Tell Congress to Oppose Any Tax Bill That Would Increase Taxes for Seniors! Take Action Now


Turning Wisdom Into Action

Living longer, changing society.

“People don’t like to be called seniors, elders, old…but one term that people like that they associate with growing older is ‘wisdom,’” says influential author Mary Catherine Bateson.

In Composing a Further Life, Bateson, daughter of renowned anthropologist Margaret Mead, rethinks the way we talk about aging and proposes a new stage in the life cycle called Adulthood II – a time characterized by wisdom, experience and continued vitality. Bateson talks about the opportunities that come along with increased longevity and how this new life stage has the potential to change the world.


Bateson also discusses Composing a Further Life with Mike Cuthbert in this one-hour Prime Time Radio special. Bateson talks about how she interviewed six older Americans, including Jane Fonda, to find out how they are actively seeking new and exciting ways to live life to the fullest.
