About this title


The Unexpected Adventure of Growing Old questions attitudes that characterize aging as a time of deprivation rather than a time of enrichment. Drawing on recent research as well as candid accounts of personal experience, Leah Friedman explains that by embracing our aging, adjusting to its challenges, and focusing on its advantages, we can transform ourselves and help demolish the ageism so prevalent in our society. Especially important is realistically facing end of life issues and acknowledging the mystery of life after death, offering unparalleled opportunities to strengthen our character and deepen our emotional and spiritual outlook.

About the Author:

Leah Friedman, Ph.D. After an early career as an audiologist, Leah dedicated herself to marriage and family before becoming in midlife a still-life photographer exploring symbolic imagery of the unconscious. These images led to a deep interest in Jungian psychology. At age 69 she entered a doctoral program in Mythological Studies at Pacifica Graduate Institute—she was the oldest student in her class—and received her degree at age 73. Leah’s experience in developing and conducting rituals is recounted in her book, The Power of Ritual. She has also written a memoir, Leafings & Branchings.
