Open Circle has suspended its weekly program on the patio at Lake Chapala Society. Each week it highlights a different video of a past presentation. This week, Kat Miller presents “That Aging Thing.” It will be available for view Sunday, July 26, 10:30 a.m. at opencircleajijic.org.
With age we can see our life as from a great altitude taking in a panoramic landscape, with a deepening sense of how everything is connected, including all the losses. From here we can harvest the wisdom gleaned from our lives. We can also discover inner peace, love, compassion, and gratitude at the heart of our lives. We are all going to die – all of us. This terrifies most of us. When we make peace with death we have a deeper appreciation of the ordinary small moments, surprisingly experiencing causeless joy, while also finding the magnificence of life ever more obvious. Join Miller for some ageist repudiation and reflections on how to live this stretch of life unimpeded by fear.
