Care Connection Webinar: How to be Radically Pro-Aging and Dementia Positive
May 17, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDT
Children often bemoan having to wait to grow up, and at some point adults begin to dig in their heels and attempt to freeze the aging process. In American culture there is an unattainable ideal and profitable industry dedicated to anti-aging. What if aging were not seen as a villain but as a wise teacher? What might a pro-aging perspective look like? Could suffering be alleviated through cultivation of eldership rather than resistance? Many are attempting to cure aging and its accompanying changes.
During this presentation, Kyrie Carpenter will be using a depth psychological lens to explore a surprisingly rare perspective of aging as an inevitable and an embrace-worthy aspect of living guided by what we can learn from the experience of dementia.
