The ElderGarten: A Field Guide for the Journey of a Lifetime is author Sally Z. Hare's invitation to you to join her in becoming what the planet most needs now: Elders. There are more old people than ever on the planet - but fewer Elders, and there has never been a time that wisdom and leadership and integrity are more needed. This non-linear journey of a lifetime begins early in life - and invites us into becoming fully who we are and to use our gifts in service of the planet. Elder is not about age, but about the time of Life when one's hidden wholeness becomes visible. Elder means to live with integrity, undivided between the inner Self and the outer world: soul and role are connected in a seamless flow. The journey requires resilience and commitment - and Sally shares the practice she has discovered to build that strength. Sally envisions The ElderGarten as the field for learning to be an Elder. She knows that books are the thin places that invite her into the space between the real and the imaginal, so why not a field guide that shows the way to The ElderGarten?
