Successful Aging - a monthly group for Young and Old — and In-Between!

How can we learn to thrive as we age? Interested in exploring this with others? It could trigger a plethora of exciting life discussions. Come join us and see; click below for more information.

- What IS successful aging? Since all who survive long generally experience sickness, old age and death, is successful aging an oxymoron?

-Interesting conversations, helpful learnings, enjoyment, friendships arise as we share our ideas, knowledge and experience.

Is it helpful – and interesting -- to learn about these issues at any age? – we think “Yes” ; what we earlier learn and do affects our later physical and emotional health, finances, whether relationships last – and what we pass to others, often including our children.

Structure: Meet once a month, more if we wish, for 1 ½ hours to share our experiences, understandings, perhaps a question/topic for our meeting, perhaps a speaker, perhaps related reading or podcast or video; occasionally a moment to celebrate a birthday of a group member – whether it’s 25 or 50 or 100.

Breakout groups can encourage deeper connections or discussions.
Participate and help shape the discussion and the structure.
