Neither Snow, Sleet nor Cold Dimmed The Light or The Joy At The Ageless Living Television Premier
State and City Offices, Business, University and School closings did not prevent an enthusiastic audience of about 400 invited guests, Convention Staff and volunteers from braving the elements on Thursday Night, January 16th to celebrate The World Premier of the new and inspiring, 40 Episode Ageless Living Television Series. The premier was co-hosted by NM PBS and AgeNation at the Santa Fe Convention Center as a gift to the community, to underwriters and sponsors, the production team and volunteers for their generous support of the three Ageless Living Conferences in 2018, a year of post-production in 2019 and now the launch of the series in 2020.
George and Sedena Cappannelli, AgeNation’s Co-Founders, Co-producers of the series and participating authors in the series welcomed the audience and shared one of the primary reasons they created the series. “To inform and inspire viewers and encourage them to remember that even in challenging times we have the opportunity to live more fully, love more deeply and not be limited by either the boundaries of time or the limited belief that one is ever too old or too young to live their dreams.”
Although the majority of 22 award-winning and best-selling authors in the series who share their inspiration and valuable life strategies are now dispersed around the world and could not be there for the Premier, Lee Zlotoff, Hollywood Producer and Writer and creator of the MacGyver Series, world renowned QiGong Master, Mingtong Gu and Joseph Gagnon, High Performance Athlete and Leadership Expert were able to join George and Sedena in representing the talented cast of authors.
The evening also featured Madi Sato, gifted indigenous singer and healer whose beautiful opening blessing to The Four Directions included the voices and hearts of all present. Madi also reminded the audience that snow is a sign that a new birth is being blessed. May it be so!
Randy Randall, Director of Tourism Santa Fe acknowledged that the series will serve the city by being a media ambassador to audiences all around the country for years to come. He also read a proclamation issued by Santa Fe Mayor Allan Webber declaring January 16th as Ageless Living Day.
Carol Sorensen, President of Empower New Mexico, a Santa Fe based, 501C3 and one of the underwriters of this breakthrough series, spoke briefly about Empower NM’s mission and invited individuals interested in supporting the organization as active board members, friends and donors to contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org. She also went on to acknowledge George and Sedena for their vision and dedication to their age-related mission and for creating the series.
Guests then had the opportunity to view inspiring video segments from the series. One of the evening’s guests reported that after viewing the segments her mother who is in her mid-70 and accompanied her said, “This makes me feel so uplifted. I don’t feel so old. I feel like there is a different way I can be.” (See link below for the author’s video.)
In closing the presentation portion of the evening, the Cappannellis also reminded the audience that NM PBS will begin airing the Series in New Mexico on Saturday, January 25th at 4:30 PM MT and in that time slot for the following 39 weeks. NM PBS is also distributing the series to local PBS stations all around the country and has just announced that the first 14 of the top 50 PBS stations in the county have already agreed to air the series starting in February. (More information about this shortly is a separate email.)
“And this, is only the beginning,” they said,” of the next exciting stage of this national initiative, that is designed to help young and old alike to “redefine what it means to live and age consciously and wisely in the 21st Century.” They announced the launch AgelesslivingSeries.com, the new web-platform that support viewers with featured author interviews, webinars, coaching and Q&A sessions, courses, podcasts and much more, and the launch of The Ageless Living Dialogue Series, free opportunities initially for people in Santa Fe and soon for people all across the country to participate in inspiring,
informative and collaborative sharings and community building evenings around topics of relevance and importance covered in the series.
