WARMTH OF THE HEART PREVENTS YOUR BODY FROM RU Marie de Hennezel
We can't avoid growing old, but we can avoid the loneliness, suffering and dependency that so often accompany it. This is the comforting message of Marie de Hennezel's eloquent meditation on ageing, in which she recalls her encounters as a clinical psychologist with extraordinary people who 'grow old gracefully'. Through her experience, she shows us how we can make the most of this time in our lives, enjoying companionship and a sense of well-being, avoiding depression and remaining happy. She convinces us that, wherever we are and whatever our circumstances, we can maintain an energy in our hearts and nurture a strong belief in the power of joy and human warmth; and as long as we do this, we are free to enjoy an old age that will bring us satisfaction and peace. This is a wonderful book with a powerful, invigorating message that applies to everyone, no matter how old they are.
