The Seven Graces of Ageless Aging (Softcover book)
The Seven Graces of Ageless Aging synthesizes and simplifies the components of conscious aging into a primer for individuals who are concerned about their own aging process and for those caring for the elderly who seek an enlightened understanding of how all of us may approach aging more consciously and, gracefully. In short, these Seven Graces can serve as stepping-stones toward attaining emotional or spiritual wholeness as we age.
Jason has interviewed and highlighted the stories of a dozen individuals in their late seventies, eighties, and nineties, and one over one hundred. Each of these remarkable individuals, in his or her way, has refused to accept the timeworn script that equates old age with decrepitude. Instead, they have chosen to rewrite the script and embrace old age with dignity and grace. Listening carefully to their stories and insights inspired me and quieted my own fears about aging. They have become the Pathfinders, the modern-day sages, who share their wisdom and experiences throughout this book. Click to visit in our store.
