Aging with Wisdom

How do we find beauty and meaning in aging? How do we respond to living in an age-phobic culture? How do we cultivate an inner life resilient enough to handle the vicissitudes of older age?

This evening’s talk is based on Olivia Hoblitzelle’s newly published book Aging With Wisdom: Reflections, Stories and Teachings. She will explore these questions and discuss how to envision positive opportunities in later life, weaving Buddhist perspectives through her reflections.

This last phase of life is often the most heroic -- rich with opportunity for reflection, growth, and resolution. Offering new perspectives on aging consciously, this talk is relevant for all ages, including those who have older parents.

Olivia Ames Hoblitzelle, author and dharma teacher, has been teaching about aging and the inner life for over two decades and is the author of the award-winning book Ten Thousand Joys & Ten Thousand Sorrows: A Couple’s Journey Through Alzheimer’s.
