Regenerative Elder Process (REP)

Coming in September:

The Fall offering of both: 

  • the REP Introductory Exploration and 
  • the Embodying Regenerative Worldviews Exploration

Do you want to continue growing personally while contributing as an elder to the regeneration of your community and society?

REP Introductory Exploration

  • The Regenerative Elder Process Introductory Exploration offers you an initial step in exploring what it means to be part of a community of regenerative elders engaged in longer-term inner work and transformative actions to heal their communities and Earth.
  • A two- to three-hour self-paced program, the Introductory Exploration offers opportunities to learn and reflect on regenerative concepts, new ways of being, and intentional ways to approach life.
  • Through a variety of texts and videos, you will begin to explore what it means to become a regenerative elder in the midst of today’s interconnected challenges.

Next Steps

  • Once you have completed the self-paced part of the REP Introductory Exploration and attended a two-hour live zoom session, you will be encouraged to step back and assess where you are in your own personal development and whether you want to engage in a deeper exploration of alternative worldviews – as preparation for joining a supportive community of regenerative elders-in-training.
  • If you do, you will be invited to enroll in the Embodying Regenerative Worldviews Exploration, a nine-week journey that will start on October 1. You should plan to commit a total of about 40 hours to prepare for and participate in lively weekly conversations during the course of the nine weeks.


  • If you are interested in learning more, you can enroll in the REP Introductory Exploration between September 2 and 12.
  • You will have about two weeks to complete the self-study portion of the Introductory Exploration, then attend a two-hour live Zoom meeting on September 24 at 9:00 am PT.
  • During this gathering, you will meet the other participants and have an opportunity to share with them your thoughts, feelings, and aspirations.
  • The co-conveners will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about the Embodying Regenerative Worldviews Exploration that will be offered weekly on Zoom from October 1 to November 26 at 9:00 to 11:00 am PT. Enrollment will be limited.


In traditional societies, elders were respected and honored as keepers of the wisdom that enabled these cultures to thrive and persevere. It was a reciprocal relationship with the village accepting the responsibility to provide for the physical needs of the elders. There have been spiritual traditions, too, in which itinerant monks brought the teachings to remote villages which fed and clothed and housed the monks. These were non-money-based societies, and reciprocity shows up differently in our modern, industrial society. 

While the Exploration convener team contributes their time, Elders Action Network is responsible for salaries, space, materials, and technology expenses. An EAN member has generously contributed to cover the expense of the platform we have used for the exploration for a limited time. We encourage all participants who are able to contribute to EAN to assure the continuation of these offerings. We also hope everyone shares freely in their relationships what they have received in our Explorations.
