Join this Aging GreatFULLy power-hour of enlightYOUment as we welcome guest, Dr. Thelma Reese, co-author of How Seniors Are Saving the World, for an empowering dialogue on how older adults are also some of today’s boldest experts, activists and leaders! In her book, co-authored with BJ Kittredge, they share inspiring true stories of seniors working with vigor and purpose. And they argue that instead of thinking of the 60’s and beyond as the twilight years, that instead, this is the time to shine in the spotlight and take your stage! Tune into this inspiring episode as Reese shares why retirement should be UNretirement, why exiling seniors to nursing homes is not only dangerous, it’s our loss, how volunteerism is being transformed by older adults and how purpose and meaning are recharging love and intimacy for seniors. We even unpack in great detail the damaging ramifications of ageism—both how it’s not only counterproductive as a society—but how it insidiously makes its way into our own lives in ways we may not even be aware. Dr. Thelma Reese is also the author of The New Senior Woman and the New Senior Man and creator of the blog, She’s a retired professor of English and Education, the former spokesperson for Hooked on Phonics, and has long been active in national and Philadelphia-based educational and cultural initiatives. Her book, co-authored with BJ Kittredge, How Seniors Are Saving the World: Retirement Activism to the Rescue, is available on Amazon or her website where you can connect with her and learn more about her passion driven work. Listeners will enjoy every moment of this soul-enriching hour as we remind everyone that age is just a number, we may be growing older but that doesn’t mean we’re old, and seniors are definitely not fragile; but we are certainly fabulous, incredibly resourceful, and absolutely not fading into irrelevance anytime soon!

We’re all growing older, so why not be experts at this thing we’re so fortunate to be able to do! But society more often urges us to fight aging rather than embrace it. We are discouraged from slowing down, implored to keep our wrinkles at bay, and pressured to be “productive” in our retirement.But as today’s special guest, psychologist Dr. Charles Garfield, asserts in his new book, Our Wisdom Years: Growing Older with Joy, Fulfillment, Resilience and No Regrets, the later years are not defined by success and self-mastery like they are for young adults. Rather, those entering their sixties find that, instead of anxiously asking, “Do I have what it takes to complete?” they find themselves wondering, “Do I have what it takes to lead a fulfilling life.”As founder of the Shanti Project, an internationally honored volunteer organization dedicated to the care of the dying, Dr. Garfield is very well acquainted with this shift from “success thinking” to “legacy thinking”. In later years, the drive to keep accomplishing is usually less pressing than the desire to nurture loving relationships and to contribute to something that will live on. Dr. Garfield reminds us that we ourselves can be the difference between zero and one, reminding us each of the important role we can each play in the lives of others. To address this shift in values, Dr. Garfield offers an invaluable roadmap to help those entering later years assess what they truly value, discover latent interests and passions that have been abandoned for more practical pursuits, and invest in the relationships they value most. Drawing on his own experience with aging, along with the accounts of several others, that he has counseled through the years, Dr. Garfield shares a new perspective to later life, and along with it, new visions and discoveries. From asking listeners to embrace a period of radical self-discovery, to discovering and defining their own joy, to forgiving those who have wronged them, including self-forgiveness, and so much more, this is a must-listen power-hour of enlightYOUment that listeners will find thought-provoking and continue to ponder well after the hour has ended. Dr. Charles Garfield has innumerable honors, accolades and distinguished accomplishments including earning a PhD in clinical psychology from the University of California at Berkeley. He writes for and serves on the editorial board of Greater Good, a national e-magazine from the University of California, Berkeley’s Center for Science and the Greater Good.

