Discover how you can live your passion and purpose after retirement and change the world as an empowered elder. Your career has wound down, the kids have moved, and your schedule is clear . . . for the next thirty years. In your youth, you cared about people and planet earth, and you had grand visions of changing the world. At some point, those passions and that sense of purpose got buried under diapers and the 9-5. Still, that old you remains alive. Now, with the rest of your life ahead, you can be the change and make this next stage of your life the most powerful yet. But where to start? Helen Wilkes, a retired professor and activist, takes readers on an inspiring journey to find renewed purpose in retirement. Along the way she helps readers navigate the transition to a post-work identity by fanning the embers of lost passions and developing new interests. Whether you are drawn to gardening clubs, to social justice issues, political campaigning, ethical investing, or creativity through the arts, The Aging of Aquarius offers inspiration, practical steps, and extra resources to help reignite your passion, your sense of purpose, and to effect real change in the world as an empowered elder. Praise for The Aging of Aquarius “If you want to make your retirement or “elderhood” the best part of your life, read this book. Interspersing her own amazing story, octogenarian Helen Wilkes points the way to purpose, passion, and pleasure in later years. Wilkes has woven psychology, philosophy, and poetry into a page-turner you will not want to put down. I read it in one sitting.” —Dr.Roslyn Kunin, C.M., O.B.C., Roslyn Kunin and Associates, Inc. "In this inspiring work Helen Wilkes wastes no time raging against the dying of the light, showing instead that the light of mind and soul can shine ever more brightly even as our bodies grow old. The Aging of Aquarius is both an intimate personal account and a call to enlivenment and action for an entire generation.” —Gabor Maté M.D., author, When The Body Says No: The Cost of Hidden Stress “Whether you are contemplating retirement or well-established in the business of living your senior years, this literary adventure will nudge you to laugh at yourself, challenge yourself, and discover both encouragement and inspiration.” —Sally Thorne, RN, PhD, FAAN, FCAHS, Professor, School of Nursing and Associate Dean, Faculty of Applied Science, University of British Columbia
