Why did we choose “tea dancing” for the February 8 event at AgeSong’s Forget-Me-Not Cafe? “Because Marion loved tea and waltzing,” according to Theresa Garcia, senior movement trainer for the Rosen Method approach to bodywork and movement. To learn more about Marion Rosen, a physical therapist and health educator for 50 years, read article below. Marion passed away a year ago at the age of 97. She practiced her innovative method of bodywork and movement until the end. The tea dancing event will be presented by Rosen Method practitioners in her honor. Hope you can join us Friday, February 8 at AgeSong’s Forget-Me-Not Cafe, 602 Hayes Street, San Francisco, from 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm. CLICK HERE to view flyer.Tweet This Post

As we age, our abilities change and we often lose confidence. We can learn from individuals with disabilities how to handle challenging situations, such as preparing for disaster.
Jessie Lorenz, Associate Director, Independent Living Center, who was a panelist at AgeSong’s Poetics of Aging Conference in 2011, had her organization’s staff members trained by NERT (citizens trained to respond in times of disaster). She noted, ”When a disaster strikes, we [individuals with disabilities] are going to be involved and we’re going to be part of the solution.”Tweet This Post
What is reality? Why do people in extreme states feel connected to the universe, and experience uncanny and even supernatural events? Does quantum physics have something to teach us about madness? What if therapists were like indigenous tribal shamans, entering into clients’ “psychotic” worlds as if stepping into a dream?
As the holiday season revs up, holidays for many are a time of quietude and reflection.
Dr. Marcia B. Leventhal (1980) talks about the “speaking to,” and “touching” all aspects of another’s soul-self. She says there are many ways to understand oneself and others besides words, which sometimes get in the way.Tweet This Post
I totally buy into the concept of youth and elders joining together to learn from each other. My granddaughter (10 months old) and my mother (93 years old) are my greatest teachers. They both teach me to be in the present and to listen, not an easy task for an aging boomer, with a maternal heritage of strong-minded women who expressed their viewpoints on anything, asked or unasked.Tweet This Post
