With pleasure, I announce the publication through Soul*Sparks Books of Teach Us to Number Our Days: A Compilation of Keys for Adept Aging (2nd ed.).
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.
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 – a book drawing on the wisdom of all cultures and all times – 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.”
The book is available now from Smashwords in 10 different ebook formats, and can be read on any ebook reader or digital device, including tablets, smartphones, and computers. Just select the format that works for you. It is also now available for Kindle readers from Amazon.com and will soon be available in the Apple ibook store and through other major retailers.
