About-

How can you as a unique individual grow older in creative, life-enhancing ways? In On Growing Older, Eugene Bianchi provides a psycho-spiritual guidebook toward wisdom for every man and woman who wishes to age with purpose and grace. In twenty-four reflections, he explores such crucial issues encountered by every individual in the aging process as transforming work, remembering ourselves, developing respect, opening to creativity, living truthfully, making friends/enemies, letting go, peacemaking elders, reclaiming nature, dealing with loneliness, suffering, loving, hoping, forgiving, cultivating joy, and being religious. Each chapter concludes with practical techniques, imagery, and suggestions to help the reader meditate on and personalize the themes discussed. Artist Lee Lawson's illustrations set a contemplative tone and focus throughout this wise and helpful book.
