Carol Tabak, Linda Korth, & Kathleen Shugar
Trained by the Institute for Jewish Spirituality
Introducing a new, groundbreaking program specifically designed to explore the social, emotional and spiritual needs that help us live life with a deeper sense of meaning.
Caring Community has launched classes based on materials developed by the Institute for Jewish Spirituality. The creators of this program recognize that a full life is not just filled with constant doing but is an opportunity for each of us to integrate our life experiences as we journey toward wisdom and self-acceptance, a journey we take together. Learning modes include text study, active listening, mindfulness meditation, exercises, reflection, and journaling. Each class meets regularly to learn, share experiences and acquire skills for making changes in our lives that will lead to a deeper sense of well-being. Sessions are based on resources by Rabbi Rachel Cowan and Dr. Linda Thal, primarily their book Wise Aging: Living with Joy Resilience and Spirit.

Topics include:
• what is special about this life stage
• life review
• becoming one’s authentic self
• developing a positive relationship to our changing bodies
• revitalizing and nourishing healthy relationships
• cultivating qualities of soul
• practicing forgiveness
• learning to live with loss
• change and death
• cultivating wisdom
• leaving a legacy
