“Elders” are those people who are recognized by their community to be first and foremost “healthy” – spiritually, psychologically and mentally. These are often highly “ethical” people. They may be very “spiritual” people, but this does not seem to be a requirement of recognition. An “Elder” in this sense, can refer to respected people in the community regardless of age.
