The Soul of Aging


Exploring the Most Creative Time of Life


Julia Burger



How are we going to complete this great work of art called “Self”? 

Will it be the best of times?

Will it be the age of wisdom or the age of foolishness?

Will it be a season of light or a season of darkness?


“The Soul of Aging” offers a vital challenge to Western concepts of aging.  In our time together, we will explore aging as a sacred rite of passage through creative conversations that will stimulate writing, drawing and other forms of creativity. This timely presentation is suitable for persons of all ages.

A truly enlightening experience awaits you!
