"To live in this world you must be able to do three things: to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go."

(Mary Oliver - Blackwater Woods)

When we are willing to show up for the full spectrum of the life cycle (including the second half), then we stop half-heartedly participating in life and start whole-heartedly experiencing life: the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful.  

Connecting with meaning in our lives provides strength for reckoning with the hardships that often accompany the aging process. This course provides tools that ease the load in some surprisingly simple ways.

Course Instructor

Deborah Grassman


Few people have been with 10,000 dying veterans; Deborah Grassman is one VA hospice Nurse Practitioner who has. Dying veterans taught her lessons about how to attain personal peace. Ironically, those lessons came from people who had been trained for war! As a result, a phenomenon known as “Soul Injury” has now emerged as a relevant healthcare issue for the public. She contends that 10,000 dying veterans have lessons that the rest of us need to learn! Deborah is the author of two books, Peace at Last and The Hero Within. She is a contributing author for four textbooks, has 25 published articles, and there are 5 documentary films featuring her work.
