CHATHAM — A free Zoom workshop offered by Neighbors of Northern Columbia County (NNCC), a self-help group to help local seniors age safely and vibrantly at home, will tell us how to develop a positive perception of being older. The session is entitled “Sage-ing®: Sharing Your Legacy of Wisdom.” This session will be held 4:30-5:45 p.m. Jan. 18. The session is free and open to the public, but registration in advance is required to get the Zoom codes. The session will explore how we can be a “sage.” If we are a “sage,” we can find purpose and deepmeaning in our later years and pass along a legacy of our synthesized wisdom. In this highly interactiveprogram, you will be encouraged to grow and thrive as an elder as you consider multiple ways in which you may harvest and share your well-earned wisdom.
The Zoom speaker is Audrey Seidman, who is certified as a Sage-ing Mentor. She is also a spiritual director and a volunteer interfaith chaplain at Albany Medical Center. Audrey has offered workshops, keynote addresses and other presentations for AARP, the Albany Guardian Society, Schoharie County Office for the Aging and congregations.
