Dr. Meg Newhouse, author of Legacies of the Heart: Living a Life that Matters shares how we can be sure to make the most of the time we have on earth!
Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest Meg Newhouse discuss the following:
- What is the difference between a legacy as we’ve always defined it and “legacies of the heart”?
- Your book is subtitled “Living a Life that Matters.” Is it ever too late to start doing that?
- Why is it important to bring a legacy perspective into your life?
- How does a legacy perspective relate to good health – especially as we get older?
- Who is your prime audience? Who are you trying to reach with this book? Why?
In both her professional and personal life, Meg Newhouse has sought to call out “passion and purpose” in her students, coaching clients and even friends/colleagues. For the past 20+ years, she has worked with people in midlife and beyond to craft fulfilling and contributing lives; her interest and work in legacy evolved naturally over the past several years.
In 2002 she founded and co-led the Life Planning Network, a national community of professionals committed to a holistic model for helping people thrive in the second half of life; more recently she has been engaged with the Conscious Elders Network from its early stages.
Meg has helped plan five Positive Aging conferences and has written three how-to books, as well as co-edited LPN’s Live Smart After 50. Meg has many other passions – foremost, her family (including grandchildren) and friends – but also including music (as a serious amateur flutist), public policy, yoga, nature and all kinds of learning and personal/spiritual growth. She lives in the Boston area with her husband of 47 years.
