Independent Expression Radio: Conscious Aging – An Art Form

Brit Elders interviews Sherry Anderson.

ShirleyMacLaineI’m sitting in on IE Radio for Shirley this week as she will be traveling. My guest is: Sherry Ruth Anderson, Ph.D. is a writer and speaker who has spent the last decade studying conscious development in aging. Her most recent book is Ripening Time: Inside Stories for Aging with Grace.

She is the co-author of the best selling The Feminine Face of God: The Unfolding of the Sacred in Women and the category best seller The Cultural Creatives: How 50 Million People are Changing the World with Paul H. Ray.

Her short art film, A Woman’s Descent to the Sacred, was an official entry in the Mill Valley Film Festival in 2011 and can be downloaded from YouTube.com. Her documentary series with Paul H. Ray, “Changing Our Minds,” for the Canadian Broadcast Corporation, was the first documentary on consciousness in Canada.

In Canada, she chaired the Department of Psychological Research at the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry and was Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto Medical School. Her research from that period appears in over a dozen publications including her book with J.R. Martin, Crazy Talk: Studies in Schizophrenic Thought Disorder. She served as a senior research consultant to the National Institutes of Mental Health and the Medical Research Council of Canada.

Sherry served as Head Dharma Teacher at the Ontario Zen Center in the 70s and early 80s. Since 1990, she has studied the Diamond Approach to Spiritual Development® with A.H. Almaas and now teaches in the United States and Europe.

Her great interest these days is in exploring the deeper possibilities of inner development. In addition to teaching the Diamond Approach® she guides A Year of Delving Deeply, a teleconference for inquiry and reflection in Alaska, and a monthly teleconference with elders on the east coast of the U.S.
