I have been studying and facilitating the Work That Reconnects for the past 10 years, and using these techniques wherever I can -- motivated by my own need to make sense of the critical times in which we live and discern a path to a future that is just and thriving. I have also integrated Joanna’s teachings with those of Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi’s Spiritual Eldering work, creating my own series of workshops based on this natural synergy -- “Becoming Vibrant Elders in Our Evolving World.”
As an organizer I identify as an “elder activist” motivated by my love for my children, the beauty of our world and the passion I have for Life herself. Discovering that there was no website that served to inspire, educate and support elders in becoming activists concerned with leaving a viable legacy for future generations, I founded my website, Elder-Activists.org.
I serve on the Board of Elders Action Network and as a co-convener of the Elder Activists Social Justice team as we work together to build a movement of engaged elders addressing the challenges facing our world. I am a recent empty nester, living in Philadelphia, with my partner Mordechai Liebling. Together we have five children and a very young granddaughter.
