The workshop will focus on listening to your own inner wisdom and guidance, integrating inspirational ideas and best practices, sharing in small conversation circles, and listening to the collective wisdom of the group.

The resources all fit beautifully together to create and experience that built awareness and intimacy. There was no pressure and it was comfortable being together.   -- Lloyd H. 

Topics we'll dive into:

  • Introduction to Conscious Aging
  • Self-Compassion
  • Forgiveness
  • Life Review
  • Transformative Practices
  • Death Makes Life Possible
  • Surrender – Letting Go
  • Creating a New Vision of Aging

This program is for you if:

  • You have been thinking about your own aging and feeling alone, afraid, powerless or invisible in our youth oriented culture
  • You are grieving the loss of physical abilities, identity, meaning
  • You are caring for an aging parent and are confronting issues of aging second hand
  • You are someone who wants to embrace life fully no matter what your age or circumstance

The online program features a bi-weekly live session that includes facilitated sharing of inspirational ideas, research and best practices along with small group breakout conversation circles and large group sharing.  Each participant will be mailed a comprehensive workbook and study guide.

If you need to miss a session, you will have your study guide and a buddy from the group to help catch you up. You may also call your facilitator. 

 Includes comprehensive workbook/study guide ($35 Value)


 This program exceeded all my expectations. Totally worth the money and truly it was an important experience for me.   --Amy P. 





What I liked best about Conscious Aging was structure without rigidity. There was a good balance of individual reflection, small group sharing and fluidity. Lynn provides support for our own growth and learning.     -  Linda Scott Halverson, retired professor


(This workshop does not involve horses. I am offering a horse guided Spiritual Adventure this spring with my friend Sage Lewis and a Wisdom Keepers Horse Guided Retreat in New Mexico in the near future for anyone who would like to deepen their conscious aging journey with the horses. Scroll down.)

Wisdom Keepers Horse Guided Retreat

5-day workshop with horses
New Mexico
Exact dates and location TBA
Deepen your conscious aging journey in the presence of horses. Because horses attune so fully to how and who we are being, they help us shed old ways that no longer serve us. They bring us wisely and gently into what has heart and meaning for us now. Activities with the horses address many of the aspects of the Conscious Aging program: Self-compassion, forgiveness, transformative practices, letting go of what no longer serves, stepping in to our fullness and wisdom -- even if our bodies have changed, creating a new vision of aging where we claim our fullness, wisdom, love and joy. (You can be part of this retreat whether or not you attended Conscious Aging, Rich Conversations online.)
$2797* includes all horse sessions, lodging, some meals, facilitated group sharing and processing. Mornings will be spent with the horses doing activities that deepen our understanding of what it means to lovingly let go of the past and step into being a sage, elder and wisdom keeper. Afternoons leave you free to explore the area, journal, play or rest.. There will be an evening gathering in preparation for the next day. 
Stay tuned for more info!
Email if you are interested and I'll keep you updated.

Your Facilitator: 

  Lynn Baskfield, at age 74, has happily re-potted herself in sunny New Mexico after living in Minnesota her entire life. The aging process called her to look at what is truly important, what needed to be left behind, and what calls her forward into life despite setbacks, losses and physical changes and challenges. Lynn holds an M.A in Human Development and is a certified life coach, transformational educator and the author of two books. As owner of SpiritDance Coaching, she has been coaching, training and doing retreats since 1997. She is certified as a Conscious Aging Facilitator through the Institute of Noetic Sciences in Petaluma, California.

Lynn is passionate about offering this rich, life-affirming course. She has experienced much  growth in herself in working with the material and is inspired by the participants in each Conscious Aging group she leads.
