women who have followed a similar sacred path is a great opportunity for learning, support and re-engagement.
Consider Letting Go of titles and institutions; consider letting go of ‘that young image of ourselves’; consider letting go of rhythm, routine and specific people. Accept that challenges and joys will be in this stage, as they have been in our lives so far. Open to new kinds of learning and relationships. Change happens; let’s talk about it together!
Before the webinar begins please purchase the impactful and inspiring book, Wise Aging: Living with Joy, Resilience and Spirit by Rabbi Rachel Cowan and Dr. Linda Thal (Behrman2015). The book will be our guide however, our group energy and experience will make it ‘real’ together.
The webinar will be facilitated by Rabbi Karen Fox. Karen is retired from Wilshire Boulevard Temple, is a licensed psychotherapist (LMFT in CA) and is experiencing these issues on a daily basis. She’s looking forward to Aging Wisely: Exclusively for Women Rabbis of a Certain Stage. She’ll guide the webinar using Zoom Technology, through the WRN.
