This photo just in from Prasad, documenting one of the activities last week that I didn’t get to witness. (Don’t ask! 🙂 Thank you Prasad!
Thanks Aaryae and Adam for hosting the wonderful circle. I could see myself in a couple of youngsters and wondered how close I could be in the next 20 years to a couple of the elders! It was a very enlightening experience to hear the different points of view. The walk on the beach was great for me coming from a forest of cement and mortar. I gained a few insights whilst being a part of the circle and could see some changes in myself towards creating a greater social impact.
Thank you family for the beautiful gathering, the openness, the home and the wonderful presence of all. Thank you also for the kind intention behind it…
Intergenerational circles can be so great!!! I imagine intergenerational circles in education or work settings for example, that could bring so much goodness to all different generations.
It was so great to see elders listening to youngsters with so much love and affection and also see youngsters paying attention to elders wisdom. I could think that the value of intergenerational listening is being lost, but I prefer to see the cup half-full and say that the value of intergenerational listening is re-emerging!!!!yes!!
Listen to elders stories and learning from younger points of view and creativity are beautiful qualities that we sure need to promote healthy societies!
I am glad I was part of this experiment and hope to see the ripples of love flowing all over 🙂
LOVE LOVE LOVE
Great point about the qualities of this circle being what we need to promote healthy societies. Wow! That’s a beautiful vision of what we can contribute together. Thank you!
A heart filled day of meeting new friends and deepening friendships with others ~ having all ages present from teens to septuagenarians created a rich and intimate circle of sharing. The activities were great, from arranging ourselves by age and introducing each other to walking on the beach as deep listeners and sharing personal edges. The openness and intimacy was very special and it’s clear we all crave these opportunities to gather and share. Ahhh…and to share laughter and tears. So looking forward to the next one! Thank you Aryae and Adam for opening your home and hearts to all of us!
I agree Anne. The design, questions and exercises really made us come together. Thank you Aryae!
The Intergenerational Wisdom Circle was an amazing way to open my eyes to how we’re all very much the same, despite how varied our paths may appear. I love it.
It was a memorable and moving experience. Good talks. Good Connections. People from many generations and backgrounds talking and listening to each other. It will be interesting to see were this goes.
Thanks Adam for guiding us onto the beach. You are doing something very interesting with your life and I appreciate the courage in following your dreams! Wish you all the best and look forward to our next meeting.
Here’s an out-take!
I enjoyed the opportunity to learn how much we have in common and how much we can learn from one another regardless of age differences. Looking forward to the next gathering!
Thanks Nancy. 🙂
You were wonderful and your honesty and authenticity really touched me Nancy! thank you.
