The ElderGarten: A Field Guide for the Journey of a Lifetime is author Sally Z. Hare’s invitation to you to join her in becoming what the planet most needs now: Elders. There are more old people than ever on the planet- but fewer Elders, and there has never been a time that wisdom, leadership, and integrity are more needed. This non-linear journey of a lifetime begins early in life and invites us into fully becoming who we are and to use our gifts in service to the planet. The journey requires resilience and commitment. Join us for a conversation where Sally shares the practices she has discovered to build that strength.
