Aging does not have to be dreaded but can be, in fact, an amazing and wonderful adventure. Old age is a ripening, a harvest and potentially the most satisfying stage of our whole lives. The elderwoman has an important social role to play, at any level she chooses. Since our most pressing social imperative is that we learn to dwell more lightly and cooperatively on the earth, the natural 'lightening' of the aging process makes the elderwoman and ideal leader/expert in the art of what is now called 'downshifting', i.e. the conscious choice of a simple lifestyle. This is an interactive book, inviting the readers to reflect on their own experiences as they read. It includes self-help exercises drawn from the author's many years of experience as a workshop leader, and carries a wealth of useful resource material. The book draws on developmental and Jungian psychology, ecopsychology, deep ecology, spirituality and eco-feminist philosophy. Yet, it is written in a clear, jargon-free language which renders it accessible to all, regardless of educational standard, colour, race, belief system, socioeconomic level or sexual persuasion.
