"I hope you sense what a glorious future awaits you in old age. No longer will you dread the evening of life as a time of unremitting suffering and futility, but as an opportunity for continued growth in consciousness and service to humanity. What a vista, what a wonderful adventure, what a miraculous window of opportunity awaits us in old age!"

—Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, From Age-ing to Sage-ing: A Profound New Vision of Growing Older

The Sage-ing Guild invites people of age to expand inner growth, develop spirituality, and offer service to community—to deepen self-awareness, enhance interpersonal relationships, hone communication skills, and cultivate the value of Elders as mentors and wise counsel in communities.

We provide programs for those interested in teaching the principles of sage-ing to people in their own communities. The network of trainers offers events in the United States, in Canada and in Australia. As a Sage-ing Guild member, you will enjoy newsletters, a community, discounts, and valuable resources to support you on your sage-ing journey.

Mission of the Sage-ing Guild
The mission of the Sage-ing Guild is to change our society's current belief system from aging to sage-ing—that is, from simply becoming old to aging consciously.

  • Building and supporting a network of trained Sage-ing Leaders who transmit the wisdom of sage-ing through workshops, elder circles, and other educational and personal growth programs
  • Conducting a robust public education program to transmit the wisdom of sage-ing through a wide variety of social media
  • Collaborating with other like-minded organizations to mutual benefit
  • Building a network of Ambassadors of Sage-ing who, in addition to doing their own sage-ing work, share the vision of sage-ing with their personal networks
