AGING GRACEFULLY, LIVING FRUITFULLY – A SEMINAR FOR SENIORS

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”
2 Timothy 4:7

Aging, Frailty and Spirituality

A key aspect of aging is coming to terms with declining health.

How do we cope with this, with pain and disability, and even with death? How does knowledge of our own mortality affect us, including coming to terms with (or facing) our own death?

A blessing of aging is the ability to slow down and reflect, to practise more silence and solitude.

How do we stay alive spiritually, keeping our passion and convictions strong? How do we hear God afresh and cultivate spiritual habits for the spiritual journey? How can we continue to have a ministry mindset and leave a legacy of faith and love?

Aging & Our Inner Wellbeing

Aging gracefully necessitates paying attention to, and nourishing, our inner wellbeing – our mental and socio-emotional lives. A great challenge is loneliness and if you add others, they may include fears and anxiety, guilt and depression, anger and bitterness.

How do we manage these mental and emotional disturbances and transform them into positive emotions like joy, peace and love, gratitude and contentment? How do we cultivate and nurture strong relationships that spur us to holistic health?

Come listen to our speakers Bishop Emeritus Dr Robert Solomon and Dr Ko Soo Meng.

Dr Solomon, Bishop Emeritus in the Methodist Church in Singapore, is a well-known and sought-after teacher and preacher in Singapore and abroad. Drawing from his extensive ministry and faithful study of God’s Word, he has written more than 40 books, including Raising the Next Generation and Growing Old Gracefully.

Dr Ko is a Senior Consultant Psychiatrist at Mt Alvernia Hospital and Adjunct Associate Professor at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and the Singapore Bible College. He has written several books and, together with his wife Helen, has co-authored Understanding & Counselling Older People.

About the Organiser:
QuadC was set up to deal with the 4Cs – Care & Counselling, Coaching & Consulting. 

Care & Counselling focus on the inner wellbeing of a person, his or her desire and need for psycho-emotional healing and wholeness. People need a safe place to process all the troubled emotions, the changes and challenges, the stresses and distresses of life. QuadC provides a haven of help, healing and hope – where lives are touched.

Coaching & Consulting focus on education and equipping a person in the soft skills of intra- and inter-personal relationships (understanding self and helping people) that enables him or her to develop his or her full potential. It employs various means like psychological assessments, clinical supervision, personal mentoring and spiritual direction – where people can flourish.
