Flourishing As You Age – Online

How to Deepen your Trust in Courage, Wisdom and Humour as you Age
6 Week Online Course with Maureen Cooper
Fridays 11.00am – 12.30pm, November 4 to December 9 (Irish time)

The Baby Boomer generation is the first generation to reach the age of sixty and feel confident that they still have plenty of good years ahead. However, as we age, and retirement looms it’s all too easy to feel that our world is shrinking. We may feel trapped and anxious and experience overwhelming feelings of loss.

However, with self-awareness we can choose a different way—we can embark on a journey of becoming who we really are. We can gather our knowledge and experience and explore how we can use it to enrich our later years and be of service to others. By resolving our past and finding contentment in our present, we can learn to face each ageing milestone as an opportunity for deeper self-knowledge and spiritual understanding.

This is the first part of a two-part course (dates TBC)

Each course is complete in itself and can be taken as a course on its own.

Maureen first came across the Buddhist teachings in 1977 as part of her search to find meaning. The wisdom and compassion that the teachings offered made more sense to her than anything else she had encountered and led her to set out on a path of study and practice that has continued to sustain her over the years.

Inspired by the clarity of and accessibility of the teachings, in 2004 Maureen set up Awareness in Action in order to share her experience of how meditation and compassion can enable us to live with more kindness, generosity and awareness. Her latest book, The Stress Workbook demonstrates how effective this can be in working with such everyday problems as stress.

Having offered workshops and trainings in a range of countries over many years, Maureen is discovering how powerful and even intimate it can be to work with groups online. Her aim is make her online workshops as open, inclusive and interesting as possible to provide an energetic learning environment.
