Noris Benet presents “The Stage of Meaning: The Sunset of Our Lives” at Open Circle, Sunday, September 19, 10:30 a.m. at the Lake Chapala Society.
A fulfilled life is the result of finding meaning in the latest stage of our life. If we have come this far, life is telling us that we are having the privilege to discover a deeper understanding of what our life was for. We can redirect attention to see the threads that have run throughout our lives: forces, images, themes that can be traced from the beginning of our consciousness until the present. This reflective process allows us to comprehend the value of our lives not because of our accomplishments but because there were archetypal, unconscious forces guiding us (which we probably were not aware of as they happened).
Binet is a psycho-spiritual counselor and her work is guiding and supporting people in their personal investigations, aimed at finding the deeper meaning in their relationships, talents and challenges.
Democrats Abroad Lake Chapala Chapter presents a free Zoom talk, “Fighting Mis-Information: How to move beyond false information to promote progressive viewpoints,” Monday, September 20, 4 to 5 p.m. The two speakers will be Michael Lambert, co-leader of the Talk Radio Project, a U.S. group of volunteers who provide fact-based and progressive talking points on conservative radio call-in shows, and Aftyn Behn, chair of ActionTN in Tennessee, an affiliate of the America Votes network.
Lambert is a life-long activist and a former volunteer regional coordinator with “MoveON.” Behn previously worked with the organization “Indivisible” and with the Tennessee Justice Center during the Medicaid and Affordable Care Act congressional fights.
