Thomas Moore is the renowned author of Care of the Soul, the classic #1 New York Times bestseller. In Ageless Soul, Moore reveals 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 readers 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.

Reviews:

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 explorationů 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: A Memoir of Father and Family and America on the Couch: Psychological Perspectives on American Politics and Culture

"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

"With Ageless Soul, Thomas Moore extends a magnificent invitation to reflect, grow up with joy and intention, and give back with an open heart. Accept and pleasure follows." - Marc Freedman, founder and CEO of Encore.org and author of The Big Shift
