My book, Earned Wisdom started as a workshop called ‘Becoming an Elder in Times of Chaos’. It began in my mid 50s when I realized the only thing I really knew about life over 60 was astrological. I could see the patterns and interpret them for others but that is quite different than living into an experience. What better way to learn something than to teach it? Over the years the workshop has grown and developed. In truth it will always be a work in progress as nothing stays the same. I think of the book as a navigational tool. Something to use as a springboard to crafting your own understanding of what it means for you to set sail from the adult stage of life to the elder one.
The book is as much for those anticipating their future selves as well as those who have already crossed the threshold of 60 and would like a deeper understanding.
You can also find my book at these bookstores:
WonderWorks Bookstore. If you can’t find it in their on line list of products you can call or email them for details or you can just go there in person. It’s always fun to take a trip to WonderWorks!
Ben McNally Books at 366 Bay Street. A book oasis to be sure.
