The bestselling author of Work as a Spiritual Practice presents a new vision of the aging process, awakening a spirit of fulfillment and transformation Everything changes. Buddhist priest and meditation teacher Lewis Richmond was reminded of this fundamental Buddhist tenet as he grappled with his parents’ death and with his own serious illness. Throughout these experiences, a new inner roadmap emerged in him, charting an understanding that the later years can bring about new possibilities, fresh beginnings, and a wealth of appreciation and gratitude for the life journey itself.

In Aging as a Spiritual Practice, Richmond acknowledges the fear, anger, and sorrow many people experience when they must confront the indignities of their aging bodies and the unknowns associated with mortality. Whether you relish retirement, hate the thought of growing old, or are in denial about the whole thing, this wise, compassionate book guides you through key stages, including one that he calls Lightning Strikes (the moment we wake up to our aging) as well as the process of adapting to change, letting go of who we were, embracing who we are, and appreciating our unique life chapters. Unlike many philosophical works on aging, however, this one incorporates illuminating facts from scientific researchers, doctors, and psychologists. The tandem of maintaining a healthy body and healthy relationships, infused with an active spiritual life, is explored in rejuvenating detail. Breath by breath, moment by moment, Richmond’s teachings inspire limitless opportunities for a joy that transcends age.
