The Portland Aging group, Aging in Enlightened Society, is a social group for those who are experiencing aging – whether it be turning 40 or 70.
The term ‘aging’ implies elders, and while that age group is certainly part of the focus, growing older is happening to each of us every day. Our purpose is to promote community, connection, and inspiration among people wanting to bring their life experiences onto the path of meditation and mindfulness.
Please contact the Aging Group Coordinator for more information or to be added to the Aging group email list for announcements of time and place for our meetings and other occasional announcements.
For the meeting on March 4, please watch Pictures of the Old World (1972) by Slovakian director Dušan Hanák (1972), streaming on dafilms.com for $2.50. Dusan Hanáks poetic visual essay is not a political or even social film. The film consists of dialogues with old people who haven’t been “deformed by civilisation.” The film tries to find answers to questions of human existence. People featured in the film tell their life stories that are linked to their ancestors’ customs. It goes to far deeper and more fundamental levels of human experience. Inspired by the photographs of Martin Martinek, the film’s power lies in its unusual portraits of people whose raw visual beauty radiates from their very souls.
