Becoming Older Gracefully Retreat

  • -
Fr Christopher Gorst OSB 
En-suite: £145.00 / Standard: £135.00 

Eric Erikson’s psychosocial theory proposed eight stages of human development, the final stage being between the mid-sixties and death. It is a stage which our own Society does not necessarily respect, and we have seen the rise of Ageism.

How do we avoid succumbing to Ageism ourselves? And how do we provide a model of grace-filled maturity and even of wisdom, in this last stage before we die.
