  • EIGHTYSOMETHINGS: Wisdom to Celebrate Growing Older with Dr. Katharine Esty

    Jun 11 2021
    In this stereotype shattering Aging GreatFULLy power-hour of enlightYOUment, we welcome Dr. Katharine Esty, PhD, a practicing psychotherapist and author of Eightysomethings: A Practical Guide to Letting Go, Aging Well, and Finding Unexpected Happiness. A widow, a mother, a grandmother, and an activist for aging well, Esty imparts incredible wisdom as she focuses on creating a new understanding of possibilities for living into older age. At 86 years young, she has learned first-hand the very wisdom she imparts and has many lessons on a variety of important issues, including dispelling myths about older age and a mission to end ageism, which limits and undermines the most experienced among us. Additionally, Dr. Esty feels it’s healthy to acknowledge what we’ve lost in the pandemic, and to grieve these losses—big and small—for our own welfare. But she also shares lessons for a post-pandemic life and how older adults can continue to live fulfilled, happy lives despite the challenges of aging and even COVID and in doing so, conveys positive messages of strength to all generations. In this inspiring hour, Esty describes life challenges, including how loneliness can influence health outcomes and the effects of isolation. We also take a deep dive into the negative impact of ageism, often hidden in surprising places. She shares the details of forming relationships in life’s later years including views on sexual attraction and special connections regarding intimate and loving bonds. Her most resonating message is one of resilience and bringing effervescence to our years as we learn we can have our cake and eat it too when it comes to growing older!

  • The Stories We Tell with Dr. Mary J. Cronin

    Jun 4 2021
    Everyone has a story but many of us choose to keep them in the quiet crevices of our memory bank. But what if you were inspired to share your story beyond your own cognitive archive and actually put pen to paper? What would your story or even stories be about? What would they say about you and the life you’ve lived? What messages might they hold for your loved ones or even the greater world, both today and for future generations to come? In this episode of Aging GreatFULLy, we welcome special guest, Dr. Mary J. Cronin, an advisor for Write the Family, an intergenerational family storytelling program affiliated with Write the World for a powerful conversation on the potential capacity of sharing our untold stories. Be prepared to be inspired to begin your own storytelling journey or even write a memoir or micro-memoir, as Dr. Cronin addresses how engaging family members in telling stories can strengthen connections across generations, reassure younger family members when they hear how elders coped with disappointments and survived setbacks, create a strong and resilient sense of “intergenerational self” in young people, promote intergenerational communication and relationship building and more. We examine how something as simple as your story evokes memories and has the potential to bind generations together, promote healing, and even provide a sense of personal growth and newfound harmony and meaning-making. Dr. Cronin is a Research Professor at Boston College of Management, and the President of 4Q Catalyst, a business strategy consulting firm. She serves as director of the Boston Authors Club, the Encore Boston Network, and the Center for Ageless Entrepreneurs, and has authored 12 books on managing digital innovation and social impact. Combining research from Emory University, along with her family storytelling expertise, Dr. Mary Cronin shares out how rebuilding resilience and self-confidence comes down to the often-over-looked tradition of sharing stories of elders – from both good times and bad. In the end, listeners will be moved to begin their own storytelling adventure of leaving a written legacy and begin the exciting journey of The Stories We Tell. Dr. Cronin invites listeners to connect and join her Write the Family workshops by visiting www.writetheworld.com where anyone can experience the profound liberation and joy of storytelling, especially during these times of social isolation. This is a must-listen Aging GreatFULLy power-hour of enlightYOUment from beginning to end! Thank you, amazing Aging Rebels, for tuning into the show!

  • Beauty in Wisdom with Gregory Landsman

    May 28 2021
    In this episode of Aging GreatFULLy we celebrate the gifts of growing older; including the value and beauty in wisdom shared across generations with special guest, author TV Host, Gregory Landsman, one of the world’s most noted wellness and beauty experts. While some societal views continue to associate aging with loss, the reality is that aging offers many incredible gains. Gain of understanding, knowledge, wisdom, life experience, and so much more that lend itself to well-celebrating living. Gregory shares how important his relationship was with his grandmother, and how she positively shaped his life early in his youth and how her lessons remain eternally with him into adulthood, long after her passing. We discuss the often-overlooked reality that everyone has untold wisdom that can be shared with those they love, the broader community, and even the greater world regarding life, love, lessons learned and important values that allow others to learn, heal and even grow. We revel the incredible role parents and grandparents play in the lives of those around them. In sharing the stories that have shaped us, we create opportunities for connectedness, tether our generational ties and establish intergenerational bonds like no other. In a society that is moving fast, we remind of the importance of good, old-fashioned storytelling through simply sharing our own life stories and experience with those around us. The impact we can have towards inspiring and encouraging younger generations is awesomely incredible. A strong voice for inclusion, Gregory Landsman shares with us his campaign to support children – one that celebrates and values their differences. And in doing so, he is donating the royalties from his book, A Lifetime of BEAUTY, towards this initiative. As a special treat, we actually share on air the audio version of the video for his book, A Prayer for Every Child, to create awareness. This book can be purchased on his website, Amazon and your favorite booksellers. You can view the video we share, connect with Gregory and learn more about his work including his nine books authored by visiting www.GregoryLandsman.com.
