The Gift of Years: Growing Older Gracefully Part I

Course Description

Using Joan Chittister's book, The Gift of Years, as our text, the class will reflect on and discuss this specific time of life (after retirement) as expressed by the author. Our major themes and engagement will come under these topics/chapters: success and accomplishment, finding and giving joy, meaning and purpose, intentional becoming and spirituality for the second half of life. Our learning methods are to: 1) read and reflect on assigned chapters (prior to class), 2) consider how and if this chapter intersects with your own experience of life, and 3) be ready to participate in class discussions. FIRST ASSIGNMENT: Read INTRODUCTION, pp. vii-xvi and MEANING, pp. 7-12
