Dr Edward Kelly - What are you going to do and be in your Third Act?

  • Talbot Hotel (Stillorgan Park) Stillorgan Road Dublin, Dublin Ireland (map)

Human longevity has created a new Third Act in our lives as different to our second act as our second act was to our first. We are now living 25-30 years longer than our great-grandparents, the equivalent of a whole new adult lifetime. What was old age for them is now middle age for us. Never before have so many people lived for so long; two-thirds of those who have ever lived over the age of 65 are alive today. So what are you going to do and be in this new Third Act of your life?

In the second act of our lives, we tend to believe that with the right plan and sufficient willpower we can achieve all that we want. The Third Act invites a different approach. Consider that The Third Act of your life is not something that you acquire; rather it is something that ensues from your engagement in meaningful activities, relationships and practices. So what meaningful activities, relationships and personal reflective practices will open the window to your new Third Act?

If you are interested in what this Third Act means for you and would like to explore what you are going to do and be in this new third Act of your life, come and join us on the 10th May in The Talbot Hotel, Stillorgan, Dublin. You can read more about the work of The Third Act at
