"Homeboy Industries provides hope, training, and support to formerly gang-involved and previously incarcerated men and women allowing them to redirect their lives and become contributing members of our community.

They are welcomed into a community of mutual kinship [and] love...Full-time employment is offered for more than 200 men and women at a time through an 18-month program that helps them re-identify who they are in the world, offers job training so they can move on from Homeboy Industries and become contributing members of the community - knowing they count!"

Living Needs Aging: A Conversation with Ashton Applewhite

All aging is successful because otherwise you are dead. Living needs aging. There is no best or right way to age. Each of us will make different accommodations and find different meanings.

Living Needs Aging: A Conversation with Ashton Applewhite

In this interview ageism expert Ashton Applewhite discusses what she has learned over the course of her work. "People literally don't realize that it is no more acceptable to criticize someone on the basis of age than on the basis of anything else about themselves, I think the most important thing to think about is language-- because we live in a youth-oriented society, we tend to use young to equate with good things and old with bad things...I started interviewing people over eighty who worked. Everything I learned about these remarkable people I was meeting and from my own research completely contradicted all these notions I had about what it would like to be that old, about immobility, about the way you move through the world, the way you see yourself. I assumed that older people were depressed because they were really old and going to die soon. In fact, older people have better rates of mental health than young or middle aged people because of neurological changes that occur in the brain. It was hard for me to believe that people were less afraid of dying as they got older.... It is a function of the fact that the awareness that time is short doesn't fill people with dread; it makes them spend their time more wisely." { read more }

The Secret to Happiness Around the World

We are so achievement-oriented that we often surge right by the true value of relating to what's before us, because we think that accomplishing things will complete us, when it is experiencing life that will.

The Secret to Happiness Around the World

Despite the many differences in what constitutes happiness in countries around the world, there are some common threads.

Poet's and Sages Behind Closed Doors

Look for beauty in everyone you meet, and you'll find it. Everyone carries divinity within them.

Poet's and Sages Behind Closed Doors

Not all of us will reach old age. The lucky among us who aren't lost to disease, accident, or other unforeseen circumstances will have decades of adjustments to make as we age. We slow down, lines etch our faces, grey finds its way into our hair. At a certain point, it's likely that some of us will end up in care facilities -- whether due to the lack of surviving relatives to help, or simply because our care requires professional intervention. The aging process and all that it entails is often looked upon with fear or disdain. Lauren Grace Weldon takes a different perspective. In this piece she seeks out and finds, powerful stories, metaphors and messages in people who are approaching the sunset of their lives. { read more }
