Ageing and Ageism – seeing AGE through the integral lense

Getting older is inevitable as long as we are alive. How do we manage this ongoing process? How do we feel about it in ourselves and regarding others? Do we see it as a series of losses or can we also see the huge gain which comes to us with the years of lived experience?

How does our society, our culture address the later stages of life? Is it inevitable that older people are seen and managed in the way we see today? Is there another way to care and be cared for?

How can we co-create our life actively – and not only older years – instead of following the blueprints of our culture like sheep to the slaughterhouse? What is needed from us and others so as to gain a broader view on our personal and collective stories?

These and many other questions will be discussed on this site, videos and articles posted which we and our collaborators write or find online or offline. We don’t intend to give any conclusions or recipes, but encourage you to explore your own life, your desires, your purpose and how you can go on in your very best way. We want to be there with you, support you, answer your questions, invite you into a dialog, create a movement for a life worth living.
