Elders or Sages - what are the best words for an Australian context?
The Sage-ing Guild
The mission of the Sage-ing Guild is to help change our society’s current belief system from aging to sage-ing—that is, from simply becoming old to aging consciously.
The Guild believes that the wisdom and gifts of conscious elders is urgently needed in today’s world, and sage-ing supports the development of such elders.
Sage-ing is both a philosophy and a set of psychological and spiritual practices, originally developed by Zalman Schachter Shalomi, that support living with passion, purpose, inner growth and commitment to service as we age.
The Guild trains and supports a network of Sage-ing Leaders who transmit the wisdom of sage-ing through workshops, elder circles, and other educational and personal growth programs.
Their free six-month Associate Membership provides access to valuable resources for individuals wanting to do their own conscious aging work while encouraging others to do likewise.
The Sage-ing Guild also conducts a robust public education program using a wide variety of social media, and is committed to collaborating with other like-minded organizations.
