10th International Conference on Ageing and Spirituality

June 4, 2023 - June 7, 2023

Challenges and choices: Spirituality and dignity in later life

Back to in-person!

We are moving beyond stereotypical assumptions about what it means to be an older person. Opportunities and options abound for many, to the point of being overwhelming, while others live with limited choices. Ultimate questions about living and dying are surfacing, and understandings and experiences of spirituality are shifting. The pandemic has provided new concerns, opportunities and urgency on both a personal and societal level.

The theme of Challenges and Choices is an invitation to explore various issues within the scope of ageing and spirituality. We will focus on the contexts in which we find ourselves, generational perceptions of the reality of ageing, and where and how we find dignity in later life, dying, and death. Diversity, the role of the arts, and the potential of technology will also flavour our discussions as we meet in June of 2023.
