This guide answers requests made on our 70candles.com blog. Women near and in their 70's have asked for opportunities to discuss, with their age-mates, issues important to them. This booklet will help you create, host, and facilitate 70Candles! Gatherings in your geographic area. Our book, 70Candles! Women Thriving in Their 8th Decade, published by the Taos Institute, identifies and discusses themes and topics that we've found matter most to women our age in this unique era of extended longevity. These topics are wonderful catalysts for rich discussion. We've discovered how much women enjoy talking with each other about common-held issues-joys and challenges-and we've seen how important other women are to a sense of well-being as we age. In the pages that follow you will find guidelines and suggestions for conducting a "somewhat organized" gathering. These ideas will be useful, whether you meet just once or continue on a regular basis over time. We hope you find the conversations as lively and heartfelt, poignant and inspiring, as we have. Be ready to laugh a lot and perhaps shed a few tears, all in the company of your age-mates.

Are you a former music-maker who yearns to return to music, but aren't sure where to begin? Or are you a person who never played music as a child but you are now curious about trying? You're not alone. Many adults who used to play an instrument haven't touched it in years because either they can't find the time to practice, are afraid their skills are too rusty, or are unsure of what kind of group they could join. Others are afraid to sing or start playing an instrument because they received negative feedback from childhood experiences. Performing, practicing, and composing music may seem like unattainable goals with insurmountable obstacles for busy adults with non-musical careers. Making Time for Making Music can help adults find ways to make music part of their lives. The first book of its kind, it is filled with real-life success stories from more than 350 adults who manage to fit music-making into their jam-packed schedules. They polished rusty skills, found musical groups to join, and are having a great time. Their testimonies prove that you are never too old to learn to make music, and that there are numerous musical paths to explore. Featuring advice from dozens of music educators, health care professionals, and music researchers who point out that making music can even be good for your health as well as an extensive resource list of websites, organizations, and summer programs, this book offers inspiration and tried-and-true strategies for anyone who wishes to return to music-making or begin as an adult.
