Embracing Wisdom: Soaring In the Second Half of Life

By Malka Drucker & Nadya Gross

Here is the first handbook to help you discover how to access the secrets of the second half of life. The reward is wisdom, serenity, and deeper self-knowledge. In the first half of life we strive, work, compete, achieve, and accumulate. Will we do this until we die? Because we live in a world that worships youth, aging in America isn’t pleasant; we have no imagination for the spiritual adventure that aging offers. While Embracing Wisdom doesn’t shirk from the real challenges of this time of life, it points to a new understanding of how to experience loss not as tragedy but as compost for wisdom. Based upon the pioneering work of Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, Embracing Wisdom: Soaring in the Second Half of Life presents aging in the 21st Century as the newest frontier in human development. It sets a path and purpose for the boomer generation to complete life successfully and leave a legacy to future generations.
