Summary
"In Ageless Soul, Thomas Moore reveals a fresh, optimistic, and rewarding path toward aging, one that need not be feared, but rather should be embraced and cherished. In Moore's view, aging is the process by which one becomes a more distinctive, complex, fulfilled, loving, and connected person. Using examples from his practice as a psychotherapist and teacher who lectures widely on the soul of medicine and spirituality, Moore argues for a new vision of aging: as a dramatic series of initiations rather than a diminishing experience, a passage that each of us has the tools--experience, maturity, imagination--to enjoy in the fullest way. Ageless Soul addresses: the many paths of spiritual growth and learning that open later in life; the vital role of the elder and mentor in the lives of younger people; why melancholy is a natural part of aging, and how to accept it, rather than confuse it with depression; sex and sensuality; building new communities and leaving a legacy. Ageless Soul teaches readers how to embrace the richness of experience and how to take life on, accept invitations to new vitality, and feel fulfilled as they grow older."--Jacket
