Choosing Conscious Elderhood at Ghost Ranch, New Mexico
October 6-12, 2019

Does the idea of spending a week envisioning purpose, passion and growth in your later life chapters stir something in you?  Join us for this retreat, for people 50 and up, an opportunity to learn and experience powerful practices that support your journey toward a conscious elderhood. Together we will experientially explore the four pillars of conscious aging: belief, release, purpose, and community, as we engage sharing councils; life review work; exploration of legacy; vision clarification and intention-setting; ceremony; and a day of solitude on the land.  Participant evaluations of our 14 previous retreats at Ghost Ranch have consistently been filled with appreciation for the luxury of unhurried time, strong community, skilled guidance and natural beauty to help envision what it can be like to grow elder rather than just older. Ron Pevny, Director of the Center for Conscious Eldering and Anne Wennhold, established leader of conscious aging support groups in the New York area will facilitate the event.

The cost of this retreat is $1,645, and includes all meals for six days, six nights lodging, tuition, meeting facility, and conversation fee. For more information and registration details, please visit  For questions, please contact or 970-247-7943Download the information flyer.
