“That is what learning is. You suddenly understand something you’ve understood all your life, but in a new way."

-Doris Lessing

Join Us for a Love of Aging Community Circle
Beginning January 2021

What is a Community Circle?

Love of Aging Community Circles are free monthly salon-style gatherings (hosted on Zoom for the time being) to discuss a topic of interest regarding aging.

What is the purpose of community circles?

To engage communities in creating a new narrative for aging and to have older age be seen by people of all generations as a celebration of cumulative wisdom, life experiences, and the freedom to go for it.

Who are the Hosts?

Love of Aging Community Circles are hosted by Love of Aging Charter Members, who have attended an orientation and requested the opportunity to host. You can meet our hosts on our GLIMPSES page.

Are the Hosts trained to facilitate these discussions?

Yes. Candace, Liz, and Maureen designed and delivered a 4-part training program for the Hosts, and we meet with them monthly to deepen their skills. (Note: Hosts are discussion facilitators, not mental health professionals.)

Is it too late to become a Host?

No. Please contact us here if you are interested in joining the next cohort of Hosts. We’ll provide details including a video of the Community Circle Hosts Orientation.

I don’t want to host, but I might want to participate. What’s in it for me?

Connection and community. New friends. Exploring interesting topics with likeminded people. Discovering new mindsets and approaches to old issues. Pioneering conversations that shift the narrative around aging. And more.

When do we start?

In January 2021. Our discussion topic will be: “New Year, New You!”

Can I join a Community Circle after January?

Yes. You can jump in at any time.
