Let’s Experience: Undoing Ageism, Honoring Loss
Explore the losses and gains of aging in this interactive ‘Undoing Ageism, Honoring Loss’ workshop with expert guides from Old School. Register now!
Designed for people of all ages and from all walks of life, this workshop led by the co-founders of Old School explores the losses and gains associated with aging. At every age, we experience loss: the culmination of first-time experiences, missed opportunities, reduced abilities, and the passing of loved ones. The ageism that is prevalent in our culture exacerbates these losses and turns the natural process of aging into a personal failure and a disease. We will start our time together by recognizing the cultural context we live in, most notably the stigma associated with aging and how it is related to stigma associated with loss. From there, we will be with our age-related losses, giving them voice and space. Finally, we will uncover the capacity and opportunities that grieving our losses provides. This workshop will be highly interactive and include breakout rooms, quiet contemplations, sharing amongst the larger group, and more. Our aim is to explore some very big ideas in a very practical way.
