Flourishing As You Age – Online

Part 2: Deepen your Trust in Courage, Wisdom and Humour
6 Week Online Course with Maureen Cooper
Wednesdays 11am to 12.30pm, January 22 to February 26 (Irish Time)

The number of older people in the world is projected to double by 2050. Worldwide, every second, two people celebrate their sixtieth birthday. So, the possibility of a longer life is real.

This 6-week course looks at how we can learn to make the most of our longer lives. We’ll explore the opportunities of ageing, as well as the challenges.

Despite our longer life spans, ageing is still often viewed with anxiety and dismay. The ways in which society views ageing and treats older people can add to a feeling that the scope of life is shrinking. However, research shows that a deeper sense of contentment and appreciation of life often comes as we get older. With self-awareness 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.

Each week we will explore specific issues affecting older people

Session 1: The Big View
Session 2: Building Resilience
Session 3: Our Search for Meaning
Session 4: Dealing with Loss
Session 5: Working with Habits
Session 6: Becoming an Elder

Whilst this is the second part of a two-part course, each course is complete and can be taken as a course on its own.

We look forward to seeing you on-line!

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.
