Mastering The Art Of Ageing Well

Marcus+Pearce+presented+to+a+full+house+at+last+year%26rsquo%3Bs+seniors+forum+in+Wonthaggi+and+is+now+returning+to+Cowes.

Want to know what the secret is to aging well? To live with quantity and quality of life? To live independently, with vitality, vigour, energy, enthusiasm and complete love for your life?

After a packed house at his presentation in Wonthaggi last year, wellness and longevity researcher and speaker, Marcus Pearce, is returning to Bass Coast due to popular demand.

Presenting ’100 Not Out’ at the Cowes Cultural Centre on Thursday, 20 March from 10.30am until 12.30pm, Marcus will talk with seniors and provide a thought provoking and entertaining discussion on ageing well in today’s society

What makes one guy under 45 so passionate about longevity? Marcus sees the self-esteem of the aging process at an all-time low. People don’t want to grow old like their parents, are doing whatever they can to stay ‘forever young’, are hoping their genes will get them through, and denying their bodies and themselves the opportunity to transform through each phase of life.

“After a successful response last year, Council would like others to have the opportunity to hear this motivating and inspirational discussion,” Council Mayor, Neil Rankine, said.

“Council invites seniors who want to age well, who are suffering from boredom and loneliness and are interested in how they can improve the quality of their life.”

Jenny Merrick from YMCA will also talk about the benefits of physical exercise for seniors and how joining local community activities and programs can fulfil people’s lives.

This is a free event for seniors and a light lunch will be provided.

“We encourage people to bring a friend along and register early to ensure that there is a place for you,” Cr Rankine said.

RSVPs can be made by calling Mary-Anne Hunt on 1300 BCOAST (226 278) or email m.hunt@basscoast.vic.gov.au.
