The Secret Promise of Aging: Finding Meaning, Joy and Inner Peace as Years Fly By Paperback – November 13, 2013
|New from||Used from|
"A bright and insightful book, and actually useful for any age...can ease that glide path (of aging) considerably."
-- Ken Wilber, The Integral Vision
"Christopher Foster's collection of quotations and reflective essays is full of generous insight and truth-telling. Its graceful companionship will be welcomed by readers of every age."
-- Sharon Salzberg, author of Real Happiness and Lovingkindness
"Given that our flight from the ineluctable process of aging and mortality is the chief neurosis of our time, Christopher Foster's reflections are most welcome for they summon the reader to thoughtful reflection, to the courage of convictions, and to a more considered embrace of the wonder, terror and gift of this brief journey we call our lives."
-- James Hollis, Ph. D, Jungian analyst and author of What Matters Most: Living a More Considered Life.
