Positive sides to getting older

Author Catherine McCann will launch her latest book titled 'Love Life: A Holistic Understanding of Ageing' at Shekina Sculpture Garden on Saturday, March 10.

'Love Life' is an update of the highly-acclaimed Falling in Love with Life, which was published in 1996. It is enhanced by the added wisdom and life experience on the process of ageing gained over the past 21 years by Catherine. The book presents the positive side to getting older and offers practical advice on how to make retirement an enjoyable time full of possibilities for personal enrichment and fulfilment.

Catherine is a physiotherapist, counsellor and spiritual director. In 1979 she bought a cottage in the Glenmalure Valley and created Shekina Sculpture Garden, a place for reflective days and celebrations.

Aged 20, she joined the Sisters of Charity and spent 25 years as a nun. She invited the State to take over Shekina Sculpture Garden 20 years ago and it's now owned by the National Parks and Wildlife section of the Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht. Dr Leitch will launch 'Love Life: A Holistic Understanding of Ageing' at 3.45 p.m. on Saturday, March 10, at Shekina Sculpture Garden. All are welcome to attend.
