From Age-ing to Sage-ing
This book by the respected elderly rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi marries spirituality, intellectual grounding and practical application. Faced with his own fears about aging, the rabbi went on a vision quest where he encountered the help and wisdom of Sufi masters, Buddhist teachers, brain-mind research and Native-American shamans. The book is full of zest, inspiration and life. But not without a price. The book also addresses the importance of coming to terms with death and dying, reminding us that at the base of our fears about aging is our unprocessed feelings about mortality.
