Ageless Soul: The Lifelong Journey Toward Meaning and Joy

by Moore, Thomas (Author)

ISBN: 9781250141002

Thomas Moore is the renowned author of Care of the Soul, which spent forty-four weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and showed how spiritual practice can heal personal and societal problems. In Ageless Soul, Moore reveals a fresh, optimistic, and rewarding path toward aging, one that need not be feared, but rather 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 medicine and spirituality, Moore argues for a new vision of aging: as a dramatic series of initiations, rather than a diminishing experience, one that each of us has the tools-experience, maturity, fulfillment-to embrace. Subjects include: *Why melancholy is a natural part of aging, and how to accept it, rather than confuse it with depression and resort to medication *The vital role of the elder and mentor in the lives of younger people *The many paths of spiritual growth and learning that open later in life *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, embrace invitations to new vitality, and feel fulfilled as they get older. Aging means living into life. Summer 2019 Author Tours - Adult
