Five Gifts of Pro-Aging:  Honoring Maturity in A Culture That Could Use It

In this timely guidebook, Marcia Newman brings a fresh response to an anti-aging culture that targets adults to find their value in remaining youthful-looking.  Five Gifts of Pro-Aging was born out of Marcia’s own mid-life aging crisis and her decades of professional work with especially women, who have found themselves increasingly obsessed with the insatiable practice of nip, tuck, highlight, laser and fill.  Through humor and her no-nonsense style, Marcia provides valuable tips, motivational questions, and personal stories to help you age consciously and comfortably.

Five Gifts of Pro-Aging  will help you to:
  • Take stock of your own aging phobia.
  • Uncover from prolific social stigmas about growing older.
  • Learn about feminine carry-over behaviors and how to transform them.
  • Clear up unfinished business and bring honor to your maturity.
  • Feed your seasoned inner animal with the gift of wildness.
  • Join with other Pro-agers in the Conscious Aging Movement and to help bring the humane back into humanity.
