Notice: Please do NOT enrol on this course on impulse, thinking you might watch it later. Maybe show an interest on impulse, yes, but before you enrol, watch the Preview videos, read the Course Description and then make a decision. If you then enrol then please start the course as soon as possible. Watch the lectures, look at the workbooks and join in the discussions. Joining my courses is a serious business and I want you to get the most out of your study – but I also want you to enjoy the course.
That is why I am asking that you only enrol because you really want to and that you start the course intending to make full use of all the resources.
You will be very welcome.
This is a rich, varied course narrated by Peter Thomas (aged 80!!!) who at the time of the recordings, had spent nearly six decades in the acting industry. He brings to the course a gravitas that is a mixture of research, personal anecdotes, humour and every so often a whiff of sadness.
This is a course about some of the problems that old age brings – and what can be done, what Peter has done, to deal with them.
There is something in this course for everyone – and the elderly relatives of everyone! Even if you are not in the UK, 99% of the course will still apply to you.
We all have our own ways of getting through life but as we age our ability to fight the ravages of time, the boredom, the ill health, diminish.

This course will enable you to cope with old age that little bit better…in fact, quite a lot better!
If you like film and theatre you will be amused and interested by the anecdotes*. The background of the Instructor – Peter Thomas – makes this course absolutely UNIQUE. Look forward to old age with hope, with optimism and desire – not fear. Also use the workbook that comes free with this course to record your journey to happiness and fulfillment.
*Even if you have no interest in cinema or theatre there is still a lot in this course for you – especially as you are continually advised, encouraged even, to contribute to the forum.
Let’s share ideas!
Note: this course is the end product of a period of co-operation between Peter Thomas and Chris Sivewright . A joint effort from two old codgers!
