Sharing Life Experiences in Poetry, Prose and Spoken Word --
This class will integrate the reading of The Good Life (authors Waldinger and Schulz) with sharing of life experiences from class members in writing through prose or poetry or through verbal testaments.
What makes for a happy life, a fulfilling life? A good life? According to the directors of the Harvard Study of Adult Development, the longest scientific study of happiness ever conducted, the answer to these questions may be closer than you realize.
What makes a life fulfilling and meaningful? The simple but surprising answer is: relationships. The stronger our relationships, the more likely we are to live happy, satisfying, and overall healthier lives. In fact, the Harvard Study of Adult Development reveals that the strength of our connections with others can predict the health of both our bodies and our brains as we go through life.
