Aging & Chronic Illness: Meaning & Purpose
In Blackwater Woods is a poem written by Mary Oliver.
To live in this world you must be able to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go.
When we are willing to show up for the full spectrum of the life cycle (including the second half),
then we stop half-heartedly participating in life and start whole-heartedly experiencing life:
the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful.
Connecting with meaning in our lives provides strength for reckoning with the hardships that often accompany the aging process.
This course provides tools that ease the load in some surprisingly simple ways.
