On this episode of ASR Lori La Bay invited Nader Shabahangi and Mary Turner-Archer to speak on The Gift of Forgetfulness, the Guide Posts to What Matters Plus the Power of Dance. In his segment Nader speaks about removing stigma, celebrating maturity and eldership and how for AgeSong the view of forgetfulness is a foundational tenet that promotes inclusivity as an approach to forgetfulness in all of its forms. How it promotes the feeling of "I am like you - not separate from," and how that in turn promotes connectivity. The connected approach is fostered with an attitude of love in the communal setting of AgeSong. Nader also speaks about promoting Eldership as a way to giving Elders to opportunity to teach and contribute and he talks about the view of AgeSong as a communal/social living vs assisted living environment. In the second half of the program Mary Turner-Archer speaks about her work at Breath of Life, Creative Arts and transforming lives with her knowledge of Brain Science, Music and Dance.

Biography
Nader R. Shabahangi, received his Doctorate from Stanford University, is a licensed psychotherapist, and is cofounder of AgeSong. His multicultural background has fueled his passion for becoming an advocate for marginalized groups and for creating programs with the purpose of caring more comprehensively for elders. As CEO, Nader ensures that the company's vision drives its decisions and plans for elder care services. In 1992, Nader also founded the Pacific Institute, a nonprofit organization that defines its mission as one of helping elders live meaningful lives. Nader is a frequent guest lecturer, including presenting at international conferences focusing on aging, counseling, and dementia. In 2003 he authored Faces of Aging, a book challenging stereotypical views of the aging process and of growing old. In 2008 he co-authored Deeper Into the Soul, a book aimed at de-stigmatizing and broadening our understanding of dementia. In 2009 he co-authored Conversations With Ed, a book challenging readers to look at dementia in different ways. In 2011 he published Elders Today, a photo and text book that cherishes aging and old age as a most desirable phase of our lives. Celebrating the intergenerational dialogue between young and old, Nader edited and published Encounters of the Real Kind in 2012. This book is a collection of stories and anecdotes that pay tribute to the deep and life-changing encounters between elders and those learning to become elders.

Interview with Bill Ryan: A Working Septuagenarian with a Big Heart

Interview with Bill Ryan:
A Working Septuagenarian with a Big Heart
moderated by Dr. Sally Gelardin

December 22, 2012
As a septuagenarian, I feel increasingly free to go beyond the limitations of theory, techniques and the emphasis upon maintaining professional distance to be a more open-hearted, loving human being with my clients. In a heart-centered approach to counseling, clients learn how to engage their own inner Wise Elder and their Big Heart to resolve career questions and other major life dilemmas. Counselors learn how we can continue to be an open-hearted, compassionate presence when we are confronted with the suffering and emotional struggles of our clients hour after hour, day after day for years. Clients also learn how time spent in nature can be a place of sanctuary and psychological recharging during the difficult periods of their lives.

Interview with Ilene Serlin on "Elders & Occupiers:
20th & 21st Century Movements Meet", moderated by Dr.Sally Gelardin

December 2, 2012
On November 20, 2011, a delegation from the Council of Elders (veteran leaders of the freedom and peace movements of the mid-20th century) led an interfaith service at Zuccotti Park in NYC, with hundreds of Occupy Wall Street activists taking part. In our lives today, overwork is driven by fear of disemployment, by the need to work two or three jobs to pay for food and rent, and for some by the relentless need to "prove" one's utter dedication to "getting ahead." The result: Little time or no time for family and neighbors, for grass-roots political involvement, for the Spirit. (Rabbi Arthur Waskow)

Biography
Ilene A. Serlin, Ph.D., BC-DMT is a psychologist and registered dance/movement therapist in San Francisco and Marin. She is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association, past President of the Division of Humanistic Psychology, served on the APA's Presidential Task Force on Whole Person Psychology, and is Founder of the Arts Medicine Program at the Institute of Health and Healing at California Pacific Medical Center.

Assisted living classifications are increasing and costs are rising, a phenomenon disparagingly reflected to as "acuity creep." Learn how elder communities, such as AgeSong, can meet the growing need of older adults with "chronic disease management." Specialized programs will be discussed, such as those developed specifically for clients with diabetes, congestive heart failure, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cancer, HIV/AIDS, renal failure etc.

Interview with Don Hanlon Johnson on
"Cultivating the Elder Body of Wisdom"
moderated by Dr. Sally Gelardin

January 26, 2012
Aging is not just an inevitable force of nature to be put up with, but a unique and ultimate invitation to exercise our creative imagination in shaping ourselves. Without maintaining a vigorous program of bodily activity, physical and emotional health are endangered. And yet, the creeping realities of muscle-bone deterioration and joint impairments make it difficult to sustain an active regimen. Only with great effort, can one tough out exercises to keep muscle mass and avoid the disastrous effects of a fall, or the pathologies from collapsed organs. Unique approaches to nurturing body vitality, flexibility, and balance are possible for elders in ways that are not available in earlier years of life. Over my nearly 80 years of dealing with my own severe physical restrictions, I have cobbled together, with the help of some marvelous teachers, specific strategies of movement, body awareness, breathing awareness, and balance exercises that are appropriate for the advanced experience and subtle intelligence of elders.

Biography
Don Hanlon Johnson is a professor of Somatics in the School of Professional Psychology at CIIS, founder of the first graduate degree program in Somatics, and co-director of the Center for Somatic Reseach. He is a practitioner of various approaches to body cultivation, and author of several books on the body, the latest of which is Everyday Hopes, Utopian Dreams: Reflections on American Ideals.
