 “Bridging The Gaps With Dynamic Eldership

Brothers and Sisters of all ages …

Join us for a weekend full of discovery, engagement and celebration in the bountiful Finger Lakes region of NY State.  A weekend long exploration of what it means to be a dynamic elder in today’s culturally diverse world.   Filled with workshops, lively discussions, games and experiential discovery, come join us as we explore, acknowledge and understand dynamic eldership and the gender, generational and multicultural gaps that exist today.  Our goal is to learn how to bridge these gaps helping us grow towards a more unified and accepting world.

We are seeking men and women of all ages to join together ready to ‘work’ on rebuilding bridges, embracing our similarities and differences, and celebrating the wisdom that exists in us all. The team we’ve assembled to design and deliver the program include men and women of a broad range of cultural and generational foundations, both local and national leaders in personal growth communities.  Let’s ignite a movement of unity as we leave with toolkit that will allow us to go forth in our own communities to deepen our roles as mentor, mentee and elder.

We’ve chosen to host the conference in the heart of the Finger Lakes at CAMP CORY on Keuka Lake, a picturesque well-appointed coed YMCA camp with accommodations for both men and women.  There are also nearby hotel accommodations available as well. Timing couldn’t be better – it will be Autumn’s peak foliage season in the Finger Lakes with brilliant fall colors.

You are welcome and encouraged to join us … embrace your Dynamic Eldership and work together to help bridge the gaps.

In peace and in service.
