Live Online with Joan Borysenko
Gathering #1: Loving Your Legacy
Thursdays, Sep 22, Sep 29, Oct 6, 2022

1-3 pm ET / noon-2pm CT / 11 am-1 pm MT / 10 am-noon PT

Aging gracefully is a delicate dance involving mindful acceptance, loving self-reflection and effective tools to grow resilience and optimism…  along with a whole lot of humor. Come experience the dharma  (truth) of aging through a shared journey of spiritual, heartfelt, and practical wisdom for us savvy, sassy, and simply splendid women of a certain age.

Our Golden Age is a time for deepening what blesses you, and ditching what stresses you, for being with family and friends, and for learning new things. It’s a time for finding meaning, purpose and pleasure.

Most of all, the Golden Age is a time for embracing your inner Goddess, and for taking a fresh look at the glorious legacy of YOUR life. More than honors, degrees or accomplishments, your most important legacy is that of the heart – your caring, humor and life wisdom that touches others during the course of your lifetime.

During our 3-part program, you’ll be nurtured in a community of like-hearted women as you uncover your deepest values, gain appreciation of lessons learned, and discover what a truly great masterpiece you are! Through a delicious mix of presentations, contemplation, laughter, and intimate conversation in small Zoom breakout groups, you will clarify the legacy you’ll leave behind (one day)—a treasure trove of meaning, wisdom, and humor.

Together, we’ll co-create a community of deepening that nourishes, and inspires you to be a gorgeous, glorious, Golden Goddess!

My good friend, Gilah Rosner, will be joining us during this program, and we have some meaningful exploration and fun planned for you.

Uncovering Your Deepest Values

In Part One (September 22), “Uncovering Your Deepest Values”, we’ll uncover the core life values that make you, you. We’ll use the best of Positive Psychology to mine your strongest strengths and principles and learn how to utilize them to become your best self.

The goal of values clarification is to illuminate what you consider personally meaningful and important, and then, to discern how well you are currently living a life in line with what you value. Values clarification answers the question, “What do you want your life to stand for?”

In Part Two (September 29), “Appreciation of Lessons Learned”, we’ll acknowledge our ancestors, and how they have shaped our identities and influenced the legacies we will leave. Some of the lessons learned from family are cherished, while others are best ignored. We’ll explore the notion of families as schools of forgiveness, and in so doing, we’ll help our ancestors along their spiritual path and help ourselves in our process.

We’ll take time to honor all we’ve learned, to forgive ourselves for what we have not yet mastered, and to give thanks for everyone who has helped us along our way. Shining a light on our lessons learned, illuminates not only our past, but our present and our future.

Appreciation of Lessons Learned

Loving Your Legacy

You’ve loved and lost, you’ve laughed and cried, you’ve succeeded and failed, and through all that was, and all there’s yet to be, your beautiful legacy is being created. In Part Three (October 6), we’ll conclude with, “Loving Your Legacy” as we identify and celebrate some of the truly great gems in our legacy treasure trove and explore a few ideas for redirecting and refining our legacies a bit more.

So, join me, my gal pal, Gilah and other gorgeous Golden Goddesses like you, for a program of sharing, caring and connection.

Your inner goddess will be dancing for joy!

One aspect of embracing our inner Golden Goddess is remembering that we are created in the divine image. You truly embody the divine feminine, so by your very nature you are strong, gentle, compassionate, understanding, protective and nurturing.

Aging brings the opportunity to begin focusing more on the inner life, and creating more space for personal growth, spiritual development and perhaps, a more graceful way of being in the world.

The presentation portions of the program will be recorded, and you will receive journaling questions, along with the practical tools and some bonus sacred practices to honor your Golden Goddess.

Together, let’s write a new story of how glorious aging can be. Register for only $297.
