Mother as a Verb: A Lively Conversation!

Mother as a Verb: A Lively Conversation!Saturday, May 2, 2020
Time:
9:30 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Location: This event will take place through Zoom!
Restricted to members only
Members: FREE

Traditionally, the month of May celebrates Mothers. One can become a “mother,” but one cannot be forced to “mother.” Mother, as a verb, is a choice.  Whether you have mothered, been mothered, or longed to be mothered, mothering plays a key, and sometimes complex role in our lives.

Drawing on Gloria Steinem’s essay, “Mother as a Verb,” from her book, The Truth Will Set You Free, But First It Will Piss You Off, members are invited to engage in a conversation about all things related to the verb, mother.

When mother is a verb, the very best of human possibilities come into our imagination. As we approach Mother’s Day, we invite you to join us as we reflect on the impact of this verb. Together, we’ll share funny and touching stories, and much more.

SAVE THE DATE!  Vibrant Women: Aging Reimagined

Thursday, June 11, 2020
Time:
5:30 p.m. mingle; 6:00-7:15 p.m. program
Location: 520 S. State Street, Chicago (Hospitality Suite on MR level)
Check back later for more details

Join us for an inspiring event as TTN members Catherine Marienau and Gail Zelitzky debunk the myths associated with aging, and reimagine what aging vibrantly actually entails. Catherine and Gail host a weekly podcast “Women Over 70: Aging Reimagined” with vital women in their 70s, 80s and 90s who shatter the conventional notions of women in later life as invisible, unappealing and irrelevant. They’ll share all that they’ve learned and help you set compelling intentions for a life full of possibilities and promise.

In this interactive session, Catherine and Gail will show you how to identify and dismiss myths and stereotypes that limit your sense of vital aging. You’ll learn how to create images of aging vibrantly into your next decades and develop your own strategies for aging reimagined.

You won’t want to miss this powerful event that can ignite a vision for your life as a vibrant woman.
