Legacy of Wisdom: Anna Halprin
The Legacy of Wisdom projects focuses on Wisdom as a central theme of life and aging. As such, the non-profit project tries to touch upon many issues common to an aging generation – no matter what age you are now!

Anna continues to perform, travel and teach with fervor. Anna gets the most out of her life, living by her adage “Aging is like enlightenment at gunpoint”.
