Week Four :: July 13–19

The New Map of Life: How Longer Lives are Changing the World — A Week in Collaboration with the Stanford Center on Longevity

Do we really want to live forever? While being “forever young” may still be the stuff of dreams, longer lifespans are a reality of modern life. Living to 110 years old — at least — means new challenges for both individuals and society; how we meet those challenges will have lasting ramifications.

  • What issues do longer lifespans present? We examine the political, the financial, the biological, the emotional.
  • Where the scientific meets the ethical, we ask: We can live longer, but should we? Will longer lives exacerbate existing inequities?
  • This isn’t a question for future generations — this is a question for us, right now. How are you going to adapt in this changing reality?


Interfaith Lecture Theme :: Falling Upward: A Week with Richard Rohr, OFM

During a week focused on the increasing life span of human beings, Fr. Richard Rohr will be our guide to what he calls the “further journey,” a voyage into the mystery and beauty of healthy spiritual maturity. Revisiting thoughts from his book, Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life, Fr. Richard helps us to understand the tasks of the two halves of life and teaches us that what looks like “falling down” can largely be experienced as "falling upward."
