We will explore the broad and deep topic of aging through a restorative practice lens. Session 1 explored practical aspects of aging and passing which often are not ready to tackle. Session 2 considered the challenges and complications of the aging process, particularly affecting family and friends i.e. health, money, rapid decline, slow decline, etc. Session 3 explored family dynamics and managing conflict when members differ on how matters should be handled. Session 4 will explore forgiveness and grief. What does forgiving others and ourselves entail? How do we make space and manage grief?
This session will explore the natural feelings and expressions of grief and the very difficult process of forgiving. Often we hold onto our hurt for extended periods of time in order to feel justified in our responses, making forgiveness a challenging notion to achieve. This space we will help identify steps to letting go and how to support others in this process.
1. Reflect on connections between aging, restorative practices, and connection
2. Engage together in communicative practices
3. Share experiences of personal practices regarding aging
