OSHR 1311 - The Gift of Your Story: Writing a Spiritual Autobiography

  • Noncredit

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

In your own life - or in the life of an elder whom you cherish - are there profound tales of transpersonal significance? Within each of us, especially those who have lived into a season of relative freedom from the daily demands of the world, is a hidden wealth of wisdom and insight. This can become a legacy every bit as valuable as personal property. Discover, claim and preserve this important autobiography for yourself or a cherished elder.
