An organizational meeting of a new chapter of Wisdom Seekers will be held Tuesday, July 26, from 10:30 to noon at Booklovers' Gourmet, 55 East Main Street, Webster. The spiritual book and discussion group is an off-shoot of Wisdom Seekers-Arizona, which has been meeting for over a decade. The group would meet only during the summer. More information is available at http://wisdomseekersaz.org/ Debra Horan of Booklovers' Gourmet will offer a 10% discount on the purchase of any books the group might choose to study and discuss.
This group description is an excerpt from the Wisdom Seekers Affirmation: "Wisdom Seekers are people who are curious about the world and who have a desire to learn and grow emotionally and spiritually. We live with a passion for truth and devote the necessary energy to reflect on what it means to be wise. We have made the decision to embark on the journey of a lifetime to discover the lessons we must learn to become wise elders instead of elderly. We live in the present instead of the past with regrets or the future with anxiety.
We study about inner wisdom, living and aging consciously, forgiveness, love, gratitude, mortality, intuition, the various philosophies of the world and many other subjects with an eye toward integrating these qualities and ideas into our lives. As we transition into this new way of thinking about life we find that we are becoming better members of our families, communities and the world.
We are living longer, but for what purpose? Wisdom Seekers search to find our purpose for living in this third phase of life."
