Invited Teacher Series - "Being Old Doesn’t Seem So Old Now That I’m Old" - Anna Douglas

Update: Attendance is now open to all individuals who are free from cold/flu/COVID symptoms, regardless of COVID vaccination status. Attendance on zoom will continue to be an option for the Sunday Program.

It is a great paradox that as old as our body gets, we may still feel young and even exuberant on the inside!  Perhaps it's a sign that our Buddhist practice has revealed the not-self of the body, and we no longer hold to it so firmly as "me, mine, myself." This is one of the potential gifts of living long - we may live beyond and out of many of our self-centered preoccupations. Aging provides the perfect curriculum for our Buddhist practice. Even for the Buddha himself. Let's explore the territory together.

Anna Douglas PhD. is one of the founding teachers of Spirit Rock Meditation Center and a member of the Teachers Council. She has taught classes and intensive retreats in the Insight Meditation tradition nationwide for 30 years. She has a background in psychology and the arts, and is an avid painter. Her current teaching is focused on the practice of Dharma in aging and dying. She is the guiding teacher for Insight Meditation Tucson where she spends the winter months.
