Honoring the Art of Our Lives

Dr. Dorian Mintzer, owner of RevolutionizeRetirement.com, a Boston retirement speaking and coaching firm, released a new book, Honoring the Art of Our Lives. The book is an interview with Alan C. O'Hare, a community psychologist, university educator, actor, playwright, and director. This is Volume 1 of the Revolutionize Your Retirement Interview Series.

In this interview, O'Hare discusses his journey as a community psychologist, university educator, actor, playwright, and director all woven together in his calling and artistry as a "Seanchai/storyteller." These skills are also integrated into being a "curator" who highlights moments from a person's life that can be honored through the art of a story, a journal, a performance piece, music, dance, or visual art form. O'Hare believes that we reach a time in our lives during the third stage when we still envision what we still seek to accomplish or discover, but more of our lives are devoted to reflections about the journey that has brought us to this point. His model can also be adapted to the life journey of a family, clan, community, or culture.

Alan C. O'Hare is both a Celtic storyteller and a Seanchai storyteller. He has an incredible history at the Centre for Community Counseling and Education and was the director of the Girls Center in Walpole, Mass. O'Hare has done consultation in addition to training, instructional design, organizational development work, educational media, as well as community development work. He is a gifted playwright and has both acted and written many plays, and is the author of Love, Mary B: A Teacher's Gift.
