About the Author
Kyrié Carpenter is radically pro-aging and dementia positive. Her journey started with a question, “What better way to learn about life than in hindsight?” Many elders she met were mad, frustrated, sad and bored; these common human conditions exacerbated by years and circumstance. She began to notice those who rejected the process of aging were suffering more than those who embraced it. There is no shortcut or easy answer to alleviate the suffering of aging and dementia but there is a perspective shift that can help us. Kyrié calls this becoming a crone-in-training. Kyrié's passion for story led her to a career in film, studies in Depth Psychology, and ultimately her work with aging. She has performed in Dr. Bill Thomas' nationwide ChangingAging tour. Prior to this she worked with elders living in long-term care in San Francisco. In 2015 Kyrié traveled to all 50 states living in a van the culmination of which was founding a wellness center, Prosper. Kyrié blogs (Huffington Post & ChangingAging) and is a book author. She has a Masters in Counseling Psychology and wrote her thesis on the Anti-Aging myth in America.
