Reverse the typical view of aging to one of joy and strength as you head into the third stage of life! Modern society has associated getting older with loss, fear, and debility. In contrast, ancient wisdom sees the potential for growth, vibrancy, and expansion as you are relieved of the daily duties of work and family and move into retirement. Scientific research now supports this time-honored view—that our bodies and minds are quite capable of vibrant health and happiness well into our our later decades of life.
Rather than feeling despondent or resigned to common symptoms of aging—joint pain, insomnia, memory loss, or incontinence—Carrie Demers, MD and Bill Ryan, PhD will inspire you with facts and tips from both modern research and ancient wisdom. You will come away feeling buoyant, enthused, and confident that your body and mind can remain strong and brilliant for many many years to come!
