Claiming Your Place At the Fire: Living the Second Half of Your Life on Purpose
If you're in, or about to enter, "the second half of life," this practical guide will show you how to claim your rightful place among the "new elders"–men and women who "use the second half of life as an empty canvas, a blank page, a hunk of clay to be crafted on purpose." Through inspiring stories and thought-provoking exercises, you'll learn to ask, and answer, four key questions: Who am I? Where do I belong? What do I care about? and What is my purpose? This book provides a new model for vital aging. It shows you how to age successfully by living on purpose.
"As a generation, baby boomers have long been called, ‘the rat in the python.’ Claiming Your Place At the Fire challenges us to be the python, not the rat—and to start by shedding our generational skins. This book is thoughtful, warm, helpful, and above else, wise.”
