Grow old along with me!  The best is yet to be…”  In a culture that glorifies youth, many would not agree with these words of the poet Robert Browning.  Getting older is often seen as synonymous with loss:  of health, status, freedom and meaning.  However, embracing one’s advancing years can be empowering and joy-filled.  At this workshop you will explore the many positive aspects of aging.
