A Deeper Path:
The Call of Aging

Retreats, Workshops, and Small Group Gatherings on the Spiritual Journey of Aging

Home: Welcome

Our Mission

An invitation to enter the Third Age of life
with meaning and purpose

Traditionally, elders have been the sages, the wise ones, the keepers of the sacred. Sadly, contemporary culture’s focus on speed and efficiency marginalizes the role of elders as emissaries of spirit. As a consequence, we often view elderhood simply as a time of diminishment.  But the “third age” can be a sacred journey when new life can thrive.

A Deeper Path’s goals are to:

  • Encourage midlife seekers to begin preparing for a deeply vibrant elderhood

  • Advance the view of aging as a spiritual practice

  • Call elders to their vocation as Blessers

  •  Promote healthy intergenerational relationships

Home: Who We Are

"People are anxious to save up financial means for old age;
they should also be anxious to prepare a spiritual means for old age…
Wisdom, maturity, tranquility do not come all of a sudden when we retire."

Upcoming Events


The Soul of Aging

The Soul of Aging is a multi-session program designed to guide us in intentional reflection as we navigate the aging process. Each session invites us to contemplate themes of aging and helps us to appreciate elderhood as an adventure rather than simply a time to be faced with dread. This series is for people who long to understand, surrender to, and be transformed by the aging process.

The Soul of Aging series is held in-person and via Zoom.
