Lessons for Living Longer

  • Colonial Heights Presbyterian Church 2828 Southeast Stephens Street Portland, OR, 97214 United States (map)

Our March HDG gathering is inspired by the book The Blue Zones: Lessons for living longer from the people who have lived the longest by Dan Buettner. The idea for this book originated from a National Geographic study, looking at the regions of the world where people live long, healthy lives. These five regions of well-being have been dubbed “The Blue Zones”.

This month we will identify the features of healthy living that run across these cultures. Then, we will discuss ways we can adapt these traits to our own everyday lives.

You can find “The Blue Zones” in print form, digitally, and as an audio book. Both new and used copies are readily available. If you don’t read the book before we meet on March 15th, come anyway for the conversation!

$10 donation requested. No one will be turned away due to lack of funds
