Mick Smyer, PhD, is a Professor of psychology at Bucknell University and the Founder of The Graying Green Project promoting intergenerational dialogue on climate change. He also plays a badass washboard! Listen to the end of our talk on how the generations see climate change differently to hear him play a bit of the Black & Blue Blues, plus me opining on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Green New Deal.
I met Beverly Nelson, Ph.D. and her partner Michael Bartlett in Mexico for New Year’s 2019, and fell in love with their work and mission. Their 8 week online, interactive video program, based on the work of Joseph Campbell, will help you make the decision to live abroad or not with clarity, confidence and much less stress. Plus now…it helps fund the show!
Whether you are considering a move abroad, or whether you decide to stay where you are, the online video course “Moving Abroad: A Hero’s Journey,” based on the work of the brilliant Joseph Campbell, will give you the insights and new capabilities on how to move forward into a richer and more fulfilling life.
Part 2 of my talk with Andrew Belser, professor of Movement, Voice, and Acting at Penn State, and creator of an award winning video program called FaceAge — a deeply moving work that challenges perceptions about what it means to be “old,” fosters introspection, and cross-generational connections. Listen as Andrew tells us more about the neuroscience behind FaceAge and a little bit about his personal story, including how an encounter with his older Uncle on a barn rooftop changed his life.
FaceAge is an award winning video program that weaves together interconnected chapters in which young adults and aging individuals reflect on life while studying and describing one another’s faces. But it’s more than just about intergenerational connection…it is about human healing, and there is nothing more deeply beautiful than that.
