The speakers who will kickstart the conversation on Wednesday November 20th are:

Marie Cornellier
A mother, grandmother, a queer disabled woman who has processed her relationship with the Living through images and writing for at least three decades. Her main interests converged with her main issues: trauma, healing and togetherness. More recently she started sharing her poetry in diverse Montreal Open Mic locations.

For the last three years, she has given much of her attention to decolonize herself : as a mean to better understand our history and relationship with Indigenous Peoples here on Turtle Island / Canada; and as a process to deconstruct our ways of thinking and acting that are framed by oppression. A process that has greatly transformed her. She now gives workshops on decolonization from a settler point of view. Find Marie’s website here.

Diane Erickson
“The many stages of retirement: discovering meaning and fulfillment in present life”
14 years ago I retired from a teaching career. The journey of retirement has been full of ongoing changes leading to a discovery of what is most important to me.

Malaka Ackaoui– “How experimenting with art has brought health and new life.”
Bio: I practiced Urban Design and Landscape Architecture for 40 years before retiring. Cancer accelerated my retirement plan, but I am extremely grateful for my new life.
Although I have always loved arts, my work took me away from it. Now I am back and enjoy every minute of it, experimenting with drawing & painting (acrylic, watercolour, pastels), jewelry making, sewing, making art with school children, just to name a few.

Any opportunity to make art makes me happy.

The speakers who will kickstart the conversation on Wednesday October 23rd are:

Cleopatra Tesolin:
Mindful meditation and art, with a focus on representational drawing. The practice of being present, connecting to the breath and to “ observed subject/object” how the hand acts as an extension of the visual field.
“I have always kept close contact with the visual arts, either “hands on” or as a viewer. As a former kindergarten teacher the arts played a large and important part of the curriculum. I was always amazed how many children “just do it” for the sensory pleasure. The word “art” has a broader definition for me now, the realization and expression of an idea , material undefined and unlimited.”

Norma Gilbert:
Strategies for Healthy Memory.
“After working for almost twenty years in Social Gerontology as a researcher practitioner at the CIUSSS of west-Montreal I retired last year. I have always been fascinated by anything to do with the brain and memory and during my working years I co-authored a Memory Workshop called Jog your Mind for older people to help them keep their memory intact for as long as possible. There is a lot of misinformation around regarding the memory and people are always worried about dementia. My talk will center on how we can tell the difference when we notice changes we are experiencing in our memory is just simply a part the normal aging process or if it may be something more serious.”

The speakers who will kickstart the conversation on Wednesday October 9th are:

Arlyle Waring:
Life’s Tapestry – Weaving Past and Present
As we age many of us build on our early experiences and passions. Arlyle studied, lived and worked in China for three decades. That experience led her to a deeper appreciation of her own NDG community and also to an interest in Chinese culture. She was active in a number of NDG community projects – the Empress Theatre project, the Benny Farm Task Force and CARTES ETC – a retail store offering local arts. Currently, she is curating and running two ETSY online stores that offer the creations of local artists, vintage items from China and Canada, and more recently her own creations of jewelry from old Chinese coins. Combining these two interests, her community and China, have made this chapter of her life very satisfying.

Martha Gomez:
Formerly a biomedical engineer, she is a Qualified Teacher of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and has been practicing meditation and yoga for 14 years. Her extensive formal training and daily practice in Mindfulness has afforded her a deep understanding of its far-reaching benefits and subtle nuances; she had honed her abilities through extensive experience teaching Mindfulness to oncology patients in various healthcare facilities. She is passionate about aging consciously, finding inspiration, joy and living with enthusiasm, and eager to share this with you.

Kenneth Hillam:
an independent scholar with a background in agriculture, engineering and business. He is passionate about researching ideas for better health, housing and devices for disabled community members. His search led him to discover Mongolian Yurts as an an optimal design for accessible, inexpensive and flexible housing solutions that can be built by seniors themselves.
