Are you willing to receive the gifts that growing older has to offer?

Conscious Aging Workshop

Explore Ways to Expand Your
Perspective on Aging


The Conscious Aging Workshop, developed by the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), is a live, online, experiential workshop for older people seeking guidance, meaning, and connection. You will meet once a week with workshop facilitators Evalina and Marc and other like-minded adults to:

  • Discover what gives heart and meaning to your life, and how you can enrich the years ahead
  • Develop the skills of self-compassion to cope more effectively with change and other stressors
  • Examine how to move from fear and denial of our inevitable losses and death toward embracing a new vision of aging
  • Reveal connection and reduce isolation by recognizing our shared community in the aging process
  • Cultivate a personal road map for your ongoing journey
  • And more!

SPECIAL Two Part Webinar.  Aging From the Heart: Perceiving Possibility, March 7th and March 9h, 2022!

The process of growing older includes an often overlooked component: the noetic character of aging. Our culture rarely celebrates that we even get to age, but as many know, growing older can be a powerful and inspiring time to more clearly hear our inner voice of knowing.

Register for a special interactive two-session online workshop where we will take a deep dive into a single theme: Perceiving Possibility.

Join IONS Conscious Aging facilitators Marc Blesoff and Evalina Everidge as, together, we explore differences between “surviving” aging and trusting ourselves in the natural flow toward well-being.
