When the grandmothers speak, the earth will heal. -Hopi prophecy
More women are entering their 60s, 70s, and 80s with better health, higher levels of education, greater work experience, and more resources than ever before in history. We have time and choices our mothers and grandmothers never dreamed of, and we can now ask, with poet Mary Oliver, “How do I want to live the rest of my one wild and precious life?” Each of us was born with a gift to give to the world, and as we grow older, we have an opportunity to "give back.”
Elder Women offers programs on elder women's spiritual and creative development and encourages their ongoing engagement in the world. Programs and workshops focus on spirituality, meditation, writing, vital aging, the natural world, and end of life issues. Elder Women is supported in part by a grant from the Kalliopeia Foundation.
