We hold a vision of a culture that honors elders, where they are initiated into the roles of Elderhood and are valued for their contributions towards a thriving future for all. Further, we envision readily available, regenerative, multicultural and multi-generational programs and community rituals that honor, celebrate and support elders as they travel the many pathways to elderhood.
To realize the vision of an elder-honoring society, we are growing an alliance of organizations and individuals who are offering meaningful and conscious passageways to elderhood. This Alliance, working together, will support each other to develop needed programming and to outreach to a wider audience making passageways to elderhood more accessible for all.
Next Steps - Please join us.
We are organizing a series of joint activities to launch the Passageways to Elderhood Alliance and support the visibility and outreach of all participating organizations.
Webinar series on Passageways to Elderhood in the New Year 2024 that highlights partner organizations and individuals offering Elder Passageways.
Expand the PEAL membership. To build a more inclusive community we will continue to outreach to more Elder groups and grow our database.
A working team of Alliance members will work to define Pathways to Elderhood Alliance structures and agreements. Your input is essential.
