Conscious Aging

A unique program offering opportunity for spiritual, emotional, and psychological growth in support of the last third of life.

Discover a Deeper Internal Gold

The process of aging brings with it many gifts not present in earlier decades. We have opportunities to share what is profoundly meaningful to us, to harvest deep wisdom nurtured over time, and to gather in celebration of the many phases of our journey.

However, aging can also introduce a new set of challenges. We may feel anxiety about physical decline and a potential loss of independence, or apprehension about possible isolation and loneliness. Many struggle when facing the realities of death and dying.

IONS developed Conscious Aging to address these challenges and celebrate the opportunities of later life. Based on insights gained from our decade-long study of transformation and field-tested across a broad range of practitioners and settings, our program supports seniors who yearn to engage in dialogue about these issues. Through Conscious Aging, we serve those who seek meaning making, connection, and community to fortify them in later years.
