Who We Are

“Scripture and Tradition can be seen as sources of outer authority, while our personal experience leads to our inner authority. Only when inner and outer authority come together do we have true spiritual wisdom.” 

– Richard Rohr, Daily Meditations, June 25, 2021

We are a community of older adults dedicated to deepening our spiritual journeys as we live out the last third of our lives. We seek to provide safe space where we can listen to the wisdom of God’s spirit revealing itself from our own souls and in conversations with each other. 

We gather regularly in large and small groups online where we create space for listening for deep wisdom. Using resources from authors, poets, and artists, we dig deeply to find meaning and guidance for this time of our lives. 

The community is facilitated by a core group who manages the operational details – choosing resources to consider, running the technical aspects of Zoom, keeping the community organized, and updating our website But we come together in circles of safe space where we receive from each other. 

We practice the art of “holding space” for each other to discern without judgment or criticism. And we metaphorically leave an empty chair for others to join us.

We invite you to learn more about The Wisdom Years by perusing this website or by contacting one of us. 

We long to share our journey with you.
