Creative Aging by Norma Schuh and Dan Grippo at International Friendship Club

Janie Albright Blank - International Friendship Club
March 13, 2015

Join us at the International Friendship Club in Puerto Vallarta on Thursday, March 19, 7:00 pm for Creative Aging presented by Norma Schuh and Dan Grippo.

Every moment of life really is an incredible gift that brings with it special blessings and unique challenges. The aging experience can be a time of celebration - of thriving, not just surviving. As actress Sophia Loren observed, "The fountain of youth exists in your mind, your talents, and the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love."
Whatever your age, whatever your situation, "The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are," in the words of author Joseph Campbell.

This presentation on Creative Aging will invite you to celebrate the gift of aging and offer some tools and new ways of thinking about and approaching the later years so that no matter your circumstances or "limitations" (another word for "opportunities") you can ensure that these years are indeed golden!

Norma Schuh is a playwright, actress, author, and presenter. She holds a Master's Degree in Human Development with a special interest in spirituality, aging, mortality and humor. In Puerto Vallarta she has conducted workshops and written for various local media. She is an adjunct instructor at St. Mary's University in Minneapolis, where she teaches Confronting Personal Mortality as part of the Human Development Masters Program.

Dan Grippo is an author, lecturer, meditation teacher, and certified Spiritual Director. He holds Masters Degrees in Religious Studies and Latin American Studies and a Ph.D. in Mexican History.

Requested donation at the door: 50 pesos or 2 Kilos of Food Aid for Community Services (rice, beans, sugar, diapers, toilet paper). There will be a Cash bar.
