Audacious Aging

Chapter by Patt Lind-Kyle, Edited by Stephanie Marohn

A new collection of visionary stories that will transform your thinking about aging. The contributors to Audacious Aging give us the science of aging (we program our cells to age, says biologist Bruce Lipton, for example), dispel the myths that have until now ruled how we age, and offer us the new paradigm of body, mind, and spirit health throughout life. Alternately personal and global, practical and transportive, the chapters in this anthology are on the forward edge of this amazing revolution: the transformation of elderhood.

What does it mean to age audaciously? Patch Adams MD says the term is redundant, that aging by its very nature is audacious. Asha Clinton says that audacious aging comes from audacious living. Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi says the key is in turning age-ing into sage-ing. Christiane Northrup MD says that audacious aging is the new order of aging. Deepak Chopra MD says that aging in the new way means stepping out of the hypnosis of social conditioning. Nikki Giovanni says, “Audaciousness comes in refusing to be silenced.”

These voices along with Gloria Steinem, Andrew Weil, Nikki Giovanni, Howard Zinn, Dick Van Dyke, Helen Gurley Brown and many others speak to the power, creativity and energy that Audacious Aging-living gives us.

Patt Lind-Kyle’s Chapter “Building Community from the Inside Out” speaks to her passion of helping small groups of people meet together to develop mental tools that can heal their minds and rewire their brains by using the new science of neuroplasticity.
