Aging and Spirituality

Event Date: 
October 30, 2015 - 2:00pm
Recent gerontology research has revealed the underdeveloped potential in our maturing years (50+). Of these, spirituality (inner growth) has been identified as an undeveloped resource. In fact, maturing years have the possibility of being a time of unparalleled inner growth. This presentation will deal with this potential and its implications for ethical decision making in our later years.
 
Location: 95 St. Joseph Street, East Door, Room 101. Admission is free and all are welcome.
