Osher Lifelong Learning Course Slates Evening Course on the Future

Beginning its fourth year at SSU, the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute has added an evening course especially designed to introduce working people to its program.

“Perspectives on the Future”, a lecture series featuring a variety of experienced instructors who have taught in Osher LLI, takes a serious look at what the future has in store. Each Wednesday evening in the Cooperage from 6:30-8:15 p.m. from Sept. 8 to Oct. 27, a different Osher LLI faculty member will explore the future from his or her specialty.

Bernie Goldstein will kick off the series with a talk about “The Future of Human Sexuality.” Nelson Kellogg will follow the next week describing three technological scenarios he sees as possible futures. Other long-time SSU faculty members who will be participating are Dan Markwyn looking at the future of California and Lou Miller discussing the prospects for democracy in America.

Two SSU Instructors--Zohra Kalinkowitz who will be looking at the future of spirituality and consciousness and Ann Neel who will talk about how she sees family and community evolving—will also be participating. The eight weeks will be rounded out by two Osher LLI instructors who teach at JFK University: Bill Garrrett theorizing about the social and economic consequences of the rising belief in reincarnation and Barry Martin looking into the issues surrounding planetary sustainability.

Admission to the eight-week “Perspectives on the Future” lecture series is $80. For information or to register, please call Johnna LaRue at (707) 664-4170. All eleven courses that Osher LLI will be offering this fall can be found at
