Zen & Mindful Aging

As we or our loved ones contemplate completing our professional work, we have an opportunity to discover new ways of offering our wisdom, life experience, skills, imagination, vision, and energies through our Zen practice, in meditation, in our sangha, and in the world. We move toward genuine freedom, and the spiritual path offers more possibilities for the unfolding of our aspirations for awakening and for the liberation of all beings.

This group is intended to share thoughts, ideas, and support in applying our Zen practice and inquiry to this transition, including such retirement-related issues as leaving the workplace, finding/creating community, health and wellbeing, relationships, financial management, care of elderly parents, dealing with loss, and so on. 

We are also very interested in exploring housing alternatives that tend to connect people rather than isolate them and in promoting sharing of resources rather than individual stockpiling. 

If this prospect interests you, please join us! You can join right on this page. 

Meetings are monthly, normally on the third  Saturday of the month from 1:00-3:00 PM, hosted in member's homes by rotation.

Appamada is not just the occasional mindful thought or attentive state of mind, it’s actually a commitment to being attentive. It’s more than just a meditative state of mind, it’s more than just being mindful. It has to do with that primary ethical or moral orientation we have in life, with which we bring into being whatever activity we’re engaged in. Whether in formal meditation, in our interactions with other people, in our social concerns, or in our political choices, it’s the energetic cherishing of what we regard as good.
