Ageless Soul: The Lifelong Journey Toward Meaning and Joy

We rated this book:


If anyone you know is aging — or if you plan on aging — this is the most wonderful book. This is a guidepost on all the pitfalls and joys one might expect from becoming an elder in our society. In the United States, old age is considered a liability, so when one is over sixty, most find that the end of their working career is imminent. What does one do with the end part of one’s life? How does one find meaning in the face of loneliness and disability? How does one remain vital and continue to contribute? All of these questions and many more are addressed in this thoughtful book.

There are plenty of personal reflections and stories about making this transition. There are also stories about his patients, mentors, and friends and their journey in adjusting to this new phase of life. This is a very spiritual book. The book includes practices such as mediation and acceptance that can pave the way to greater wisdom and productivity in later years. It is extremely well written. There is an index for referencing specific topics such as sex, vitality, and regret. For anyone contemplating a new start in the new year, this book is invaluable.
