This Soul*Sparks title from author Steven McFadden offers an engaging 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. Readers will be enriched.

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 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.”
