Overview

Keepers of the Wisdom, a daily meditation guide for older adults, captures the words of the aging themselves and provides a deep sense of spiritual center gained through experience and acceptance.

After the first joys of early retirement, author Karen Casey quickly experienced a minor identity crisis. The process of redefining herself in the absence of a career was made easier after interviewing other older adults with similar experiences.Casey's interviews included men and women from a wide range of ages (58-92) and from various parts of the country. Their stories were as varied as their personalities. However, Casey discovered one common element. They had each discovered an activity that gave their lives real meaning and tied them to the larger human community.

Keepers of the Wisdom, a daily meditation guide for older adults, captures the words of the aging themselves. Casey, in her classic style, comments upon those insights with her own wisdom and sensitivity, providing affirmations that can become a part of one's daily living. Underlying each of the meditations is a deep sense of a spiritual center gained through experience and acceptance.

Keepers of the Wisdom provides a spiritual center gained through experience and acceptance. These meditations are a portrait of active and fulfilling lives that give great purpose to themselves and to others.
