There is a new and exciting story emerging about what it means to grow into our 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and beyond. Counter to the ageist narrative dominating our society, many elders are claiming an emboldened empowerment of spirit, intellect, and humanity. Aging consciously, Elders are creating a global movement that benefits all ages, transforming our very understanding of the human journey.
Rev. Kurt A. Kuhwald has served seven congregations and three Community Ministries as a UU minister, including First Unitarian Church of Oakland. Conscious Eldering, Worker Justice, Climate and Racial Justice are ministries that occupy his heart and dedication now in his 75th year. Working with a community of active and conscious elders in the North and East SF Bay Area, he is excited about the emerging vision of elders because it offers a new story of human development and transformation for these challenging times. He is Co-facilitator of an Elder Salon in Oakland He is also ecstatic that as of July 27th he has been a grandfather for a year and nine months (but who’s counting)!!
