My Days with Emma: A Soulful Path to Elderhood
It’s simply not true! Your aging does not mandate rounds of golf and martinis, while staying out of the way of progress. Loss does not have to be the most salient aspect of aging. If you allow the years to be instructive, valuable insight can be passed on. As you are not so preoccupied with achieving worldly pursuits, your inner world becomes more accessible. What you have learned and what you can teach become unequivocal. My Days with Emma – A Soulful Path to Elderhood offers readers a blueprint for being a valued resource while aging. Find out how your maturity can be a worthy way to serve in the winter of your life, yielding a rich legacy.
“Paul Dunion’s My Days with Emma: A Soulful Path to Elderhood is not only a wise book; it is a practical guide to the reconfiguring of one’s life. He covers the questions, the resistances, and the developmental tasks of aging as well as anyone I know. His conversations with Emma, a wise woman senior to him, is both an outer encounter with a woman who has lived the journey and reflected on it, and an inner encounter with his own questioning, anxious, yet resourceful anima. This book is especially practical for men because it asks questions for them that rest still unspoken in their hearts, and for women who want to know more about those strange creatures we call men.”
– James Hollis, PhD, Jungian Analyst; Author, The Broken Mirror: Refracted Visions of Ourselves
