Publisher’s Description: 

Creative Aging is a powerful new social and cultural movement that is stirring the imaginations of communities and people everywhere. Often called Sage-ing, it takes many forms: academic, social and personal. It includes festivals, conferences, classes, group sessions and individual creative pursuits. The Journal Sage-ing With Creative Spirit, Grace and Gratitude was founded by the Okanagan Institute in 2010 to honour the transformational power of creativity. Intended as an initiative for collaboration and sharing, the Journal presents the opportunity for the free exchange of wisdom gleaned from creative engagement. Sage-ing is about seeking - satisfying inner gnawing and transforming it to knowing and action. Aging can be alchemy when one allows the realisation that to Know Thyself and contribute that knowing to our culture is indeed one of life's highest purposes. That knowing brings the gratitude, grace and integrity that a life deserves. The creative journey into self is a strong aid to health and wellbeing for the individual and to our culture. Creative Aging brings together more than 50 essays and galleries of images that showcase the power of the imagination expressed and enjoyed.

CREATIVE AGING



Stories from the pages of the Journal Sage-ing With Creative Spirit, Grace and Gratitude


Edited by Karen Close and Carolyn Cowan


Creative Aging is a powerful new social and cultural movement that is stirring the imaginations of communities and people everywhere. Often called Sage-ing, it takes many forms: academic, social and personal. It includes festivals, conferences, classes, group sessions and individual creative pursuits.



The Journal Sage-ing With Creative Spirit, Grace and Gratitude was founded by the Okanagan Institute in 2010 to honour the transformational power of creativity. Intended as an initiative for collaboration and sharing, the Journal presents the opportunity for the free exchange of wisdom gleaned from creative engagement.



As Editor Carolyn Cowan writes in the Introduction: "By publishing this book, we share our optimism that the reader will be persuaded toward a fulfilling and different source of accomplishment and reward. All that is necessary is to listen, hear, believe, and follow your own artistic instinct. Aging with wisdom and creativity is an idea whose time has arrived."



Sage-ing is about seeking - satisfying inner gnawing and transforming it to knowing and action. Aging can be alchemy when one allows the realisation that to Know Thyself and contribute that knowing to our culture is indeed one of life's highest purposes. That knowing brings the gratitude, grace and integrity that a life deserves. The creative journey into self is a strong aid to health and wellbeing for the individual and to our culture.


Linda Lovisa, one of the more than 40 contributors to the book, writes: "Creation brings a renewed excitement to everyday life. It's something to look forward to and lose yourself in. The creative way to wellness is guilt free. You deserve to treat your brain, your body, your inner self and the soul in a respectful way, remembering that we are all born with talent and to be creators. It's up to you to find your way. Start by putting art into your daily routine, like having your morning coffee or walking the dog."



Creative Aging brings together more than 50 essays and galleries of images that showcase the power of the imagination expressed and enjoyed.
