The Warmth of the Heart prevents your Body from Rusting. Ageing without growing old.
'The resistance to the prevailing jeunisme - youngism - has been led in recent years by Marie de Hennezel...When she reached 60 she turned her hand from books on dying to the art of ageing. Her bestselling manifesto, The Warmth of the Heart Prevents the Body from Rusting, is now being published in Britain... Disciples flock to Hennezel's seminars to learn the key to accepting ageing. The lesson is that when we have made peace with ourselves, "it is not bitterness and despair that inhabit us, but a new feeling of unimaginable liberty and an immense tenderness".' --The Times
The inevitable ageing process does not have to condemn us to solitude, suffering, degradation or dependency. In this eloquent meditation on ageing, Marie de Hennezel guides us through a true ‘art of growing old’. She recalls her encounters as a clinical psychologist with extraordinary people who 'grow old gracefully’ – and through her experience shows us how to make the most of this time in our lives, to avoid depression and to stay happy. She believes that wherever we grow old and whatever our circumstances, if we can maintain energy in our hearts and believe in the power of joy and human warmth, this can transform us and the way we look at the world. This is a wonderful book with a powerful message that applies to everyone no matter how old we are.
