Learn to use your later years for awakening and spiritual growth. Encouraging, inspiring, and practical, The Grace in Aging invites all those who have ever experienced spiritual longing to awaken in their twilight years. Since aging, in and of itself, does not lead to spiritual maturity, The Grace in Aging suggests and explores causes and conditions that we can create in our lives, just as we are living them, to allow awakening to unfold -- transforming the predictable sufferings of aging into profound opportunities for growth in clarity, love, compassion, and peace. Kathleen Dowling Singh streamlines vast and complex teachings into skillful means and wise views. Straightforward language and piercing questions bring Singh's teachings into the sharp focus of our own lives; the contemplative nature of each chapter allows for an uncommon depth of inquiry. Examples from our lives and from the chatter in our own minds touch the reader personally, offering the chance to absorb the implications deeply and do the work of freeing his or her own mind. Ecumenical in spirit, tone, and language, Singh offers wisdom from teachers from a variety of spiritual backgrounds: Thich Nhat Hanh, the Apostles, Annie Dillard, and more. Lessening our attachments, decreasing our aversions, unbinding what binds us, we bear witness to the possibility of awakening for all beings. The Grace in Aging offers guidelines for older individuals of any wisdom tradition who wish to awaken before they die; no need for caves or seven-year retreats. This is spiritual practice for the lives we live.

Richard Rohrs Buch über die spirituelle Dimension des Älter- und Reiferwerdens: Was ist von Bedeutung auf der Lebensreise? Während Menschen in der ersten Hälfte in Beruf und Partnerschaft an der »Form" ihres Lebens arbeiten, rückt in der zweiten Lebenshälfte dessen »Inhalt" in den Mittelpunkt. Darüber entscheiden nicht zuerst Altersstufen, sondern vor allem Erfahrungen des Loslassens und wie wir damit umgehen - auf dem Weg zu unserem »wahren Selbst".

An invitation to everyday mystics: unbind yourself from the causes of suffering and step into grace. “We all want the freedom of sanity and peace, the undefended inclusiveness of love. We all want refuge in grace.” —Kathleen Dowling Singh, from her introduction to Unbinding Unbinding is a spacious and sophisticated unfolding of one of Buddhism’s subtlest foundational teachings—the truth of dependent origination—offered in an utterly intimate voice. Kathleen Dowling Singh offers lyrical reflections on timeless truths and contemplative exercises accessible to anyone, opening the door of insight to all. Drawing on the language and teachings of Buddhism, Unbinding invites everyday mystics from all traditions—or none—to encounter the sacred and experience grace firsthand. Singh shows how illusions of ego obscure our true, unbounded nature and trap us in suffering—as she helps the reader move ever more deeply into living from gratitude, wisdom, and love.

Die Göttin in sich entdecken. Älterwerden ist nicht gleichbedeutend mit dem Verlust der Gesundheit, Schönheit oder dem Abgleiten in kulturelle Bedeutungslosigkeit. Niemand könnte das eindringlicher, überzeugender und leidenschaftlicher postulieren als die weltweit renommierte Gynäkologin und Bestsellerautorin Christiane Northrup. Bereits mit »Frauenkörper, Frauenweisheit« und »Weisheit der Wechseljahre« ermutigte sie unzählige Frauen, ihrem ureigenen intuitiven (Körper-) Wissen zu vertrauen. Nun führt sie in das Geheimnis der Alterslosigkeit ein. Dabei geht es ihr um nichts weniger als die Emanzipation von allen Vorurteilen der Gesellschaft gegenüber dem Älterwerden, von den Erwartungen »der anderen« und auch von den Einflüsterungen der Ärzte. Sie fordert dazu auf, endlich all das zu tun, was Frauen zu alterslosen Göttinnen macht: die Selbstheilungskräfte stärken, optimale Ernährung, u. a. mit Superfoods, die Freizeit erfüllend gestalten, sich der spirituellen Dimension öffnen – um maximal sinnlich, vital und freudvoll zu leben.

Written by a chiropractor and alternative health practitioner with over 30 years of experience, this book addresses health and wellbeing of body, mind and spirit for an aging population (50+). Uniquely, this material is presented through the lens of Clinical Kinesiology. This simple self-help tool of muscle-testing allows readers to find out what their own body knows and needs. They learn that the body a oespeaksa through either strong or weak muscle responses to questions asked or situations presented, and are instructed in how to do this simple self-testing for a variety of health issues. Stories of other seniors who have used this methodology to their benefit provide a platform for acceptance and motivation, and each chapter contains specific recommendations for its use. How to become a a oewise elder is another unique emphasis of this book. The author encourages us to learn from many different cultures and traditions a more life-positive view of aging. In fact, she coins the word a oeYouthing to describe such a re-orienting of mind, purpose and activity toward optimum vibrancy and flexibility, leading to longevity. Stories of successful transitions into elderhood give hope to those who are confused or anxious about becoming older. Since the body's health is intimately related to that of mind and emotions, a Youthing approach will be characterized by equanimity, gratitude, forgiveness and dynamic relationship with others. Her many exercises and suggestions are designed to encourage readers to value themselves as worthwhile wisdom contributors. a oeYou can assume the stance of a respected elder, ' she declares, 'even if the surrounding culture does not immediately support that. In other words, readers are invited to be the change they want to effect. Far from being a scholarly or scientific text, Your Aging Body Can Talk is written for immediate use by maturing practitioners or laypersons. Throughout the book, the concerns of an aging population are consistently placed in the forefront: How to develop an anti-inflammation diet and lifestyle The factors that affect longevity How to build cognitive health and brain vibrancy How to find or refine your life's purpose, no matter what your age Why detoxification is so essential, at any age.
