Documentary – Inspiring Elders

INSPIRING ELDERS

>>CLICK HERE TO LISTEN TO THE SHOWS<<

The aim of this series is to address the way we perceive the older generation. Through the ancient art of storytelling and heartfelt conversations with representatives from the Shamanic, Druidic, Ancient Celtic and Ayurvedic traditions, we will be brought back to the times when “Elders” were understood to radiate wisdom and honoured because of the depth of their experiences and their huge value to the “clan”.
Some of our Irish Elders will then be introduced to our listeners to share their knowledge and wisdom. They were chosen because of their age and level of expertise in their chosen fields. The majority of the “elders” interviewed are aged between 60 and 90. These include a University Professor of gerontology, medical doctors, an Ayurvedic doctor, a naturopath, an homeopath, a psychologist, a psychotherapist, professional dancers, representatives from positive ageing agencies in Ireland, a drama teacher, a nun, a shop owner, writers, a member of a mixed Catholic community, spiritual teachers, musicians, a retired banker, tango dancers, and healers, all of whom live their golden age to the full and bring valuable gifts to society.
This documentary will awaken the listeners to the broad spectrum of activities in which Senior Irish Citizen engage, developing new skills and making the most of the expertise they have gained through the University of Life.
Each programme will consist of a, signature tune, introduction to the topic, interviews with the contributors, musical and poetic interludes. Some programmes will also provide a meditation guide for listeners. The final programme will look back on the series and what we have learnt

Each programme will consist of the following;
