How is the process of getting older a spiritual teacher? This is the question Ram Dass sets out to answer in Still Here: Embracing Aging, Change, and Death. As we get older, there’s a tendency to resist the change that is inherent in the experience of life. While many cling to past identities of youth and take up the unbeatable fight against time, Ram Dass implores his readers to use these experiences as opportunities for letting go and surrendering to the present moment. As we wrap up our exploration into the theme of aging this June and July, we recommend Ram Dass’ book as a helpful resource for reframing aging as an opportunity for healing, expansion, and a release of suffering.
“More than thirty years ago, an entire generation sought a new way of life, looking for fulfillment and meaning in a way no one had before. Leaving his teaching job at Harvard, Ram Dass embodied the role of spiritual seeker, showing others how to find peace within themselves in one of the greatest spiritual classics of the twentieth century, the two-million-copy bestseller Be Here Now. As many of that generation enter the autumn of their years, the big questions of peace and of purpose have returned demanding answers. And once again, Ram Dass blazes a new trail, inviting all to join him on the next stage of the journey.”
