Conscious Aging In Camden: Workshops Explore Getting Older
Date:5/27/2013

Camden, Maine (PRWEB) May 27, 2013

Designed to encourage those in mid- to later-life to explore their consciousness to become more balanced, self-compassionate, and intentional through the process of aging, the Conscious Aging program utilizes meditations, mindfulness, envisioning, collective discussion, journaling, and sharing to invite shifts in consciousness away from self-limitation, lack, isolation, and fear--towards expansiveness, inclusiveness, wholeness, connection, and compassion.

"We are honored and excited to be assisting the Institute of Noetic Sciences in the development of this program. Intentional aging and positive, conscious approaches to end-of-life transition are a core focus of our programming," says CJ Kenna, a former social worker who holds a degree in psychology and is a co-founding director at Rock The Path. "On June 1, using current research and creative methodology sprinkled with humor and compassion, we'll be looking at ways to build a new personal view of aging, as well as looking at the concept of surrender - simple acceptance of what is - and the important role it plays in the crafting of any new idea or plan. Like the successful workshops of May 11, which dealt with developing self-compassion and revising our views on death and transition, the workshops on June 1 will introduce participants to new ideas and stimulating exercises, reserving plenty of time to share experiences, fears, and hopes in a safe, confidential and compassionate group. The community that's created during these workshops is really quite amazing, so supportive and nurturing. And of course, the coffee, tea, and pie helps bring everyone together, too!"

Since 2008, Rock The Path has been a leader in Maine in the development and facilitation of consciousness programs, offering weekend retreats and workshops for self development and personal growth. Associated with the nonprofit research and educational organization The Monroe Institute, Rock The Path extensively utilizes The Monroe Institute's Hemi-Sync© audio technology which guides users into meditative states ideal for relaxation, learning, and personal development. While not a focus in the Conscious Aging program, participants will have the opportunity to sample Hemi-Sync© and its benefits during short mindfulness segments designed to help participants relax, reflect, and become inspired.

Rock The Path will be offering four workshops in the Conscious Aging curriculum: Self Compassion on May 11 from 9 am - 12 pm; Death Makes Life Possible on May 11 from 2 pm - 5 pm; Surrender on June 1 from 9 am - 12 pm, and A New Vision of Aging on June 1 from 2 pm - 5 pm. The workshops are free and open to those aged 30 and over. Participants may attend one, all, or any of the four workshops and registration for each workshop is required.
