Description

Are we longing for belonging?

What does it mean to belong? Or in contrast, what are the ramifications and issues around NOT belonging?

In light of worldwide revelations that the opposite of belonging, namely LONELINESS, is reaching a crisis point with catastrophic consequences The Selwyn Institute believes we need to ask, and answer, some fundamental questions.

1. How (and why) in the world are we losing the ability to belong?

2. What is this doing to our sense of being at peace with ourselves and our world?

3. Where do we encounter the ways and means to create, or anchor, authenticity and acceptance of ourselves to truly belong?

The irony is that the world has never been more connected. The arrival of information technology, and the subsequent creation of social media, have opened up exciting new possibilities for engagement and 'virtual' community creation.

Yet the reality says something quite to the contrary indicating that there is no replacement for authentic human engagement.

The 2018 Selwyn Insitute Ageing and Spirituality Conference examines this increasingly complex and interesting conundrum about belonging.

Designed to set the agenda and search for ways whereby a significant difference can be made in helping people remain engaged and with a real sense of belonging. In a manner that is comfortable, sustainable and engaging and culturally diverse.

Join us for an action-packed day with the likes of Bishop Ross (Bishop of Auckland, Teena Abbey from Auckland Council).

We are most grateful for the support of our 2018 sponsor The Retirement Villages Association.
