Getting Good at Getting Older (Continuing Series)

Join us on JANUARY 18 to continue our work of "Getting Good at Getting Older"! Rabbi Laura Geller’s Book, Getting Good at Getting Older will serve as our guide as we hold monthly discussion among the cohort of active seniors, their allies and friends of T’chiyah.

For the first half hour, this lay-led session will recap and provide follow up with material from previous sessions, including material on last month's session of isolation.

Then, tune in at 7 PM EST for the discussion that follows, focusing on the next of our FIVE CHALLENGES of Getting Good at Getting Olderthe struggle to regain purpose in our "encore years."

As we age, our longtime work life often ends, and our family life changes course. We may then lose our sense of purpose, which guided us throughout our lives, giving us meaning. Having a sense of purpose plays a significant role in “getting good at getting older.” This session will explore the challenges of engaging in purposeful activities or work as well as the benefits and positive outcomes of reinventing ourselves—retaining or regaining purpose. Having a sense of purpose, especially as it involves others, has been shown to affect physical, psychological, and emotional health in a positive way throughout life and particularly as we grow older, thereby slowing down the aging process and increasing longevity.

Monthly sessions will continue with discussions on the challenges associated with feelings and experiences of Dependence and a special session on Living and Aging with Disability and chapters from the book.
