Tradepaper edition of spiritual teachings from international best-selling author and beloved inspirational speaker Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. This book restructures content from audio lectures of Wayne's from the 1990s and 2000s, offering a fresh take on mindfulness and enlightenment. Beloved spiritual teacher Dr. Wayne W. Dyer often shared his thoughts on the path and practice of enlightenment during his writings and presentations. He'd say, "This is not about self-help. It's about self-realization, which is way beyond self-help." In this book, which collects some of his timeless words of wisdom in a new format, the internationally renowned speaker and author offers spiritual tools to transcend your current circumstances and old patterns in order to reach true fulfillment. He will show you how to become genuinely awake, aware of the power you have within to shift your thought processes, release attachments, and tame your ego--to name just a few topics covered in these pages. Wayne will help you understand what an illusion much of life is, so you can see the big picture and spark deep transformation (that is, "the ability to go beyond your form"), resulting in peace and harmony in all areas of your life. He will also take you through the stages of enlightenment and instruct you in mindfulness practices such as visualization and meditation, ultimately helping you reach a higher consciousness. Indeed, as a result of reading this book, you'll feel as if you are absolutely living in the light, in tune with the magnificence of the Universe . . . and yourself.

Our later years need not be a time of loss. This book helps readers embrace the positive possibilities of aging and provides guidance on doing so purposefully, with courage, compassion, and curiosity. None of us know for sure what will happen as we age. What Richard J. Leider and David A. Shapiro do know, however, is that a purposeful mindset is a fundamental component of a life well-lived. What Do You Want to Be When You Grow Old? invites readers into the experience of two lifelong friends taking on the courageous conversation of aging well with honesty and purpose. In the first half of the book, readers are introduced to a framework for looking back over their lives and examining how they've arrived at the place they have. In the second half, readers are invited to look forward to purposeful aging with courage, compassion, and curiosity. In their bestseller Repacking Your Bags, Leider and Shapiro defined the good life as “living in the place you belong, with people you love, doing the right work, on purpose.” This book argues that aging well can be similarly defined as “aging in the place you belong, with people you love, doing the right ‘work,' on purpose.”
