Publisher's Summary

Over two decades ago, beloved and respected rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi felt an uneasiness. He was growing older, and fears about death and infirmity were haunting him. So he decided to embark on mission to get to the bottom of his fears. Through a series of events that included a vision quest in a secluded cabin and studying with Sufi masters, Buddhist teachers and Native-American shamans, Reb Zalman found a way to turn aging into the most meangful and joyous time in his life.

In this inspiring and informative guide, Reb Zalman shares his wisdom and experience with listeners. He tells listeners how to create an aging process for themselves that is full of adventure, passion, mystery, and fulfillment, rather than anxiety. Using scientific research - both neurological and psychological - Reb Zalman offers techniques that will expand horizons beyond the narrow view of "the present" into a grand and enduring eternity.

By harnessing the power of the spirit, as well as explaining exactly how to become a sage in their own community, he gives listeners a helpful and moving way to use their own experiences to nurture, heal, and perhaps even save a younger generation from the prison of how we typically regard aging.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

A must read!

I can't help but wish Reb Zalman was the narrator, AND I'm so glad this book is here for everyone.
