Gather the Elders 2020: Our Stories, Our Lives
January 24, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm| $20.00
Gather the Elders offers a rich and meaningful way to view aging, build deeper connections to ourselves and others, and experience the power of speaking together in Circle dialogue. Each year, the Gathering hosts thought-provoking speakers followed by facilitated dialogue Circles that encourage participants to connect to their own wisdom and share it with others.
This year’s Gather the Elders features two distinguished presenters who will lead participants on an exploration of the stories we tell about our lives, and how they empower us.
Penelope Starr is the founder of Odyssey Storytelling, a monthly storytelling series in Tucson, and author of “The Radical Act of Community Storytelling: Empowering Voices in Uncensored Events.”
Kathleen Roberts is a longtime certified personal coach and educator on person growth topics who advises elders to “think of your life as the Art that you are continually creating.”
Cost of the event is $20 at the door, and includes a full hot breakfast (doors open at 8:30 for breakfast).
Gather the Elders is for people who are past childhood and adulthood, and who want to explore the gifts and opportunities that elderhood may hold. We hope you’ll join us on this Wisdom Journey!
