Embracing versus Resisting Aging
Aging - a subject that can be fraught with conflicted feelings but so important for us to be able to speak and converse about easily and readily. There are so many negative messages, especially for women, in our culture about all the "bad" things about aging. There are indirect messages about all the losses that aging brings. We rarely focus in on the benefits of aging.
This podcast intends to highlight why the beautiful work of embracing aging versus resisting aging can be life-affirming and enhancing. Our intention is to support you to bring to consciousness these culturally embedded messages, alter them to positively support your own aging, and create new messages to speak and share with others that demonstrate that aging has beautiful benefits and joys. Laurel and Laurel share ways to reconsider how to appreciate aging, strategies to engage aging positively, and ways to affirm our aging as we experience changes.
