Embracing the Small to Enlarge Our World

Thursday March 7, 2019
Ed Roberts Campus

As we grow older, our world may shrink. We may not be as active as we once were, travel as widely, socialize as frequently, or remain as busy as we used to be. This does not mean that this smaller world cannot be as rich of an experience. By learning to see what is right in front of us, we can discover exquisite beauty, experience intense joy, and feel connected throughout life’s transitions.

In this forum, Jane Anne Staw, a Bay Area writer and writing coach will teach ways to keep our world as large as possible.
