About the Event

Join us for this hour of storytelling! Psychiatrist and author Allan Chinen will lead us through the twists and turns of two fairy tales, each featuring elders as their main characters. How does elderhood affect the outcomes of these stories? What do these tales teach us about the possibilities inherent in aging that can return us to the senses of awe, wonder, and enchantment that were readily available to us in childhood? Bring your own wisdom into the conversation, and partake in the age-old experience of gathering together and being transported by the power of story.

Allan B. Chinen, MD is a psychiatrist in private practice in San Francisco and Clinical Professor Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco. He has lectured extensively and presented numerous workshops on the role of myths, fairy tales and legends on our life stories – the scripts we live out. He is the author of In the Ever After, Once Upon a Midlife, Beyond the HeroWaking the World, and Beyond the Hero: Classic Stories of Men in Search of Soul.
