The 20th Anniversary Celebration

Thomas Moore

2008 is a busy, eventful year for the Center! This new interactive web site is finally ready after many years of planning and preparation, we are moving to the OLLI National Resource Center in the brand new Wishcamper Center on the Portland campus, and we have changed our name from the Center for the Study of Lives to the Life Story Center.

To celebrate these 20th anniversary milestones, Thomas Moore spoke on October 15 on "Narrative, Dream, and the Life of the Soul" — how we can find the meaning and shape of our lives by looking at our dreams and considering the stories we tell of our lives, our family, and the places we have been.

This talk is now available in podcast on MPBN On-Demand.
