    WINTER’S GRACES: THE SURPRISING GIFTS OF LATER LIFE

    Book ID/图书代码: 13566019C00014

    English Summary/英文概要: Filled with unexpected good news about growing older, Winter’s Graces highlights eleven qualities that ripen with age―including audacious authenticity, creative ingenuity, necessary fierceness, self-transcending generosity, and a growing capacity to savor life and to ride its ups and downs with humor and grace.

    Decades of research have established that the catastrophic conditions often associated with late life, such as severe dementia and debilitating frailty, are the exception, not the rule. Still, the mistaken idea that aging equals devastating decline persists, causing enormous and unnecessary suffering, especially for women. Drawing on decades of experience as a psychology professor and psychotherapist, Susan Stewart, PhD, weaves together inspiring folk stories that illustrate the graces of winter and recent research that validates them, along with a wealth of user-friendly tools and practices for amplifying these graces and bringing them to life. Written primarily for women over 50 seeking good news about growing older, Winter’s Graces offers adults of all ages a compelling vision of aging that celebrates its many gifts, acknowledges its challenges, and reveals how the last season of life can be the most fulfilling of all.

    Chinese Summary/中文概要: 「我終於越來越屬於我自己...
    這幾乎花去了我所擁有過的全部時間。」
    ──芙蘿麗妲·史考特─麥斯威爾(Florida Scott-Maxwell)《時光的測量》(The Measure of My Days)

    數十年來的研究已經證明,跟人生的晚年有關的災難性疾病,如嚴重的癡呆與身體衰弱其實是例外,而非必然的規則,然而,老齡等同於毀滅性衰退的錯誤觀念依然根植人心,從而造成巨大而不必要的心理痛苦,特別是針對女性而言。

    本書作者以她數十年的心理治療師經驗和心理學教授的知識,將深具啟發性的寓言、童話和民間故事結合最新的科學研究,為我們展示了11項來自人生晚年的特別禮物,並給我們能夠輕易從事的練習和工具,引導我們從內在中喚醒並拾取這些禮物。

    本書為所有年齡的成年人提供了一個關於老年的最新願景,並禮讚這個階段的收穫,在承認其挑戰的同時,也為我們展示了人生的最後一季將可以如何完滿美好。 (Zoe)
