Olivia Hoblitzelle, Aging with Wisdom: Reflections, Stories and Teachings

Tuesday, November 7, 7:00pm
The Odyssey Bookshop
How do we find beauty and meaning in old age? How do we overturn the paradigm of ageism? How do we age consciously and cultivate an inner life resilient enough to withstand the vicissitudes of old age? An extended meditation on how to age consciously and embrace life in all its fullness and wonder, Aging with Wisdom answers these questions.
Olivia Ames Hoblitzelle is a writer, therapist and teacher. She taught in the field of Behavorial Medicine where she pioneered how to bring meditation, yoga, and cognitive therapy into the medical domain to treat stress-related and chronic illness. She helped to develop one of the first training programs in Mind/Body medicine in the country and trained health professionals through Harvard Medical School. 

Her teaching and writing are inspired by over thirty years of practice in psychology, Buddhist meditation, and the wisdom traditions. Having taught meditation and cognitive therapy in a wide variety of settings from government agencies to school systems, she now focuses on elder issues, spirituality and conscious aging. 

An elder with two grown children and four grandsons, she lives in Massachusetts and spends as much time as she can in Vermont where she grows vegetables, welcomes family and friends, and steeps herself in the glories of nature. She continues to teach, counsel, and write.
