THE ART OF AGING: Celebrating the Authentic Aging Self
Thursday July 21, 2022 - 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm ET (11:00 am - 12:30 pm PT)
Join the Matzkins for a profusely illustrated presentation that will introduce topics such as discovering the inner beauty of our older face; the joys and advantages of mature love; finding acceptance and appreciation of the changes in our aging bodies; coming to peace with parents in their old age and death, and experiencing deep introspection about their own death and the preciousness or life. Through their art, the Matzkins have personally experienced how aging can be a time of ripening and harvest, rather than stagnation and despair.
