More About This Title Teach Us to Number Our Days

English

A provocative compilation of insights on aging with wisdom, gathered from the great traditions of the world, and the insightful thinkers and writers of all ages. Critics laud this small treasure as "deft," "graceful," and "beautiful."

Throughout history most successful and long-lived civilizations have held a place of respect for elders, and have benefited from their life wisdom. By and large this tradition is missing today, to the detriment not only of elders but also of society.

This new Soul*Sparks title from author Steven McFadden offers a sagacious compilation of keys for adept aging.

True elders are people who have gracefully accepted the passage of time, integrated their life experience with deep understanding, and made the fruit of their long experience available to others.

But how does one do this? How does one become a true elder? This elegant compilation offers keys from wisdom keepers around the world, from all traditions, and from all eras of history.

“Clearly not everyone who becomes old also becomes an elder. But some do, and many more could…True elders are people who have gracefully accepted the passage of time, integrated their life experience with deep understanding, and made the fruit of their long experience available to others," writes author and editor Steven McFadden.

As reviewers have commented, this book is a “salutary collection of quotations which put the accent on the positive aspects of conscious aging and sharing wisdom with the world.”

I've been an independent writer since 1975 when I graduated from journalism school at Boston University. Since then I've been happily involved with my life's work writing, healing, and consulting. Over the years I have authored hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles and blog entries, and 15 nonfiction books.

I'm also privileged to be the author of an epic, nonfiction saga of contemporary America - Odyssey of the 8th Fire, freely available online at www.8thfire.net It is the true, epic saga of a historic pilgrimage for the earth across North America by people of all colors and faiths under the Sky Sign of the Whirling Rainbow. The 8th Fire arises from the deepest roots of our land. In it, circles upon circles, elders make a great and generous giveaway of the teachings they carry.

My work is unified under the conceptual umbrella of Chiron Communications: www.chiron-communications.com
