The last workshop: “AHA! Attitudes for Healthy Aging” was a phenomenal success! Nine participants, ranging between 40 and 70 years of age, emulated aging well in an evening of dynamic discussions and engaging small group activities. Participants practiced visualization, relaxation and creative teamwork in collaborating a community quilt made out of paper that illustrated 4 vital components of aging well. One senior participant stated the workshop encapsulated numerous key points in a way that she had never seen before. She was very pleased with the entire session and wrote a raving view that can be seen on the testimonial page of this website. She summed it up beautifully, stating that the workshop “crystallized her thoughts” on healthy aging!
