Felice Rhiannon

The birth of ElderSpirit was certainly unexpected…you might even say it was an accident.

After reading “From Aging to Sage-ing” by Zalman Schacheter-Shalomi Felice Rhiannon began writing short essays about conscious ageing…reflections on her ageing journey. She mentioned them to a friend and who suggested they would be perfect as a blog. A bit daunted, Felice began, knewing it didn’t really matter if no one read them. They would occupy a space in the virtual world.

And so ElderSpirit was born as a blog. Slowly, a need grew to share her experiences reading the book, using many of the practices and journaling processes, and finding a deep acceptance and vibrant welcome for her ageing. Following her curiosity and, after a year-long training with Sage- International (, Felice became a Certified Workshop Leader.

ElderSpirit as a website and portal grew from there. ElderSpirit now hosts workshops, Wisdom Circles and labyrinth walks. Many of the workshops follow the designs of Sage-ing International’s “Awakening the Sage Within” and “Deepening the Sage Within”. Others are created as the need arises for specific groups. Each one creates bonds of connection with like-minded, like-hearted people.

Also in its offerings, ElderSpirit is available for one-to-one sessions for those who prefer a more personal exploration of the joys and challenges of ageing.

Please visit ElderSpirit for our current offerings.
