Tuesday, October 10 10-11:50 AM “Wake up to Ageism and Push Back”
Osher at SDSU Free to members, $30 nonmembers
Where did you last encounter ageism? Maybe it was in the birthday card a friend sent or in your own description of a “senior moment” you had. How do you know if you have internalized these stereotypes that may be disempowering you? Discover what ageism is and how it has distorted our view of aging, making it something to fear rather than a lifelong process uniting us all. Share examples of behaviors and attitudes in your own world that reflect ageism. Explore together in small groups ways that we can push back against ageism when we are aware of it in ourselves and our culture.
Tuesdays from 10-12 “It’s Never too Late to Begin Again” Discussion Group
October 17 to December 12 (no meeting November 21st) 8 meetings

Are you wondering “What’s next?” as you move through the transition into retirement or aging? Would you like to explore the challenges of these years in a safe, supportive environment? Join this lively discussion group based on the book It’s Never Too Late to Begin Again- Discovering Creativity and Meaning at Midlife and Beyond by Julia Cameron, the bestselling author of The Artist’s Way. You will reignite your sense of purpose, connection, joy, vitality, adventure and more as you discuss the chapters and work with the basic tools of Morning Pages, Artist Dates, Walks, and a Memoir. You are encouraged to purchase your own book before the first class. Your facilitator, Virginia Berger, M.A., CPC, ACC, is a retired educator, now professional coach specializing in life’s transitions, especially retirement and conscious aging.
