A T-shirt reads, "It is weird being as old as old people." But we are not simply becoming old, says Dr. Robert A. Jonas, December‘s speaker. We are moving into another adventure and challenge, to become an elder. Are there practices we can follow to navigate our later years? Yes. They might include mindfulness, meditation, or contemplation.
