Review:

"In this radiant work, author Edmund Sherman suggests a more spiritual and peaceful way of living in the later years. He takes us on a journey through the timeless literature on contemplative traditions. Drawing on poets, psychologists, philosophers and mystics, he offers a range of contemplative practices to those in their later years." --Aging Horizons Bulletin

"People entering this new dimension in their natural life will find reading this book rewarding and it may contribute to an inner peace as they move forward withlife and the aging process. Contemplative Aging: A Way of Being in Later Life can help baby boomers coming of older age reflect on the past, deal in the present, and look forward to a realistic future."--Activities, Adaptation and Aging

Book Description Gordian Knot Books (imprint of Altschuler, Richard Associates, Inc), United States, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In modern societies people are expected to remain activity-oriented in their later years, rather than change to a more contemplative, spiritual, and peaceful way of living. The latter, however, is ideally-suited to people in later life and offers many healthful benefits. Dr. Sherman explains why this is so in Contemplative Aging-a book that shows the way to add a different and deeper dimension to the activity-oriented image of older age promoted in the media, and how to transcend the many physical decrements and emotional losses of loved ones in later life. Extensive research evidence exists for achieving such a way life-called gerotranscendence -which is clearly described in Contemplative Aging along with the psychological and philosophical foundations and practices that can lead to the existential and spiritual benefits of gerotranscendence. Based on the author s ongoing work with older adults and the timeless literature on contemplative traditions around the world-expressed by poets, psychologists, philosophers, mystics, and rationalists-Dr. Sherman presents a range of contemplative practice methods and exercises designed for those already sixty years or older and the millions of baby boomers about to enter their later years of life.
