"Moore's message is resonant...he calls on readers to discover, realize and act on their untapped resources for creativity, expression, building community and forging a meaningful legacy for future generations." — The Wall Street Journal This program is read by the author Thomas Moore is the renowned author of Care of the Soul, the classic #1 New York Times bestseller. In Ageless Soul, Moore offers to listeners a fresh, optimistic, and rewarding path toward aging, one that need not be feared, but rather embraced and cherished. In Moore’s view, aging is the process by which one becomes a more distinctive, complex, fulfilled, loving, and connected person. Using examples from his practice as a psychotherapist and teacher who lectures widely on the soul of medicine and spirituality, Moore argues for a new vision of aging: as a dramatic series of initiations, rather than a diminishing experience, one that each of us has the tools—experience, maturity, fulfillment—to live out. Subjects include: *Why melancholy is a natural part of aging, and how to accept it, rather than confuse it with depression *The vital role of the elder and mentor in the lives of younger people *The many paths of spiritual growth and learning that open later in life *Sex and sensuality *Building new communities and leaving a legacy Ageless Soul will teach listeners how to embrace the richness of experience and how to take life on, accept invitations to new vitality, and feel fulfilled as they get older.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“After reading this beautifully and eloquently written book, getting older seems much more like a blessing than a curse! Thomas Moore convinces us that we age best when we embrace our age, live agelessly, and remember every day to find the endless joy nestled inside our soul.” Dr. Rudolph E. Tanzi, author of Super Brain
“Destined to become a classic, Ageless Soul brilliantly illuminates one of life’s most enduring mysteries: ‘Why—and how—do we grow old?’ A pioneer pointing the way forward to a new world of aging, Thomas Moore reveals the land beyond middle age as both a culmination of experience and a summons to adventure and exploration…A precious book to keep for ourselves, and to give to friends and family of all generations, Ageless Soul offers a richly textured vision of how, in Moore’s own words, to ‘age well.’” Pythia Peay, author of American Icarus
“With warmth, intimacy, and rare depth of wisdom [Moore] guides his readers through each of [aging’s] stages. Grounded in years of psychological research and spiritual reflection on the human enterprise, this wonderful book lays out for us what it is to live a full and creative life all the way to its end. This book should be read by everyone but especially by those for whom the very thought of aging is depressing. This book can change their minds.” SIster Joan Chittister, author of The Gift of Years
“In this profound and moving meditation upon aging, Thomas Moore offers us the keys to living well. Anyone facing the second half of life can gain from this lovely book a measure of wisdom and serenity.” Ralph White, author of The Jeweled Highway
