Pat Samples: The Wisdom of the older body

I met Pat Samples when she was delivering a webinar for Sage-ing International on The Wisdom of the Body. The topic fascinated me, especially as it applied to an older audience. I began reading Body Odyssey: Lessons from the Bones to the Belly and was captivated by her personal journey and insights about developing a relationship with your body’s wisdom.

Pat is in the conscious aging business. She helps older people uncover the brilliance in their bodies, express their creativity, and connect with their spiritual essence—so they can live their older years as a creative force, with an unbridled sense of freedom. Pat coordinates a program called Aging With Gusto for the Vital Aging Network in Minnesota, and she is a certified leader for Essential Motion, a subtle approach to embodied awareness. She has master’s degrees in writing and human development.
