Art of Aging: Transforming the Narrative of Life

Register

$198

As we age, we experience many changes to our bodies, our identities, our relationships, and our legacies.  Inspired by Angeles Arrien’s book, The Second Half of Life: Opening the Eight Gates of Wisdom, I invite you to experience how art and symbolism can help us to discover meaning.  I will be offering imagery and poetry as a springboard to your personal exploration. Through art making, reflective writing and sharing the wisdom of aging, we will explore the themes of:

- Physical changes

- The unknown

- Authenticity

- Relationships

- Legacy

- Creative expression

- Nature's renewal

- Letting go!
