Discussion of Aging with Wisdom with author Olivia Ames Hobitzelle.
How do we find meaning and beauty in aging, and how do we respond to living in an age-phobic culture? Aging with Wisdom addresses these questions by providing a heartening guide to the later years, filled with examples from the author’s own experience as well as from varied wisdom traditions and cultures that revere elders.