We have no way of knowing how many days of grand living we’ll be gifted. We’ve certainly become inured to the reality that life discloses our experiences moment by moment in real-time and it is up to us to determine how we choose to finesse all the “whatisness” life brings our way. In this authentically captivating episode of Aging GreatFULLy, we welcome the founding editor of Creative Nonfiction magazine, and architect of the genre, Lee Gutkind, author and editor of more than thirty books. He’s appeared on many national radio and television shows, including The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, Good Morning America, and National Public Radio’s All Things Considered. Even before Lee Gutkind was spotlighted in Vanity Fair Magazine in 1997 as “the Godfather behind creative nonfiction” he was its most active advocate and practitioner. In 1991, he founded Creative Nonfiction, the first and the largest literary journal to publish narrative/creative nonfiction exclusively. All the while, Gutkind continued to practice what he preached, immersing himself in diverse worlds for months and years and producing dramatic and intimate creative nonfiction books about subjects as rich and varied as the motorcycle subculture, child and adolescent mental illness, baseball umpires, veterinary medicine and organ transplantation. However, his latest writing endeavor wasn’t looking outward into the lives of others, but instead inward, towards his very own. Undertaking perhaps his most difficult and challenging work to date, Gutkind took to the task of writing his own memoir, My Last Eight Thousand Days: An American Male in His Seventies. In his revealing, candid and vivid portrait of aging, Gutkind examines aging like we’ve never seen before. And while the words on the pages are his experiences, thoughts and stories, having read them, I feel they may relate in some way to to every listener, as Gutkind has managed to unearth the truth on aging like only he can. A must-listen, wisdom-infused episode that is full of fun, because isn’t that what life is about? But we also shift our attention to some topics that are important and serious that need our attention too. And Gutkind shares candidly the challenges he faced in growing older, including making connections, making meaning of it all, and what he did to find his way to the many better todays and wonderful tomorrows to come. This is definitely a power-hour of enlightYOUment that delivers on so many levels you won’t want to miss! Gutkind’s memoir is a fantastic read for everyone that I highly recommend—to get your copy of My Last Eight Thousand Days: An American Male in His Seventies, or to learn more about or connect with Lee Gutkind visit Thank you, amazing listeners, for making the Aging GreatFULLy show your show!

We love our parents! But do you ever worry about yours as they grow older? Or even your own future aging circumstances? Providing support to a loved one can seem overwhelming and you’re not alone if you find yourself in this role currently.According to Pew Research’s 2015 data, there are 40.4 million unpaid caregivers of adults ages 65 and older in the United States. Of that group, nine-in-ten are providing care for an aging relative, and a plurality is caring for a parent, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.What if there was an ebb and flow to caregiving and time spent supporting and nurturing loved ones was redirected to its fullest potential while still allowing time for ourselves? What if caring for aging parents was an art?In this episode of Aging GreatFULLy we welcome author and physical therapist, Teresa Moerer, who faced similar challenges when caring for her parents and patients.

Her Four-Step Method teaches people how to help you or your parents increase motor and thinking skills, instill healthy habits to promote wellness, make smooth transitions and set quality goals, reach their highest state of health and well-being. Through Teresa’s course, BOSS Caregiver Blueprint, she teaches people how to have a vibrant life while also assisting aging parents. We all aspire to live and age well through well-celebrated and successful life experiences. In this episode we uncover so much about that plays into the premise improving our lives, such as how even those rare relationship encounters matter, why our brain likes surprises, aging in place, the importance of a life vision, why you need to hone your strengths, being an active listener, and even the art of living itself and so much more!A must listen power-hour of enlightYOUment for anyone that has parents or is one… because if you’re aging – this show is for you.

In this episode of Aging GreatFULLy we embark on a real-life journey where dreams that once felt forever on hold were surprisingly discovered taking the path less traveled. Guest Rebecca Bea Thompson, experienced speaker, writer, consultant, facilitator and coach shares her chronicle of personal courage and spiritual expansion that defies conventional wisdom. Frustrated by her (now ex-) husband’s increasing alcoholism, Rebecca embarked on a healing journey which led her to explore a variety of spiritual practices. Following years of spousal devotion and co-dependency, she eventually learned how to love herself, and found freedom from a situation in which she thought she was stuck. From engineer skeptic, she made a fascinating right turn, and discovered a new lens on life. Along the way, she became a Reiki master, certified Crystal Therapist and Shamanic coach, and incorporates these areas of expertise into her consulting and coaching practice. But it’s her talks with the moon that will intrigue many. In her new book, Rebecca Rising: How I found courage and self-love through friendship, coaching and conversations with the moon, this memoir chronicles her healing journey. Additionally, Rebecca shares the life planning process created over a twenty-year period with her best friend, Darlene Ryan. Committed to the friendship and the richness it held for each, they made a pact to always connect on Sundays at 8:30. As a result, they eventually created a book together, Sunday at 8:30: Two Decades of Life Planning, which includes worksheets prompting others to create their own life plan. In her candidly authentic reveal, Rebecca reminds that hope can be hiding in some unsuspecting and surprising places, and that with an open mind, we can achieve clarity beyond our wildest imaginings. A must-listen power-hour of enlightYOUment for anyone and everyone who has ever felt stuck in a situation they didn’t know a way out of, for those seeking strength towards life changes, and for those curious about alternative approaches towards spiritual expansion.

