Spirituality, Aging & Narrative: The Sacred Art of Story Listening

November 16, 2018, 8:30AM – 3:30PM
Great Hall, Conrad Grebel University College
140 Westmount Road North, Waterloo, ON N2L 3G6

When someone says ‘That’s the story of my life’, what do you understand them to mean? Is their story one of liberation or loss? Is it a tragedy, a comedy, a romance, an adventure? Is it rooted in a larger story, of a people, a community, a family, a faith? In the morning session we will explore the intersections between spirituality and narrative, and between narrative and aging, focusing on both the unique developmental tasks of later life, and the challenges aging poses to our stories. The afternoon will introduce the sacred art of story listening and prepare participants to provide narrative care.
