Join Us for a Day of Renewal at the 2nd Act Summer Session: Age Means Change, Not Decline
"It’s never too late to be what you might have been." - George Eliot
Embrace your legacy! People today are living longer, typically 10 – 15 years more than the previous generation. Some may have been bought out of a job but aren't done working yet; others who need to continue earning an income are seeking new and gratifying ways to do so. And some want to explore different horizons like writing a book, creating a nonprofit, being a start-up consultant or giving a TED talk. Aging is no longer the loss of possibility; it has become a new stage of opportunity. Join us for a day dedicated to approaching life transitions with wit, humor and positivity.
In the morning, Fritz Coleman, SoCal’s beloved NBC4 News weathercasting icon since 1982, will bring his affable sense of humor to the “climate” of aging.He will be joined by Dr. Linda Lehrer '71, director of New York Public Programs for the renowned Aspen Institute, who will conduct exercises designed to dispel myths of aging and free participants to re-imagine what can be achieved in this life stage. The afternoon session will focus on framing a meaningful 2nd Act with the toolkit devised by Dr. Lehrer through her work at the Institute.
Dr. Linda Lehrer '71
“We are on the frontier of looking at a new way of aging.”
“All that being an icon really means is people can’t remember when you weren’t there…”
We look forward to a day of renewal with you! Program packets facilitating Dr. Lehrer’s process will be provided.
