No Time Like the Present
A Guided Exploration of Aging
This 6-week workshop is for aging adults who want to be proactive in addressing aging issues. Participants will build skills creating community, increase knowledge of the aging process, and increase confidence in their ability to manage their aging process. We will explore social, spiritual, and practical issues of aging in the 21st century including addressing ageism, staying visible in a culture that doesn’t value elders, and establishing ways to stay active and engaged across the lifespan. This is a supportive group facilitated by Dr. Mary Flett where we can share our concerns and ideas, and learn from each other.
