Anti-Aging About Us
Most people want to know something about the owner of a web site. This Anti-Aging About Us page offers you information about me and why I created this site. My name is Kate Lindemann. I am professor emerita in philosophy at Mount Saint Mary College, in Newburgh, New York
I enjoy reading research and like most college professors, published in my field.
When I was in my late 60's someone ran a red light and I wound up with a brain injury. I did much of my brain rehab on my own. (I could not drive to one of the better Cognitive Rehab centers and since earlier in my life I had taught very basic literacy and math skills, I used what I knew on myself.
Also, I had meditated for years (Taught the first undergraduate college course in the 8 basic forms of meditation) and so I used that knowledge to help me to recover.
Once I was able to read again, I began reading cognitive research and practiced many of the techniques cited in articles and books. It took a time but slowly I regained lost skills. That experience taught me that things ARE reversible - if you know what to do.
When I turned 70 I noticed when visiting nursing homes, that some residents were younger than I! Then , too, when I was 'out and about' I sometimes meet people in their late 70's or early 80's who looked younger and seemed 'more alive' than many 50 year olds. Something was at work besides chronological age. I decided to investigate Ageless Aging and all the things we can do to live well in our elder years.
This web site is the result of my reading research and learning from other elders. It is not that all the information is NEW. Some people have known these things for years.
It is more the case that popular culture has ignored the lives of those who are the Great Elders among us - just as it has ignored the cultures where Elderhood is treasured and where elders integrated into society. My hope is that in sharing information with you.....and by providing a place where you can share your art and your poetry or other writing us, that moore people will recognize the contributions of elders to our socieities..
I want this Anti-aging
