Living Your Unlived Life: Coping with Unrealized Dreams and Fulfilling Your Purpose in the Second Half of Life

As one grows older and life's choices seem to diminish, it's easy to regret the roads not taken, which then lead to an inability to embrace your life as it is now. A remedy can be found in Johnson and Ruhl's wonderfully insightful, possibly even life-changing book. Jungian psychologists and the co-authors of Contentment , Johnson and Ruhl believe the roads-not-taken needn't be cast aside; they can—and must—be integrated into present-day life and used to find new opportunities for fulfillment and wholeness. How? By engaging in what the authors refer to as “active imagination”—a disciplined, spiritual form of inner dialogue. The book is intelligent, refreshingly free of psychobabble and best of all heralds the power of the imagination to transform and possibly keep you out of trouble. (Oct.)
