BMAV is excited to offer an encore of Chris Palmer's free workshop on how to improve your life - Design Your Life for Success.

Chris Palmer is a husband, father, grandfather, author, film producer, speaker, and former professor. Over the past 40 years, he has spearheaded the production of more than 300 hours of original programming for prime-time television and the IMAX film industry, work that won him and his colleagues many awards, including two Emmys and an Oscar nomination. Chris was a Distinguished Film Producer in Residence at the AU School of Communication. There he founded and directed the Center for Environmental Filmmaking. Chris is also president of the MacGillivray Freeman Films Educational Foundation, which funds and produces giant screen IMAX films, the latest of which is National Parks Adventure with Robert Redford.Chris taught this class at American University to packed classes. Chris's 7th book was just published,  Finding Meaning and Success: Living a Fulfilled and Productive Life.

It consists of three weekly sessions on November 1, 8, and 15 at 6:30 pm via Zoom. Attendance at all three classes is encouraged.

The workshop explores the goals, strategies, and tactics necessary to live a successful, fulfilled, and productive life. We reflect on our lives, discuss what really matters to us, consider how we find purpose and meaning in our lives, explore life goals, think about our values, produce personal mission statements, examine how to take better care of ourselves, and learn effective time management skills. The idea is to actively design our lives rather than simply drift forward reacting to what happens to us. It is healthy to look at the person we have become and ask if this is really who we want to be. We want to behave in ways that are true to our most honorable, generous, and best selves.

This program is co-sponsored by Sibley Memorial Hospital Senior Services and is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Register at or email or call 202-364-7602 before Oct. 27.
