Living and Breathing the Blue Zones Lifestyle.

Chip's note: Last year, I co-led a successful Blue Zones workshop with BZ founder Dan Buettner. Dan was so pleased with the experience that he suggested that his organization create a three-year partnership with MEA. Céline will be the lead faculty member along with our MEA-trained facilitators. We’re proud of this partnership since Blue Zones is arguably the best-known longevity company in the world.

Deathbed Regrets: We’ll Pass, Thanks.

Chip’s Thought: It excites me when a friend has a new book coming out as I know how much work is involved so I wanted to share this guest post from Jodi as this is the kind of book we should all read.

Connection is at the Heart of Community and Human Flourishing.

Chip’s Thought: It takes a lot of work to create MEA since we’re winging it as there aren’t that many models for a midlife wisdom school. On a challenging day, I’ll pull out Rob and Angie’s guest blog post as a reminder for why we do this. Thanks.

Chip’s Note: What a joy it was to meet Cassius at our first Black Modern Elder workshop a year and a half ago. We’re honored that he’s become an MEA facilitator and I appreciated that he volunteered to write this blog post.

From Shedding Locks to Inner Shine.

Chip’s Thought: MeiMei and I’ve been through the ups and downs of life. She’s like my kid sister so it’s hard to imagine she’s going through menopause.

Celebrating the Wisdom and Grace of Black Women in Elderhood

Chip’s Note: I love my dear friend Wanda who was in our first MEA beta group more than six years ago. We’ve created reggae music festivals, ventured to Burning Man, and will soon be living near each other part-time in Baja as she’ll be a resident in my co-founder Jeff Hamaoui’s Baja Sage community.
