Greetings, Aging-In-Community Co-creators and cohousing seekers around Berkeley-Oakland. I'd like to invite you to join me for a light reception with people looking at Aging In Community: Senior Cohousing, Beacon Hill Villages, Elders' Guild and more. With some surprise guests from thousands of miles away. Please join us Wednesday, co-sponsored by The Elders' Guild, at the EBCOHO clubhouse. RSVPs are appreciated, but not required, please do spread the word. Aging In Community / Elders' Guild / Audacious Aging reception 5-7 PM Wednesday, April 29, 2009 at the East Bay Cohousing clubhouse in downtown Berkeley near BART [masked] This reception celebrates not just the growth of the Village movement in general and honors the BHV and other village organizers who traveled out to support us, but it also marks the release of a new hot-off-the-press book, Audacious Aging, in which my "Aging In Community" chapter talks about Villages and cohousing. Bring $20 (the wholesale price) (or $100 to join EBCOHO for a year and get the book and tour discounts and event discounts and coaching and more thrown in) if you'd like a signed copy of this new hardback featuring chapters by Andrew Weil, Christiane Northrup, Deepak Chopra, Dominick Dunne, Gabrielle Roth, Gloria Steinem, Helen Gurley Brown, Howard Zinn, Jean Shinoda Bolen, Lena Horne, Patch Adams, Ram Dass, and Reb. Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, among others. We'll have local members of the Elders' Guild joining us as well. We'll have some light refreshments, perhaps some music, a chance to unwind, meet other villagers from all over. I look forward to seeing some of you there. If you can't make to the event, fear not: if you order the book through us, we can provide free bicycle delivery in the greater Berkeley area!
