Book Description

September 1992
New Insights about Old Age

In every phase of the human journey, we are in the process of aging. Yet our youth-fixated society considers aging a medical problem, and death a failure. Conscious Aging was the first conference ever conducted to define a new understanding of aging – one based on the practical issues of health, finances, and family, as well as the creative possibilities and spiritual dimensions that come with maturity. Conscious Aging is a one-of-a-kind celebration composed of practical lectures, stories, and exercises. Includes six information-packed sessions with Bernie Siegel, M.D., Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, Maggie Kuhn, Ram Dass, and Marion Woodman.

Conscious Aging Conference Highlights: 1 Life Harvest: The Missing Piece to Wholeness – Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi. A new vision of aging; the Spiritual Eldering Project; archetype of the cosmic elder; facing mortality; the fruits of contemplation and prayer; setting goals in late life; the legacy of wisdom; "aging" into "saging"; mentoring; more. 2 King Lear as Image in Eldering – Marion Woodman. The elder in the mirror; returning to childhood; breathing and visualization exercise; Lear as the elder archetype; core identity after retirement and ego surrender; the Hecate archetype; dream of "going home"; more. 3 When History and Biography Intersect – Maggie Kuhn.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of his best! Jan. 1 2005
By walter Lind - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio Cassette
I have listened to many hundreds of audio tapes and this title continues to remain in my top ten of all audio tapes after 10 years since the first listening. I have listened to it many times and continue to hear new wisdom. It is funny, poignant, thought provoking, and deals with a universal subject that all who are born will one day face. I also recommend "Still Here" and "Fierce Grace" if you enjoy this audio. It can take many years of reading many books in order to acquire a similar perspective that can be gained from this audio cassette. The cost is small and the gain is big. I hope you order a copy, this easy to assimilate wisdom and funny story telling is a rare treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enlightening and Comforting Oct. 14 1999
By Samuel Lee Oliver - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio Cassette
Ram Dass is a master teacher of spirituality. He reminds us that dying is opening up to living our most authentic self. He reminds us that our living uncovers hidden dimensions of our soul until we reach the fulfillment of life itself - dying into life. -- Samuel Oliver, author of, WHAT THE DYING TEACH US: LESSONS ON LIVING.

Pleasant to listen to the voice of Ram Dass...... amusing, uplifting and at times moving. Everyone should hear this amazing story teller and philosopher. What an exceptional person and friend to the fortunate ones that have crossed paths with him. God is smiling down on him.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read/Listen July 8 2013
By Zenith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have ordered numerous Conscious Aging CDs to give as gifts. The first CD on aging is extremely funny. Ram Dass has quite a sense of humor and he listening to him talk about our natural aging process, is wonderfully funny. In the next CD, he covers the dying process, a natural transition we all face. His approach helps allay fear and provides comfort.

Having recently suffered a loss in my immediate family, condolences came in, therapy was sought, no solace came. Then I listened to the wisdom of Ram Dass. He put things in perspective, cleared my eyes of tears, brought peace to my heart. Thank You Ram Dass for this master-work. Namaste!
