In every culture, in every age, there is a turning point in life. At this threshold begins the greatest adventure: the second half of life.
When you find courage to change at midlife, a miracle happens and you are opened, softened, strengthened, and deepened; prepared to create your legacy -- an imprint of your dream for our world that can only come true in the second half of life.
In The Second Half of Life: Opening the Eight Gates of Wisdom, Angeles retrieves the world's vital wisdom teachings about the mysteries and purposes of midlife. For over 30 years, she has examined the way diverse cultures handle the challenges unique to midlife. "We are born with a great dream for our lives," she notes. "In the second half of life, after your roots have gone deeply into the world, it is time to resurrect this dream. The blossom of your 'wild and previous life' is ready to bring forth the fruit of your unique and creative gifts. By reclaiming your life dream -- by refusing to stay down -- you 'lift your heart up to heaven' and make all things possible."
