In this session Pauline will share the infinite joys and lessons of her life journey based on what she calls ‘saging”:
- The act of approaching aging as a journey of deepening wisdom, continued learning, expanding possibilities and renewed purpose.
- A process of self development that enhances interpersonal relationships, hones communication skills, and cultivates a valuation of Elders as mentors and wise counsel in community.
- The act of harvesting life’s wisdom as a legacy for future generations.

1. Healing Powers of Humour
“Humour greases the journey. I don’t understand what bugs people about aging. I’m kind of proud of it. I made it to 51! …I don’t care what people think about me anymore. You get a discount. Age On!” Sue Minns, multiple sclerosis at 41, survived cancer and house fire
“Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow… Joy shall be reflected in all things.” Helen Keller
2. Let go of the Anchors
Recognize dream squelchers, sunshine blockers, misery monsters and sometimes your own self pity as human anchors that drag you down.
3. Uncork your Positive Powers with Creative Aging
