The Gift of Years: Growing Older Gracefully, Part II

Course Description

The completion of Part I is helpful but NOT required. Using Joan Chittister's book, The Gift of Years, the class will reflect on and discuss additional aspects of this specific time of life (after retirement) as expressed by the author. Our major themes and engagement will come under these topics/chapters: authority of age and using this time, solitude and outreach, wisdom and limitations, legacy and the time of twilight. Our learning methods are to: 1) read and reflect on assigned chapters (prior to class), 2) consider how and if this topic intersects with your own life experiences, and 3) be ready to participate in class discussion. FIRST ASSIGNMENT: Read or reread INTRODUCTION, pp. vii-xvi, LEARNING, pp. 95-99, Authority, pp. 33-38, and THE PRESENT, pp.201-206.
