Elders Guild:Aging in Community (Berkeley)

Aging in Community: Redefining Home in our Elder Years

As we grow in years and wisdom, can we find new meanings for "Home" in our lives? Can we find and grow homes and neighborhoods that help us not just meet our needs for affordable shelter, but also become communities where we can give and get care, compassion, relationship, support, and inspiration on our individual and collective paths?
On Sunday, May 15, join EldersGuild co-founder, Cohousing Coach Raines Cohen, in a conversation about weaving community in our lives as we grow older - not just Aging in Place, but Aging in Community.
A Certified Senior Advisor and Certified Senior Cohousing Facilitator, Raines lives with his wife Betsy Morris and over 30 neighbors at Berkeley Cohousing, and has visited over 100 of these intergenerational communities across the country. They co-lead the regional support group East Bay Cohousing, with nearly 4000 members seeking cooperative community living options in the greater Berkeley-Oakland area, as part of a Cohousing California network.
Please don't come expecting to get given a shopping list of wonderful, affordable places available for you to move in tomorrow. Do bring your dreams, visions, experiences and wishes for an engaged process of mutual discovery and exploration.
Successful aging and successful community living comes from within - starting with understanding our own needs and values and experiencing how we can better meet them together by letting go can provide a path to interdependent living... together.
