The Essential Spirit
Providing Wholistic Services to and with Older Adults
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Don Koepke has performed a great service to practitioners in gerontology by compiling this volume of enlightening, thoughtful essays by a group of authors who know what they write about and offer both theoretical foundations and practical guidance. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to provide more meaningful care to those who are facing the challenges of growing older."
--Stephen Sapp, Professor of Religious Studies Emeritus, University of Miami
"Affirming that our journeys into old age will be uniquely our own, Donald Koepke and the collective of wisdom-filled authors of The Essential Spirit, remind us - whether we crumble or thrive in the process of aging we can ultimately find meaning and transformation. This book is an encouraging, enlightening guide for all those who desire to accompany people who are privileged to grow old through doorways leading us into our respective spiritualities."
--Jade C. Angelica, author of Where Two Worlds Touch: A Spiritual Journey Through Alzheimer's Disease
