WEBINAR: The Emerging Elder And Lifelong Learning

With Jonathan Taylor

A human being would certainly not grow to be seventy or eighty years old if this longevity had no meaning for the species to which he belongs.” Carl Jung

Life is a linked series of developmental stages that either catches us from behind, as our life spiral unwinds, or we turn to face that which has been chasing us: our own mortality. SelfDesign is founded on the premise of lifelong learning, and this means unto the last years of this one precious life. What if you could become extraordinarily vital and alive as an elder, more so than ever before? Contribute more deeply and participate more fully in all aspects of life? Welcome to the evolutionary challenge of the emerging elder.

Jonathan Taylor’s work and service includes multiple generations. During the last two years, in addition to his work with SelfDesign learners, Jonathan has been making topical presentations to a local group of seniors (“Learning in Retirement”) and has also been invited to participate in the New Story Summit at Findhorn, Scotland in September 2014, where he carried the flag’ of life-long learning in the context of multigenerational communities as a key to creating a possibility for transformative, game-changing new stories for humanity. As of this date, he is training to become a ‘Death Doula’ as well as a facilitator in the Conscious Aging Program offered by the Institute of Noetic Sciences.
