Deepening Community:Finding Joy Together in Chaotic Times Paul Born
Community shapes our identity, quenches our thirst for belonging, and bolsters our physical, mental, emotional, and economic health. But in the chaos of modern life, community ties have become unraveled, leaving many feeling afraid or alone in the crowd, grasping at shallow substitutes for true community. In this thoughtful and moving book, Paul Born describes the four pillars of deep community: sharing our stories, taking the time to enjoy one another, taking care of one another, and working together for a better world. To show the role each of these plays, he shares his own stories-as a child of refugees and as a longtime community activist. It´s up to us to create community. Born shows that the opportunity is right in front of us if we have the courage and conviction to pursue it. ungekürzt. Language: English.

In Aging Strong Dr. Harris shows that this ´´extraordinary gift of a longer life” is the opportunity to go deep inside ourselves and meet the spiritual challenge to develop a new story and purpose for ourselves during the fourth quarter of life. It is the opportunity to explore our creativity, discover new vocations and callings, learn to thrive, hold a sense of wonder, and establish a new sense of security in life. It is the gift of deeper emotional connections, wisdom, and newfound joy in living. This book is written for you… If you want to thrive and find spiritual strength, wellbeing, wisdom, and wonder as you grow older. If you are willing to recognize that we live in a new period of history where we can live longer and with more vitality than people ever have. If you are ready to embrace this new reality and live the fourth quarter of your life creatively, lovingly, and joyfully.
