WELL-BEING  45+

This section curates some information, ideas  and links that might support our metaphysical or inner well-being as we get older.

We believe that connection to community is central for a healthy spirit. As we get older it can take more effort to leave our comfort zone and meet and work with new people. The best way to combat isolation and loneliness is to step out and share our passion and enthusiasm. We've put together a few creative suggestions but there's plenty of choice in Brighton.

Another way to stay connected is by working as a volunteer. Some of our deepest friendships and most meaningful experiences can come from working to help improve the lives of others in our community.  

With our extended life span we also might need to change our consciousness  around ageing and our mortality. This might require some  inner work and we offer a few suggestions. 

 

CREATIVE 

Creative 

As we age it is easy to slip into habitual behaviour.  Creative interactions are a great way to challenge ourselves and develop meaningful relationships. 

Music - Choirs, singing, drumming and communal music making are a wonderful ways to connect with others.

Writing - Maybe now is the time to start writing that masterpiece. A journal, blogs, a script, a novel. All things are possible.

Voluntary 

What better way is there to put your life into perspective than offering support to others. Many volunteers say they get far more out of it than they put in. 

 

Inner Work

We believe that to live well in the second half of life requires a degree of self-reflection and inner work. Here just a few possibilities :

7 Ages workshops are carefully design to support your journey in the second half of life.
