Bedtime Stories for Elders: What Fairy Tales Can Teach Us About the New Aging, is a fun and spiritually-oriented book, that answers these and other question about what is now called 'The Third Age, ' a time of unprecedented longevity and still unrecognized potential. As mythologists and depth psychologists know, fairy tales contain ancient wisdom about life--wisdom that also applies to aging. Built upon ten fascinating and powerful tales, Bedtime Stories for Elders reveals the unseen psychological and spiritual dimensions of aging--providing a lens through which our own struggles will make sense. With each story, we also travel more deeply into the ultimate meaning and transformational potential of Elders, drawing the reader into a profound process of self-discovery."@en ;
