Join us for a Lunch & Learn event, presented by The Jung Center’s Community for Conscious Aging. Bring your lunch to an hour that always provides food for thought.

Grab a couple of sheets of paper and a pen. Join us with a curious, open, playful heart and mind. In this fun and interactive workshop, Karen Waldman, PhD, a licensed psychologist for more than 25 years, will walk participants through thought-provoking exercises to help them not only identify their most important values, but commit to take purposeful action to create their most joyful, meaningful life ever (because it’s NEVER “too late!”).

This livestreaming program can be taken from home or anywhere with an internet connection. If you register, you will be emailed viewing instructions either the evening before or the morning of the event. Please be sure to check “spam” and “junk” folders!

This class will be recorded, and will be made available on the Community for Conscious Aging website.

All times are CDT. Please contact with any questions.

Please register early. Programs with four or fewer participants are subject to cancellation, 48 hours prior to their start.

About the instructor

Karen Waldman

In her previous life, Karen Waldman studied child development and taught preschool in Germany. Then, while in grad school at the University of Houston, she worked as Director of the UH Center for Students with disABILITIES. She completed her psychology internship at UT Medical School in Houston, then did a one-year postdoctoral fellowship in geriatric psychology at the VA hospital before joining the faculty. Karen spent almost 20 years there—serving veterans and their families, teaching, and supervising psychology trainees and Baylor College of Medicine psychiatry residents. After retiring, Karen joined her husband in part-time private practice, where she primarily specializes in relationship counseling and health psychology. Karen also stays busy writing (she has several stories published in the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series and is currently working on a book called “Self-Help for Couples” with her husband), serving on the CCA Steering Committee, leading groups, cooking, and savoring nature, but she mostly enjoys spending time with her soulmate, four kids, four acquired kids, 10 grandchildren, other family members and good friends.
