MIDATL
MIDATL chapter event: GOB Squad Brunch (Generations over Brunch)
Regional Chapters

Theme: Health, Wealth, and Longevity: Thrive or Triple Threat?

In a world that rewards youth and wrinkle-free faces, how do we cultivate a new lens towards longevity? What’s the meaning of these themes across generations? What aspects are no longer valued?

I was inspired to host Generations Over Brunch from Chip Conley, my dear friend and founder of The Modern Elder Academy. The “Generations Over Dinner” global initiative includes sponsors from MEA, Esalen, and the Stanford Center on Longevity. I am also co leading a retreat with Chip, October 17-20 in Santa Fe.

If you can join us, please bring a guest from a different generation. Ages can range from 20-103!

Please bring a bottle of your favorite beverage to share. We provide healthy (mostly vegetarian) lunch and light beverages (sparkling water, juice, coffee, tea, etc.).

We wear socks and slippers in the house; no shoes please.

To confirm, we request a $20/per person lunch expense offset.

Venmo to Lisa-Nirell.

PARKING:

The spaces in front of my townhome are free and available. If you cannot find an open space, please park in my driveway. You can also park in the garage across the Russell Branch Parkway in The Village at Leesburg retail mall. It’s a 6-minute walk to my front door.

We prefer MEA graduates for these sessions. If you have a future MEA friend whom you want to invite, ages 18-103, please let me know!

Space is limited. If you want to bring another guest, please let me know before May 12. midnight.  Please contact Lisa with any questions: 619-889-5422.

APAC
APAC Chapter July Gathering - Not at Your Age
Regional Chapters

JULY APAC Alumni: Wed 17 July 5pm

Topic: 'Not at your age'

What are the things people have challenged you for doing where you felt or heard the response: 'Not at your age'. Perhaps it was falling in love, running a marathon, starting a business etc

Conversely, what are the endeavours you have begun and surprised yourself precisely because you did it at your age?

How much risk should or can we afford to take in later life? Is taking calculated risk a way out of being too comfortable and set in our ways?

Chris will lead a discussion to help you realise most things are for 'any age' and what we might do to action against / for ageism. We look forward to hearing your shared stories and wisdom.