"Unbounded: Journey to Your Within!" This week's Aging GreatFULLy with special guest, author, speaker Aaron McCormick!Tune in to his inspiring and true story of how even when all the odds are stacked against you, your inner spirit has the ability to prevail, ushering you to unparalleled success so you can then light the path for others to do the same!By all rights, Aaron McCormick should have been a casualty of his upbringing, "destined," as he says, "to be crippled by almost every externally imposed and there for, self-imposed limitation you could imagine." Raised on the south side of Chicago, in poverty by a single mother with no education, deserted by a father who was likely an undiagnosed bi-polar schizophrenic, and tightly controlled by an extreme fundamentalist religion that allowed no personal freedom whatsoever, including getting a college education or playing sports, Aaron ultimately defied those expectations of failure. In fact, he succeeded spectacularly. With no college education, beginning is his early twenties, he became a hugely successful corporate enterprise software salesman, making millions of dollars for his employers and himself, climbing from company to company until he was honored with the prestigious “Best of IBM” award bestowed on only 1% of the company’s 400,000 employees. Along the way, he also earned an MBA, without an undergraduate degree!His journey is one of incredible epiphany and one that took incredible courage to stand up to and escape the fundamentalist religious cult in which he was raised, ultimately resulting in the loss of all familiar -- his friends and family. But what he realized to be most fulfilling was the reverence for the power of personal introspection and the universal wisdom right before us all. Aaron decided it was time to step out and share it with those seeking more fulfillment and success in career, love and relationships and personal power. His book, Unbounded: Journey To Your Within is an incredible story and his words will capture readers attention from the very beginning as he shares his unfiltered story that ultimately shows sometimes we just have to take the long way home, a winding road be it as it may—back to our authentic ourselves.

Healing, hope and clarity seem to be valued and needed more now than ever before. Who would have ever known our world could have changed to the unbelievable degree that it has? Actually, today’s Aging GreatFULLy guest, Dr. Julie Krull isn’t too surprised by what’s going on in the world. In her most timely book, written well before this all happened, Fractured Grace: How To Create Beauty, Peace and Healing for Yourself and the World, a 2019 Nautilus Grand and Gold Award Winner and a #1 International Best-Selling Book in Seven Categories, she speaks to the heart of many of the matters we’re facing globally. Fractured Grace is a prescription for individual and collective healing – a resounding call for wholeness in today’s escalating state of chaos, separation and fear.

You’ve may have heard the term Qigong before and if so it’s likely you’ve equated it with just another form of slow martial arts. But as practiced in Wisdom Healing Qigong, it’s actually a 5,000-year-old Chinese Healing system that has significant implications for those that fear contracting COVID-19, those that are suffering from it and anyone who is dealing with physical illness or emotional pain and stress in in the world today. As Founder of the Chi Center, Master Mingtong Gu is the man who brought a profound 5,000 year old form of Chinese healing to the West in the form of Wisdom Healing Qigong, and is bringing it forward as a vital practice in the time of COVID-19.As a child growing up in China during the Cultural Revolution, Master Mingtong endured hunger, poverty, and a long separation from his birth family. Despite these incredible hardships, he became the first from his village to attend college, earning a bachelor’s degree in mathematics followed by two master’s degrees, including an MFA from Ohio State University. As a graduate student in art, Master Mingtong discovered the treasures of his own culture through the spiritual iconography of Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism, while practicing yoga, Tantric Buddhism, and qigong.In 1997, Master Mingtong returned to China for Qigong training under Grandmaster Dr. Pang Ming, a Qigong grandmaster trained in Western medicine and traditional Chinese medicine, and the founder of the world’s largest Qigong hospital. During his training, Master Mingtong observed thousands of cases of chronic and “incurable” diseases being healed at this “medicine-less” Qigong hospital, which treated 200,000+ patients with more than 185 different illnesses, with a 95% effective improvement rate.Could that medicine-less Qigong facility be duplicated in the West? Sold on its benefits, Master Mingtong dedicates his life to advancing the practice and a place to teach it in the United States. Hence, The Chi Center just outside of Santa Fe NM was founded to bring Wisdom Healing Qigong to thousands of people in the United States, China, and Europe through his retreats, workshops, books, and online and educational programs.
