Recognition Rites: Honoring Elders

with Dr. Tom Pinkson

RECOGNITION RITES FOR A NEW VISION OF AGING - HONORING ELDERS™ is a program that shifts attitudes about aging and older people to the position of respect and reverence that mature cultures demonstrate with their valuation and socially integrative use of their elders.

It offers a unique blend of ancient and contemporary knowledge that is the result of Dr. Tom Pinkson’s forty years of work bridging cultures, traditions, belief systems and peoples. Recognition Rites offers hope and a call to action, in a most timely and necessary manner.

It is a program that works authentically, integrally and skillfully with the challenges and opportunities for renewal on the Journey of Aging – Consciously.

A core theme of Recognition Rites is “Gerotranscendence” – growing into old age with a fortified spirituality and cognition that evolves from shifting definition of a separate self based on ego to an understanding of larger Self that is one with the creative power(Spirit)of the cosmos.

This opens the heart to the transformational healing power of love. Read more about Recognition Rites.

Proof We Can Learn, No Matter Our Age!

Hazel Soares, a resident of San Leandro, California, recently graduated from Mills College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History. Her story may sound like that of many college students, but Hazel has the added bonus of being 94 years old!

This mother of six and grandmother of 40+ hopes to use her degree in a career as a History Museum docent. In addition to art, she has a deep love of the theater and swimming. Her age doesn't slow her down at all, but it has put her in line to be the second oldest college graduate to earn a degree in the world.

Hazel does not take any prescription medicines and her doctor gives her a clean bill of health after her regular check-ups. It's her passion for understanding how to do things, and not age, that remains her daily focus.

"I have the endurance and I would totally put my heart into it," she said. "I've put in my time and I do have the background for this kind of work, you know."
