THE ART OF AGING: Celebrating the Authentic Aging Self
As part of our personal growth and our responsibility as elders, our intention is to share what we have learned about growing older. By exhibiting our art, speaking and writing, we intend to spread the important message that aging is not the end of life, but can be a positive new beginning and the crowning culmination of a lifetime.
LOVING PROMISES: The Master Class for Creating Magnificent Relationship
High on the list of causes of human suffering is unhappy relationships. Alice and I have been blessed with a magnificent one. It is our intention through this book, our writing, teaching, and appearances in the media, to proclaim this good news – A MAGNIFICENT PARTNERSHIP IS AVAILABLE TO YOU! LOVING PROMISES offers the tools to make that relationship a reality.
