Our Philosophy

Traditionally in the world’s religions, elderhood is a time for intensified spiritual work and for passing on wisdom to other generations. S&P’s Elder Spirituality Project identifies resources for this stage of life for elders and those who work with them. We believe that getting older can be a rewarding spiritual adventure. We invite you to read our overview of the project to see what the time of spiritual eldering means to us and what spiritual eldering practices do for us.
