Wise Aging pro­vides infor­ma­tion, source mate­r­i­al and tools for indi­vid­u­als who are reach­ing their old­er years and for pro­fes­sion­als work­ing in the field. The book is intend­ed to serve as a guide­book for work­shops and pro­grams being offered by the Insti­tute for Jew­ish Spir­i­tu­al­i­ty. At the same time, the vast amount of mate­r­i­al con­tained here make it an excep­tion­al resource for all indi­vid­u­als and groups. The authors, well-known and high­ly respect­ed in their work, have gath­ered quo­ta­tions and texts from clas­si­cal Jew­ish texts, as well as from oth­er faith tra­di­tions and from con­tem­po­rary sources. Read­ers and users of the book are treat­ed to prac­ti­cal ideas for jour­nal­ing, med­i­ta­tion and oth­er spir­i­tu­al practices.
