  • The Spirituality of Age: A Seeker’s Guide to Growing Older by Robert L. Weber Ph.D. (Author), Carol Orsborn Ph.D. (Author)
  • The Enduring Heart: Spirituality for the Long Haul by Wilkie Au (Author)
  • From Aging to Saging: “A Revolutionary Approach to Growing Older” by Rabbi Zalman (Author)

    In this inspiring and informative guide, Reb Zalman shares his wisdom and experience in how to create an aging process that is full of adventure, passion, mystery, and fulfillment, rather than anxiety. Using scientific research--both neurological and psychological-- Reb Zalman offers techniques that will expand horizons beyond the narrow view of "the present" into a grand and enduring eternity. By harnessing the power of the spirit, as well as explaining exactly how to become a sage in their own community, he gives readers a helpful and moving way to use their own experiences to nurture, heal, and perhaps even save a younger generation from the prison of how we typically regard aging.

A Note From Tu Bears

via Jeane Tu Bears Jacobs' Facebook page, September 8, 2017

Looking at life a little too closely could cause us to get caught up in the small stuff. Our single minded perspective and point of view from our backyard might prevent us from seeing what is happening in the front yard. Running with the same crowd, sitting in the identical chair at our favorite coffeeshop or meeting, and taking the same route everyday limits possibilities There could be something said for switching things around or scanning the menu for a something wild and free. Shifting the way we look at things expands opportunities, opens our minds, gives us broader conversations, and deeper relationships. It is our responsibility to change, to broaden our scope of life, and to bravely toss fate to the wind. We are responsible for shifting the vibrational field of all possibilities with our extensive ingenious muscle, our electrifying thinking, and our expanded visionary horizons. Yes, it takes courage, strength, practice, and tenacity to design a more peaceful world. Remember, we were chosen to live in this time to do just that.
