I’m in the middle of reading Susan Moon’s new book This is Getting Old: Zen Thoughts on Aging with Humor and Dignity—and you should be, too! It’s the subject of the Tricycle Community Book Club’s new discussion. Susan Moon’s book is by turns hilarious, thought-provoking, and deeply moving. Aging is about as universal a topic as it gets, no matter how deep our denial is! A chapter from the book, “Leaving the Lotus Position,” appeared in Tricycle before the book came out. You can read it here. Our friends at Shambhala Sunspace also asked Susan to write a guest post last week, which you can read here. Susan Moon has already added her thoughts to the discussion, so join now and ask her your questions about aging. You have to join the Book Club on the Tricycle community, but it’s easy—and free! Book Club members receive a 30% discount on the book and free shipping in the US through Shambhala Publications. Order your book here and type in the sales code OLDBONES. This offer is good through 6/30.
