From Aging to Eldership Video

May 26, 2017 | Nader Shabahangi

This presentation was given at a recent dinner hosted by the Center for Elder Independence and the Fund for Elder’s Independence. This video, from Nader’s recent eldership presentation at CEI, is about changing our perception of aging, reframing the conversation from about getting old to getting mature and opening ourselves up to the concept of Elder as a role and engaging in Eldership practices.

“I Like to Listen”: The Need for Eldership in Challenging Times

January 17, 2017 | Nader Shabahangi

It is the middle adult who calms the temperament of two people about to get into a fight. Since becoming older does not automatically create an elder – it does not automatically create the skills needed for eldership – we often need to acquire them. We learn to understand how people communicate, connect with one another, exchange experience and knowledge, and feel heard.
