Has a whole section with multiple pages on Seniors and Spirituality.

National Council on Aging

Has great information and a search engine at the top of the page.  You can search for almost any topic on their site.  I put in Spirituality and the articles were very enriching.

 

http://www.asaging.org/

American Society on Aging

Very broad topics but very rich in many ways.  It also has a great search engine at the top of the page (click the word SEARCH and then a space is visible for you to put in a word) that you can use for searching on almost anything.  They have pre-recorded video seminars but, unfortunately, you have to join as a member to view them and the fee seems rather hefty for me.

 

http://www.sage-ingguild.org

This is also a rich site but it also is a paid site.  The associate fee is very reasonable $20/year.  Most of the content on it is based on the book Age-ing to Sage=ing:  A Profound New Vision of Growing Old.  The book is by Zalman Schacter-Shalomi and Ron Miller.
