10:00am-12:30pm: Ageless SoulThomas Moore will speak about the themes of his new book, Ageless Soul, and engage in conversation with attendees and analysts
Ageless soul offers positive and inspiring guidance for becoming a full person as time goes by. Since we are all aging, it is for anyone who has ever thought about getting older. It’s especially valuable for people 50 and over. It seems more difficult than ever these days to deal creatively with aging. This book provides a deep and comprehensive plan that sees aging not as losing capacity but as becoming who you are destined to be, a real human being. It covers key matters, such as:
– the shock of discovering that you’re getting older – how to keep your youth in a deep way – how to manage your sexuality as you age – how spirituality can mature and become more important over time – how to value your life by leaving a conscious legacy for your family and your society – responding well to loneliness and depression – nurturing friendships and community as you get older
1:30-4:00pm: Care of the Soul in Troubled TimesIn the afternoon, we will turn our attention to Caring for, and Living from, the Soul in Times of change and upheaval – again with a combination of lecture and conversation
This event is designed to benefit both you and the Institute, and so we are calling it a Mutual Benefit. Instead of holding an expensive fundraising dinner, we asked the well-known author (and DePaul graduate) Thomas Moore, to come back to Chicago and spend the day with you, speaking about his new book (Ageless Soul) and his life’s passion (Care of the Soul).
We're also also asking you to consider supporting our work by adding a donation to the workshop fee. We know from your kind comments on program evaluations that many of you deeply appreciate the work we do. So we take this opportunity to ask you – if your heart and circumstances permit – to support that work. And even if you are not inclined or able to donate, your presence at the workshop is a gift we will treasure.
