    schema:reviewBody ""This is a beginner's guide to contemplation for anyone in the second half of life. It is also a love story. Elizabeth and Robert first met as children but reconnected in their sixties when they learned that each was on a late-life journey of self-discovery and spiritual adventure. In Autumn Years they describe the practice of contemplation as part of a strategy of successful aging. Recognizing that there is no single contemplative path, and that individuals come to contemplation with different strengths and interests, the Kings provide a simple, reader-friendly guide to a number of contemplative practices: sitting meditation, centering prayer, walking meditation, and loving-kindness meditation. They describe other meditative practices as well: yoga, lectio divina, koan study, music meditation, dream work, and even travel as pilgrimage. But they show how contemplation can foster intimacy. Among the fruits of contemplation for those in the second half of life are inclusive faith, life review, leaving a legacy, living with mystery, and endless exploration."--Jacket." ;
