Where & when:

Conscious Ageing at the Integral European Conference online

In 2014, I and Mark Davenport, my husband, were present at the second Integral European Conference with the topic “Ageing”. Afterward, we started to invite people into video podcasts who were willing to talk about their experience, their own getting older, or what they find when accompanying others in their ageing process. After Mark’s unexpected death I also inserted the topic of severe illness, death, and accompanying dying. So far 74 podcasts to the topic are available at www.TheWisdomFactory.net

For the Integral European Conference Online, I have invited some of my previous guests to share their insights and wisdom regarding ageing. They will talk about their practices of facing the reality of life while moving on in the best way possible. How can we help others to go through this special period of their life as well?.

Names of co-contributors: Ann Roberts

Ann’s exploration of Conscious Ageing began in 2015 when after a 35 years career in organisational, team, and personal development, she retired from Police Scotland as a Leadership Development Consultant. She is now exploring Conscious Agers via an initiative called Active Wisdom: An Inquiry into our Elderhood. Ann is particularly interested in adult development opportunities within the life cycle stage of Elderhood that arises from the possibility of more freedom, more time, and more potential for exploration. In 1996 Ann first encountered an indigenous Mayan body of Teachings that, over the years, she has woven its tools and protocols with her love of Integral Theory.  Ann lives in a village just south of Edinburgh in Scotland.
