As human beings, we will experience highs and lows throughout life, and the transitions between the peaks and valleys can be challenging. It's during these times that resilience—the ability to bounce back from adversity—becomes particularly important. Resilience is not always an inherent trait, but develops through a process of adaptation. Please join us to explore the various factors that contribute to resilience.

Longevity: Pros and Cons

Currently in the United States, both men and women are expected to live into their eighties. This represents an increase in life expectancy of approximately 30 years over the past century.

The blessing of a longer life often depends on how we age. Longer is not always better, but there are steps you can take that may help to improve the experience. Please join us to discuss the process of aging and to learn how you can enhance the quality of your life once you reach your golden years.
