    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Conscious Aging the most enjoyable?

    Conscious Aging is an unbelievable journey which has touched my mind, my heart and my spirit. Ram Dass is funny, irreverent, full of insight, down to earth and truly inspiring to the point of actually changing the way I think of myself and my ailments. I have been ill recently and listening to this book has actually lifted my spirits and made me change the way I think of aging. Truly awesome!!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The frankness of Dass' speech, yet so eloquent.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    How he relates poetry and literature into his speech and uses different cultural references to make a point.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The part about how we approach dying was difficult, yet very helpful in seing things in a different light. Dass grabs our fear of dying by the horns and cradles it with meaningful insight that makes the fear less intense, and for lack of a better word, less scary.


    Any additional comments?

    I will listen to this speech many more times to absorb all the nuances of his insight.
