Our Approach

“Aging is not a process of inexorable decline, but a time for the progressive refinement of what is essential.” - C. G. Jung

In Wisdom Care we believe in a world where old age is viewed as a time of meaningful growth, where the importance of Elders for our society and culture is recognized.

We envision empowered self-aware women embodying with dignity their elderhood, finding peace in the present moment and awakening to the need for their gifts and guidance for the benefit of themselves, of younger generations and of the Earth.

We believe that the approach to dying and old age should be radically changed in facilities for the elderly.

Our approach to caregiving focuses on the improvement of quality of life and self-worth through the honoring and compassionate understanding of old age, and through explorations of how to inhabit the aging body, emotions, mind and spirit. We take care to bring back the importance of open-hearted presence, beauty and creativity, as well as non-judgmental awareness of thought and feeling patterns, to ease suffering, pain, and feelings of isolation in elders despite their living situations and physical circumstances. 

Our methodology is grounded in our awareness that Elders, including those who are cognitively or physically challenged, carry both an invaluable wisdom within and ‘an eagle view’ perspective gained from their broad life experience that as younger generations we must acknowledge and respect. For this reason our approach to our work comes from recognizing the abilities of each unique individual and not from a frame of mind that amplifies what is ‘lacking’ or ‘needs to be fixed’. We focus on accessing these abilities and expanding upon them to encourage active engagement, reclaiming a sense of agency in one’s life.

Our work integrates a variety of practices, elements and tools to access unconditioned consciousness through all the senses. This allows us to create an inspiring space where the focus is shifted from mind faculties towards the heart and senses and from an outward to an inward experience of the self.

The sessions we offer are prepared and customized according to the needs of participants and facilities, and based on our evaluation of previous sessions. Whenever possible, experienced facilitators, teachers, guests, and medicine-women are invited to share their expertise, either directly in a session or by strengthening the design of a session through their work and knowledge.
