Walk with us...

The Spirit Within is dedicated to creating an online International Friendship of people in their Third Age, those who want to live and share happiness.

We aim, with our online resources, to have a special focus for those of us who might be alone; or who might have difficulty moving about; or who might not be able to leave their bed without help…or have other Third Age issues to live with.

We are called The Spirit Within because we believe with Third Age comes a greater emotional awareness, a spiritual-small-s awareness.

  • We run workshops and campaigns;
  • We will have a Here to Help page;
  • And we have a growing library of resources (many of them free) including video-interviews and podcasts, including self-care podcasts, all with people in Third Age.

Sign up for our occasional newsletters…and if you have any ideas to share with us, or would like to collaborate with us, then please drop us a note through our Contact page.

‘Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.’(philosopher and writer Albert Camus)


At the moment, The Spirit Within is new; it’s gathering momentum, announcing to the world, “WE ARE HERE!”.

I have three main ‘visions’: one is of an online International Friendship of support…especially perhaps to Third Agers who have to stay indoors, or even in bed.

My second is of this huge online conference centre – akin in my mind to the design of the Sydney Opera House! Here will be seminars, courses, entertainments, you name them! And all designed for us Third Agers.

The third is something akin to an online Roman Forum, or World Union of Third Agers , where we can share our differences yes, yet use the voting power of our shared agreeings to ‘make the changes we want to see in the world’, to help the planet survive, to make this world, our world, a better place for all people of all ages, everywhere.

So yes, I am looking for collaborators; affiliate-facilitators and like-minded visionaries to turn this vision into a reality.

And yes, although we are a not-for-profit, money needs to be earnt. Invoices need to be paid; and without earnings there can be no profit for the charities which I want you, fellow Third Agers, to nominate.

So…please do get in touch! Thank you…
