Over our life spans, we experience a sequence of psychosocial developments, including relational, vocational and aspirational challenges. We encounter an intensifying series of care needs and support agencies as we grow older, and a distinct set of philosophical and spiritual questions emerges for us, including the meaning and purpose of human life in general and of our own lives in particular. How can we best understand and address all these challenges?
We’ll explore the process of aging from several perspectives, using the theories of Jung, Tornstam, Erikson and Maslow; research on health care and aging; and literature on life review and spiritual reflection. We will aim for deepened self-awareness and integrity, more astute social perception, inspiration for creative planning and healthier activity, and progress toward personal wisdom.
