L'autore:

Christopher Foster was born in London in 1932, son of a veteran British journalist. He wrote his first story at the age of 7 while bombs were falling all around the London apartment where he and his mother lived in the early days of WW11 while his Dad was overseas as a war correspondent. Foster is the author of five books including an inspirational fable, The Raven Who Spoke with God, self-published on 9/11 and later translated into 11 foreign language editions. An only child, he told his parents firmly at lunch one day that his goal in life was to find the true meaning of existence. It led to a fierce argument with his Dad who ended up slapping the young dreamer angrily across the face. Christopher followed in his father’s footsteps as a reporter, working on newspapers and magazines in London, Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), New Zealand, and Canada, but he followed in his own footsteps in his search for meaning and truth. It was a quest that took him to British Columbia, where he worked as a reporter on the Daily Colonist in Victoria and later met a British nobleman who became his spiritual mentor and changed his life. Lord Martin Cecil -- a descendant of Lord Burghley, chief adviser to Queen Elizabeth I -- had resigned his commission in the Royal Navy to manage his father’s cattle ranch in British Columbia. For 36 years, Christopher was a member of a spiritual community Lord Martin had established in the interior of BC. He thought it would be his home forever, but the community collapsed after the death of its leader and at the age of 63, with virtually no material resources, Foster had no choice but to return to the world he had abandoned in his youth. It was a brutal transition but paradoxically it opened a door to freedom and a new, increasingly happy and fulfilling life. Christopher lives with his wife JoAnn in Denver. He has one son in Vancouver. He started his blog, The Happy Seeker, in 2009. Visit him at www.thehappyseeker.com.

Descrizione libro Singing Spirit Books. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 132 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.4in. x 0.1in.Aging can be a door to a beautiful new lifeThis wise book -- a rare blend of clarity and heart, as one reviewer declared -- affirms that growing old does not have to be the inevitable downward journey we sometimes fear. On the contrary, despite its challenges -- and in fact because of them -- aging can be a door to a beautiful new life filled with increasing meaning and joy. It can be an opportunity to connect more deeply with the unconquerable love of our being and express that love to the full regardless of our age. Aging into Bliss consists of 27 meditations based in the authors personal experience. Christopher Foster, who was born in London in 1932, shares insights and experiences that helped him navigate his childhood in wartime Britain, the sudden loss of his first wife, the collapse of the spiritual community that was his home for 36 years, and two major clinical depressions. Christopher invites us to see the challenges of these changing times as a catalyst that can help us grow and discover the pristine masterpiece that we truly are -- unharmed, and even strengthened, by turmoil. Follow your bliss, said Joseph Campbell. This book will help you do just that. It is an easy, light and friendly read which can inspire you time and again. Its words of encouragement will help you: 1. Realize that your true worth is not dependent upon circumstances. 2. Find peace. 3. Age well. 4. Become more attuned to your inner wisdom. 5. Relieve the fear of death and other major life changes. 6. Answer the age-old questions: What is my purpose Who am I7. Cope with life. 8. Re-connect with an inner joy and purpose that increases with age. 9. Find meaning. Here are some sample chapter titles: The Secret Bliss of Aging, Are There Surprising Benefits in Challenging Times, Changing Your Attitude Toward Fear, How My Big Challenge Boosted My Confidence, You Can Heal Your Past. Carol Leavenworth, Jungian psychotherapist, wrote in her foreword to this book: Aging into Bliss goes to the heart of the mystery surrounding lifes final developmental stage. Chris reveals secrets to the joy and peace of mind that led him to the bliss he is discovering in his later years, and goes on to tell us exactly what his personal experience has taught him about the love within each one of us and the happiness that is hiding everywhere in plain sight.
