Seize the day and Sage Away:why we need to cultivate meaning with age

I was truly moved by the warm and enthusiastic reception for my online presentation to 40 psychologists and other therapists on the subject of why it is so essential that we all cultivate meaning for ourselves as we move on in life. I would like to share here the thank-you letter I received from the organizer- definitely gave me motivation to keep on doing it, the push to continue to expand my reach, engage around the world and deepen the message: "The greatest potential for growth and self-realization exists in the second half of life."(Carl Jung)

Hi Ronnie - Thank you so very much for your thoughtful presentation yesterday! It was extremely informative and engaging, and while I’d attended your Sage-ing webinar a few months ago, I learned so much more by having the opportunity to re-experience it! The depth of your research and experience was evident in every part of your talk. I especially appreciated your suggestions about how we (and our clients) can cultivate and enhance purpose and joy in our daily lives, and how we can more easily cope with the challenges of aging. Your stories and examples were very inspiring and relatable. I know your presentation will have a positive impact on the lives and work of all who attended. And by the way, I think your presentation set a record for the number of attendees for a LACPA Special Interest Group! Stacy was able to collect the accolades from the chat, and I pasted them below. They offer you a glimpse of just how valuable your work is, and of how much your discussion meant to us. Stacy is also preparing an email to send to all of the participants (plus those who RSVPd but didn’t attend). The email will contain information on your website, blog, and Monday “Harvesting” group, along with links to those items. She will also include a list of the books you mentioned, including the one you authored, along with a link to the film you made about your father. I realize this film is very personal, and we’re very appreciative of your willingness to share it. Thanks again for sharing your time and expertise with us, Ronnie. I know I speak for all of us when I say that you are a great speaker and a valuable resource for our profession. I wish you the best, and hope we have opportunities to connect in the future. Lynne, Cris, & Stacy
