Everyone is getting old; not everyone is growing old.

But, the path of purposeful aging is accessible to all. And, it’s fundamental to health, happiness, and longevity.

With a focus on growing whole through developing a sense of purpose in later life, this book celebrates the experience of aging with inspiring stories, real-world practices, and provocative questions to help you navigate the path from adulthood to elderhood and to become more authentically the person you always meant to be with each passing year.
