Our Ageless Self

As our physical bodies start presenting us with limitations, and for some more serious challenges, the feelings of vulnerability and presence of loss may increase.

Yet let’s look and feel deeper into the essential beauty – the soul – of the being who will always reside inside. The one who still dances, creates and dreams within us.

Watch the beauty and passion of this 102-year-old light up as she watches herself dancing in her younger years. We literally see her transform from a bed ridden elder into a vibrant “young woman self” as she dances her fingers on the sheets watching herself on film for the very first time.

Bet her body and heart remembers it all. Stay with it until the very end as there is a great “bathing story” that will make you laugh.

“I used to say to myself I am being paid to do something that I enjoy doing and I would do it for free. Because it just felt so good doing it. Because that music, you know. I just got carried away in it!”
