The Second Half of Life: Opening the Eight Gates of Wisdom (Compact Disc)
We are all born with a great dream for our lives, explains cultural anthropologist Angeles Arrien, a dream which may have been derailed along the way by family and career responsibilities, or submerged by our own choices. In the second half of life, after your roots have gone deeply into the world, it is time to resurrect this dream. On The Second Half of Life, Dr. Arrien introduces you to the Eight Gates of Initiation. Through images, poetry, and timeless metaphors from diverse world cultures, you will learn to understand their lessons and gifts, harvest the meaning and purpose of your life, and come into spiritual maturity. Follow this gifted storyteller as she takes you step-by-step through each gate to deepen your most valuable relationships, reclaim your untended creative talents, and shift your focus from ambition to meaning to grow into the magnificent elder you were meant to become.Note: Excerpted from the full-length audio courseThe Second Half of Life.
