Janet Gerson, Ed.D., 72, boldly explores her creative and intellectual passions through her work. After over two decades as a dancer, performance maker and community activist via her own dance company, Janet returned to Columbia University for a Doctorate in Education. She was the Co-Director of the Peace Education Center at Teachers College, Columbia University and currently serves as Education Director for the International Institute on Peace Education. Now, in her early 70s, Janet is emerging as an utterly exquisite painter.

How do you create a life where you run with all of your seemingly divergent passions? What does it take to notice our hidden inner seeds and nurture them into visibility and maturity?
