Zoom: Moving from Adulthood into Elderhood
With Terry Jones
September 11, 2021
Elderhood is a generative time where one celebrates their role as wisdom keeper, mentor of the young and potentially, a source of blessing. To elder is to rediscover a generative developmental model for moving from “adulthood” to “elderhood”. Older people today are fully capable of rediscovering their spiritual radiance and maintaining their social responsibilities and act as advocates for the young.
Terry Jones D.Min. is the author of The Elder Within (2001) and Elder: A spiritual alternative to being elderly. Jones is eighty one, has six children and eleven grandchildren. Jones is past Elder Chairman of the ManKind Project and past board member of Sageing International.
