TSM142 : The Joy of the Present Moment

Today's walky talky, starts with the joy of sheep ! Using their inspiration, I explore how we can systematically and holistically experience the joy of the presence moment !

TSM96 : The Joy of Ageing

I've always envied people who were older than me and as I approach 50, I feel a real sense of excitement about where I'm at in life and what is to come. In this monologue I reflect on ageing, by exploring :

The negative baggage associated with physical and mental changes
Our fears of dying
The joy of ageing and old age
The importance of accepting ageing
The benefits of old age and why it's worth looking forward to getting older
The best and worst kinds of ageing
Grumpy phases
Transcending the fears associated with ageing and embracing the wonder of getting older
Moving through the passage of perpetual grief and growing through resilience
The choice we all have about how to age. 
You wont find any sympathy or regret in  this monologue.

You may wish to skip the first 23 minutes and my wishing to provide my sick sister with a means to fulfill a lifelong dream. I was having a hard time with her illness and seeing her suffering.

I can't recommend the writings of Marie De Hennezel, particularly her books on dying and ageing. Unfortunately most of her books are in French but at least two of them are in English.
