Day Retreat on Aging & the Spiritual Journey

During this day of prayer and reflection, participants will explore aging as a journey of spiritual fulfillment. Transforming the story of aging restricted by ageism, we will reclaim the rich complexities, challenges, and opportunities of the aging process. As we let go of what no longer define us, there emerges space and time to listen for invitations to live more deeply from the center of our true selves. Through engaging scripture, poetry, guided meditations, and spiritual practices, we will listen to one another as we open to God’s Spirit—exploring the question: What am I being called to at this stage of the journey?

Facilitator Rev. Susan Kennard Walker, M.A., M.T.S., is a deacon in the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, serving St. Stephen and the Incarnation since 2013. Susan is a graduate of the Washington Theological Union (MTS) where she also completed the program for Spiritual Direction Studies. Since 2017, she has collaborated in creating curriculum for the Episcopal Church that addresses the intersection of aging and spirituality.
