What's so Funny about Aging: Challenging Perspectives on Aging

Aging: are you ready for it? If we’re lucky, it’s happening to all of us. How do we view this? Is it a topic to be denied, ignored, belittled, or avoided? Enjoyment and laughing our way through our senior years makes the process easier and improves our health! Join us with Amanda Murphy, RN, HNC, as we laugh our way through the aging process together, nurturing our cardiovascular, immune, and musculoskeletal systems as well as our emotional and spiritual selves. Bring your funny bones and your sense of humor! We’ll explore the negative images of aging – “ageism” often presented in the media contrasted with the value (and humor!) of aging. Registration is recommended.  Seating is limited to 60

In addition to her RN nursing credentials, Amanda Murphy is certified as a Health Coach and Educator, Stress Management Instructor, Aromatherapist, and Prepare-for Surgery, Heal Faster Instructor. She is also a national board-certified Holistic Nurse. Rather than tell the healthcare client what to do for improved health and wellness, the holistic model encourages them to make their own health choices, empowered with evidence-based education and discussion. This approach leads to more sustainable lifestyle changes, which can lead to improved health. Amanda is able to bridge the divide between conventional and holistic/integrative health models, having practiced in both arenas for many years. Her unique focus comes from these diverse perspectives as well as from her commitment to ongoing education. Furthermore, her personal relationship with “dis-ease” and unenlightened caregivers has taught her the importance of self-care, lifelong learning, and personal responsibility that lead to self-empowerment and wellness. This experience has contributed to her ability to empathize with her clients.

Retirement Planning with Rajiv Nagaich

Rajiv Nagainch, Your Retirement: Dream or Disaster? How to Avoid the Hidden Traps in Retirement Planning Advice.  Start your New Year off right and learn how to avoid the hidden traps in retirement planning advice! Did you know that a large financial portfolio, an estate plan, and long-term care insurance won’t be enough to prevent your dream retirement from becoming a disaster in the United States? Or do you know someone forced into institutional care after a health crisis, lost assets due to unplanned medical and long-term care costs, or became a burden on loved ones? According to Elder Law Attorney and bestselling author Rajiv Nagaich, these results are called “retirement plan failure.”  Registration is required for this virtual program. 

Over his 20-plus years of experience in United States elder law, Rajiv has developed a step-by-step guide to retirement planning by connecting the various dots of the retirement planning process. The LifePlanning approach is a system that brings together legal, financial, and housing issues into a coordinated effort that can work to make sure you don’t end up being forced into institutionalized care, going broke, and being a burden on your family. In this enlightening and informative webinar, Rajiv explains why “retirement plan failure” happens and how you can keep it from happening to you.

Food & Nutrition with Dr. Robert Lustig

Dr. Robert Lustig presents Metabolical: The Lure and the Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine. Launch your New Year healthy with Dr. Robert Lustig, a pediatric neuroendocrinologist who has long been on the cutting edge of medicine and science. Dr. Lustig’s book, Metabolical: The Lure and the Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine, weaves the interconnected strands of nutrition, health/disease, medicine, environment, and society into a completely new fabric by proving on a scientific basis a series of iconoclastic revelations, among them:

  • Medicine for chronic disease treats symptoms, not the disease itself
  • You can diagnose your own biochemical profile
  • Chronic diseases are not "druggable," but they are "foodable"
  • Processed food isn’t just toxic, it’s addictive
  • The war between vegan and keto is a false war—the combatants are on the same side
  • Big Food, Big Pharma, and Big Government are on the other side

He insists that if we do not fix our food and change the way we eat, we will continue to court chronic disease, bankrupt healthcare, and threaten the planet. But there is hope: his book and this webinar explain what’s needed to fix all three. Dr. Lustig offers a doable plan for us to heal and restore our health and well-being with real food and, in the process, boost our immunity to viruses like Covid-19. Registration is required for this virtual program.

Dr. Robert Lustig presents Metabolical: The Lure and the Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine. Launch your New Year healthy with Dr. Robert Lustig, a pediatric neuroendocrinologist who has long been on the cutting edge of medicine and science. Dr. Lustig’s book, Metabolical: The Lure and the Lies of Processed Food, Nutrition, and Modern Medicine, weaves the interconnected strands of nutrition, health/disease, medicine, environment, and society into a completely new fabric by proving on a scientific basis a series of iconoclastic revelations, among them:

  • Medicine for chronic disease treats symptoms, not the disease itself
  • You can diagnose your own biochemical profile
  • Chronic diseases are not "druggable," but they are "foodable"
  • Processed food isn’t just toxic, it’s addictive
  • The war between vegan and keto is a false war—the combatants are on the same side
  • Big Food, Big Pharma, and Big Government are on the other side

He insists that if we do not fix our food and change the way we eat, we will continue to court chronic disease, bankrupt healthcare, and threaten the planet. But there is hope: his book and this webinar explain what’s needed to fix all three. Dr. Lustig offers a doable plan for us to heal and restore our health and well-being with real food and, in the process, boost our immunity to viruses like Covid-19. Registration is required for this virtual program.

Jane Oneail Presents Jackson Pollock

Join us for an evening with art Historian Jane Oneail who will present "Jackson Pollock, Lee Krasner and Abstract Expressionism."  Jackson Pollock is the famous originator of the drip and splatter paintings that came to epitomize Abstract Expressionism at the middle of the twentieth century. Pollock served as the de facto leader of the movement, a masculine cowboy representing “action painting.” Only in recent years has the art world turned its attention to the contributions of women artists working at the same time, including Lee Krasner, Jackson Pollock’s wife. This program explores the relationships of the artists, their work, and the enduring legacy in this revolutionary movement. This is a virtual program and registration is required.

Jane Oneail curates and delivers art appreciation programs to audiences throughout New England. Jane holds a master’s in Art History from Boston University and a master’s in Education from Harvard University. For more information, visit iamculturallycurious.com
