Some movies are close encounters with the stories of our lives. They encourage us to exercise our values and to take stock of our commitments. They show us how others have dealt with change and loss, success and failure, suffering and death. They open a window into the profound mysteries of life and love, good and evil. Themes of the "sage-ing" process including life review, life repair, approaching elder hood, intergenerational dialogue, mentoring, cycle of our lives, and forgiveness, will be discussed after viewing selected movies.
Movies viewed: Breathe, Our Souls at Night, A Man Called Ove, Learning to Drive, 45 Years, My Old Lady.
