WEDNESDAY 1/26/22 "Finding Meaning and Success: Living a Fulfilled and Productive Life" with Chris Palmer.
Author, speaker, wildlife filmmaker, grandfather, and retired professor Chris Palmer will give an entertaining presentation on how to improve your life. He serves on the Board of Montgomery Hospice, is writing a book on aging, death, and dying, is a hospice volunteer, and runs an “aging well” group for the Bethesda Metro Area Village. During his filmmaking career, he swam with dolphins and whales, came face-to-face with sharks and Kodiak bears, camped with wolf packs, and waded hip-deep through Everglade swamps. Inspired by his new book, Finding Meaning and Success: Living a Fulfilled and Productive Life, he will explore the goals, strategies, and tactics necessary to live a successful, fulfilled, and productive life. He will discuss what matters, consider how we find purpose and meaning, and examine how we can take better care of ourselves. The idea is to actively design our lives rather than drift forward, reacting to what happens to us. It is healthy to look at the person we have become and ask if this is who we want to be. We want to behave in ways true to our most honorable, generous, and best selves.
Chris Palmer has authored nine books, the latest published by Rowman & Littlefield in July 2021, and entitled Finding Meaning and Success: Living a Fulfilled and Productive Life. All proceeds from Chris’s books go to fund scholarships for students at American University.
Chris and his wife Gail have lived in Bethesda, Maryland, for nearly 50 years and raised three daughters. They now have nine grandchildren. Chris was a stand-up comic and has advanced degrees from London and Harvard. He has jumped out of helicopters, worked on an Israeli kibbutz, and was a high school boxing champion. Chris is currently learning to juggle, draw, dance, play tennis, and play the piano. He loves to stand on his hands for exercise, and he keeps a daily gratitude journal.
