Author I. Leahanna Young knows that those who have completed the stepping stones to maturity have incredible amounts of wisdom waiting to be tapped. In her new book, “Savoring Sage Time: The Journey from No One to Wise One” (published by iUniverse), she tells the stories of 10 remarkable people whose lifetimes will give inspiration and hope. “Here is a guide book for the baby boomers positioned to move us into a nation of wise elders,” she says.
Each sage interviewed by the author recounts the story of their journey of challenges faced, lessons learned and courage built. As readers follow along they will discover life is a grand, mysterious adventure filled with opportunity, learning and joy. Young illustrates how essential tasks completed along the journey allow growth into wisdom. Through Young's research and observations, readers become privy to the art of aging gracefully, a key component to being a true sage.
Many are weary with news of doom and gloom, headlines of economic despair. “It is time … people are hungry for the hope and good news of ‘Savoring Sage Time.’ (It) offers a kind of life GPS to assist people to navigate ahead with hope and tools for recalculating when needed. The use of these tools guides us to our golden years vitally alive, joyfully contributing to life and connected with younger generations. Using the life experience of the wise combined with the energy, ingenuity and high tech capacity of youth allows all to prosper.”
