The WiseWo/man Years: Finding Joy and Fulfillment As We Grow Older

As we approach, enter, and exist in our wisewo/man years, the best thing we can do for ourselves is to be open to change rather than resist it. By choosing to be carried by life’s flow, we invite unexpected pleasures and new discoveries into our lives. When we are welcoming and responsive to whatever is happening in the moment, we fully appreciate where we are now and everything that lies ahead. In this four-part series, Coach Minx encourages participants of a certain age and stage of life to reap the richness of what they have planted and tended these many years. Her musings about growing pains and perks are meant to inspire you to embrace both your successes and less-than-successes and recognize and celebrate the magic in the unknown. Her optimistic yet grounded perspective will remind you that, no matter where you are on your “growing older” journey, joy and fulfillment can be found in all that life still has in store for you.

BODY-WISE PRACTICES: How Being Present in Our Bodies Can Enrich Our Lives

Florida Atlantic University – Osher Lifelong Learning Institute – Boca Raton, FL

Course Description
The focus of this one-time program is to encourage participants to mindfully reconnect with the miracle of being present in our body.

When we make time to tune in to what is needed and wanted physically, we can shift our energy and our comfort level in immediately noticeable ways. This program is highly experiential, and participants will explore the various ways to get body-centered and focused. There will be multiple handouts to encourage ongoing use of what is learned.

TIME: 12:30 PM – 2:00 PM
DATE: Wednesday, October 12
LOCATION: Lifelong Learning Classrooms, Continuing Education Building


PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: There are “AHA! Moments” that shape and shift our lives. This course is an opportunity to look back on what brought us to this time and place while looking to the future with hope and determination. We will focus on what it takes to grow boldly, to remain involved with and connected to our own true selves, others, and the larger communities in which we all participate.

The theme of this series revolves around the quest to see each new day as a gift and an opportunity to live in meaningful, purposeful, joyful, and fulfilling ways. Using a coach approach, we will explore inspirational ideas about how to thrive through this time of life. Now, more than ever, the world needs our experience, perspective, and wisdom.
