Free Talk on Conscious Aging at Brookline Library

Vivienne Simon,JD

Vivienne Simon, JD, certified life coach and author, will present Conscious Aging: Designing the Rest of Your Life, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., April 28, at the Brookline Library. The free workshop, designed for people age 50 and older, includes a presentation, exercises and discussion, with individual laser coaching for anyone interested.

“The post-midlife years offer tremendous possibility for a very rich next chapter of life,” says Simon. “Beyond focusing on living longer, healthier lives, the possibility is also there to grow emotionally, psychologically and spiritually in deeply satisfying ways and engage a newfound sense of purpose.”

Simon says the workshop will help participants to proactively design a meaningful life and choose how they want to address the life events of these later years. “Many people struggle with the transition to unstructured time, new health concerns, lack of purpose, and are looking for help finding their direction and making the best use of their time at this age,” she says. “Some also feel great distress at the state of the world and want to make a meaningful contribution that might not have been possible earlier in life.”

Cost: Free. Location: Brookline Library Main Branch, 361 Washington St., Brookline Village. For more information, call 617-212-3222 or visit or
