Conscious AgingwithGay Luce

Books Mentioned In This Interview

This video is a special release from the original Thinking Allowed series that ran on public television from 1986 until 2002. It was recorded in about 2001.

Gay Gaer Luce is author of several books including Sleep, Body Time, and Longer Life, More Joy. Here she proposes that the aging process need not occur in the manner prescribed by cultural stereotypes. She suggests that if we look to other cultures we can find models in which old age is a time for great spiritual opening. Simple breathing, sensory awareness and stretching exercises can awaken the body and counteract stiffness.
