Too Young to be Getting Old: The Work Around Aging Teleclass
May 23 - June 27, 2012
Whether you’re turning 35 or 60, you may have noticed the passing of time, a body less resilient, a future seemingly less open-ended. What thoughts arise as you forget what you went into the next room for? Or look in the mirror and see a new (or a first) wrinkle?
If it’s anything less than laughter, join us as we identify the beliefs, stressful thoughts, and worst fears we have around getting older and bring them to Inquiry.
This 6-week teleclass will offer a chance to identify and question our thoughts and beliefs around aging, sickness and death—and will offer ample opportunity to do The Work, both in the group sessions, and during each week with a partner.
About the Presenter
When Zoé facilitates, her heart opens and I feel the embrace! She is right there with me and then she asks just the right question to take me even deeper into me. What a gift.
I have found Zoé to be extremely compassionate, patient, insightful, and open. Whether we're dealing with a highly charged "crisis" or simply the stresses of everyday life, Zoé's quiet presence and gentle questions help me to deepen my Work and find my own path to peace.
Zoé gently offers The Work with insightful humble brilliance and paramount clarity. My own inquiry is enlightened by her consistent articulateness as facilitator.

The Work for me has been an incredible gift, giving me a way to break the stranglehold of self-judgments, regrets, and beliefs that so often created torment or depression in my own life. It has also provided me a tool to work with anger without having to close my heart, and to move through the stuck places and obsessive thinking that would endlessly loop in my mind, blocking my full presence to others and in my meditation practice. In fact, The Work itself has become the deepest meditation I know. Like a laser light penetrating the dense dark cloudbank of my thinking, its four questions and turnaround open to a more spacious and joyous, and vaster, possibility of being.
As a psychotherapist for nearly twenty years, and doing The Work for the last nine, I see so clearly how it’s the stories and thoughts we believe that keep us caught in our suffering. I know of no approach so simple, effective and life changing as The Work to cut through these and reconnect us with the love and peace available in our lives.
From my experience in my own Work, as well as with others, I welcome whatever you bring: whether depression, anxiety, anger, self-hatred, rejection, addictions, parenting or relationship struggles, or simply the desire for freedom.
I am available to facilitate The Work with individuals and couples, by phone or in person, and also offer workshops and teleclasses. Please feel most welcome to call to explore the possibilities of working together.
