Exploring Elderhood

2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The Secrets of Trees, led by Sarah West. The beautiful grove trees that we see standing as quiet sentinels are really very busy. We will explore what our trees are doing all year- how they can sense and respond to their surroundings and how they can help us save the planet. Our gathering will finish with refreshments.

This program meets on the second Friday of each month at 2PM in the USG Assembly Room (from September through June.) Its purpose is to celebrate the path, with emphasis on the spiritual path, of all who are aging (that’s all of us!) but especially those who consider themselves Elders (or wannabe Elders) and is open USG members, guest and visitors with no minimum age.

Each month a team of Exploring Elderhood members prepare and present a program on a relevant topic and after initial presentation there is generally a time for small group discussions and then a reconvening to share experiences. Each session is also followed by a potluck TGIF with wine and cheese, tea and crumpets and such. At all times our goal is to accentuate the positive and have fun together as we share our journeys into the second act of life! And we do! Find this month’s plan in the Upcoming Events section of the website.
