In every culture, in every age, there is a turning point in human life. At this threshold you begin the greatest adventure: the second half of life. When you find the courage to change at midlife, a miracle happens. Your character is opened, deepened, strengthened, softened. You are now prepared to create your legacy: an imprint of your dream for our world - a dream that can only come true in the second half of life. In The Second Half of Life, Angeles Arrien retrieves the world's vital wisdom teachings that have opened people at midlife to the deeper mysteries of who they are and why they are truly here. For over 30 years, Dr. Arrien, cultural anthropologist and author, has examined the way diverse cultures handle the challenges unique to the "great crossing" at midlife.
"We are born with a great dream for our lives," notes Dr. Arrien, "a dream which may have been submerged along the way by family and career realities. In the second half of life, after your roots have gone deeply into the world, it is time to resurrect this dream. For now the blossom of your 'wild and precious life' is ready to bring forth the fruit of your unique and special creative gifts. By reclaiming your life dream - by refusing to stay down - you 'lift your heart up to heaven' and make all things possible."
