Live your passion and purpose and change the world as an empowered elder
The Aging of Aquarius takes readers on a journey to find a new identity and passion and purpose in retirement. From gardening clubs to political campaigning, to social investing and creative work, it offers inspiration, practical steps, and resources.

Helen Wilkes, Ph.D, is an octogenarian who spent forty years teaching, researching, and delving deeply into the humanities. She survived a lifetime of hardships ranging from fleeing Nazi Germany in her childhood to navigating personal and professional obstacles in her adult years. Nevertheless, she persevered and created a richly rewarding life. Retirement has been the icing on her cake, bringing inner transformation and freedom. She sees retirement as a time to re-examine our values, re-assess the scope for action, and to strike off in new directions.
