    TAA041: Can My Feet Support Me As Well As My Hands Have?

    Summary:

    Join Lee as he continues to share his insights and experiences in handling the challenges of aging. In this episode, he shares the difficulties of going blind in one eye. Aging forces us to accept who we are becoming. The question is: How are we dealing with those challenges? Are we sidelined by them, or do we choose to see these as opportunities to learn more about ourselves and the possibilities that our inevitable aging bring? Lee goes into his personal history in facing medical trauma, knowing that the master is not the one who has the best circumstance, but one who makes the best from any circumstance. Lee firmly believes that you cannot have bad without good. They are flip sides of the same coin. As he promised, Lee allows his listeners and Insider's Club members to follow along with his aging journey as he explores these somber adventures with acute glaucoma and blindness in his right eye.

    "The Aging Academy teaches that growing older has a legitimate reason and purpose in our culture, and in all cultures." - Lee Mowatt

    One of the primary testing tools of  opthalmologists is the Visual Field Test which measures how wide of an area each eye can see when you focus on a central point. It helps create a detailed map of where you can and can’t see in your field of vision. The following links give more information on this testing tool.

    After receiving the news that I had suffered significant vision loss in my right eye, and realizing the importance of preserving all the vision I possibly could in my left eye, my doctors told me, in no uncertain terms, that I had to stop being upside down. I wanted to commemorate the accomplishments of the past 15 or so years of doing handstands and headstands around this great country of ours. I offer this video to memorialize the "Hand-Prints" I have left behind as part of my journey before I begin the next part ... On my feet.

    TAA040: Who You WERE vs. Who You ARE40

    TAA040: Who You WERE vs. Who You ARE40

    Summary:

    Lee is back, this time to explore how our thoughts evolve with us. More specifically, this episode discusses the human value system and how it typically changes with the years. Human values are the virtues that guide us to take into account the human element when we interact with other human beings. They determine how we feel and treat others on a small and large scale. These values help us to determine what is right or wrong in our lives. Lee has observed that our values (e.g. Achievement, Hedonism, Security, Conformity, Tradition, Power, etc.) changes as we age. He offers 4 introspective questions (See below in the timestamps section) whose answers reveal who you were, as well as whom you have become in relation to your values. He also shares his own answers to these questions to show the changes that have occurred in his thinking over the past 25 years. Listen and join Lee in a powerful tool to help you forgive your past and chart a brighter future.

    "But most of us, not all, leave our youthful thinking behind in the same way and for the same reason, we leave speedos and bikinis behind. They just don't fit our values anymore." Lee Mowatt
