Course Description

ONLINE: The latest scientific research proves that creativity is key to both a long life and a fulfilling one. We’ll learn how to tap into this source of increased joy and meaning. Find out how the brain changes when we write, paint, dance or walk in the garden. Discover how aging changes our creativity and how creativity changes our aging. Can a change in perspective increase the richness of our thoughts? Are we drawn to memoir for sheer nostalgia, or are there more valuable purposes? How does writing create happiness? Is every dance a dance of joy? Join us as we explore the science and practice of creativity to increase the meaning, joy and vitality in our daily lives. | Lecture + Q&A, Facilitated discussion.
