Mountain Shadows Presbyterian Church will host a workshop on Thursday, Sept. 19, aimed at helping people understand aging and the impact it has on the body, intellect and emotions. Reaching 60, and retiring, is a big change, and sometimes even traumatic.

Titled “Mindful Aging: a Lifelong Learning Workshop” this 2 ½ hour workshop runs from 1 to 3:30 p.m. It will give participants a better understanding of the aging process by engaging in discussions and meditative techniques to lessen that trauma.

The presenters are Sandy Mauck and Annick Safken. Sandy worked for 25 years in corporate America as a human resources development manager and training executive before becoming a psychotherapist. Annick is a transpersonal psychologist and spiritual counselor.

This is a non-sectarian program is open to all people regardless of religious affiliation or ability to pay. The suggested freewill offering, payable to the co-presenters, is $35 general public, $25 MSPC members. Mountain Shadows Presbyterian Church is located at 3201 E. Mountainaire Road, at the corner of Oracle Road. The phone number is 825-7858.

“Of all the self-fulling prophecies in our culture, the assumption that aging means decline and poor health is probably the deadliest” – Marilyn Ferguson, author.
