Whether we understand our younger years as particularly joyful or particularly difficult, we can often recall our childhood moments alone, where we felt most joyful or most engaged doing something that completely made sense to us, even if its value was not recognized by the people around us. In this five-week course, participants will be asked to think deeply and discuss those most engaging and joyful moments, as well as the experiences around those moments. What many of us find is that the things that we intuitively loved to do as very young people are some of the same things that call to us many years later. The purpose of this course is to delve into those past experiences, explore how those experiences guide us now, and think about how those experiences may best guide us in the future. Consider this course as a place to consider present and future possibility based on past experience.
Kelly Limes Taylor, PhD does many things, including think, teach, and write. She also likes internally narrating her life as if it's a novel, as well as imagining new ways to live and then living them. She's mostly good at mothering, too.
Kelly's published multiple articles and book chapters, and presented at even more conferences -- but she doesn't remember all those details, so you may want to check out ourcontingence.net for the list.
Kelly currently lives in the northwest corner of Georgia with her children, two dogs, and the cat -- who is her mortal enemy -- and said cat's growing family. Besides enjoying her family and home, Kelly reminds adults of the validity of their own wisdom and knowledges.
Kelly has just been introduced to dried figs and is enjoying them so far, though she's sure she'll overdo it soon.
Also, she is happy.
