Description - Claiming Your Place at the Fire - Living the Second Half of Your Life on Purpose by Leider

Claiming Your Place at the Fire: Living the Second Half of Your Life On Purpose presents a new paradigm of successful aging for men and women entering into and moving through the second half of their lives. Through an exploration of key concepts like purpose and renewal, and by drawing upon the timeless metaphor of fire, it enables readers to become what the authors call "new elders" - individuals who realize the power that comes with true wisdom and who accept the deep responsibility to share that wisdom for the benefit of their loved ones, their communities, and the world at large; to do so is what authors Leider and Shapiro mean by "claiming your place at the fire."
