Finding Your Third Phase of Life
April 16, 2016 @ 3:00 am - 8:00 am PDT
Hokusai, the famous 19th c. Japanese artist said, “I became an artist, but nothing I did before the age of seventy was worthy of attention. At seventy-three, I began to grasp the structures of birds and beasts, insects and fish, and of the way plants grow. If I go on trying, I will surely understand them still better by the time I am eighty-six, so that by ninety I will have penetrated to their essential nature. At one hundred, I may well have a positively divine understanding of them, while at one hundred and ten I will have reached the stage where every dot and every stroke I paint will be alive”. In this spirit, and continuing the conversation from the Friday lecture, this workshop will allow participants to explore individual and cultural forms of the Elder and how this relates to one’s own circumstances as well as identify their own source of fears but also passion and life in one’s own aging.
