In the 1960s, Ram Dass was a Harvard professor who turned to Eastern religion to answer the questions troubling his generation. He shared his story in the landmark—indeed classic—book, Be Here Now, which captured the spiritual longings of his contemporaries.

In 1997, Ram Dass suffered a nearly incapacitating stroke that affected his speech and movement. The next two years he devoted to his healing and recovery. Drawing on this experience Ram Dass once again has produced a thought-provoking book that speaks to the soul. It is an appealing selection for those seeking insights and reassurance about the mature seasons of our lives.

    " horrible! horrible! horrible! occasionally he would say something good and then it would bounce again into the horrible.... "

    " I read this book several years ago and recently read it again. Ram Dass, formerly Richard Alpert, a psychologist/author and friend of Timothy Leary, similarly turfed from Harvard due to LSD experiments in the 1960's, is a lifelong spiritual thinker and healer. His serious stroke in 1999 caused him to come to terms with personal suffering and the reality of dependence onpon others in day to day life due to his incapacity. And yet, he is mostly happy. This is an excellent read that addressed the issue of change, aging, dying and death not as the enemy, but as aspects of the normal cadence of nature that we can learn from and embrace despite the undeniable challenges these also present. "

    " Best I ever read. About no matter how sick we become we are still the same person inside "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki | 12/7/2013

    " I read my brother's copy of "Be Here Now" when I was a kid. For anyone who has dealt with aging, illness, and death (oh, wait, I guess that's all of us!)especially as we get older, this one is truly inspirational. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hollis | 5/11/2013

    " For those of us whom Ram Dass' early book on 'Be Here Now' had a great influence on our lives, this is a wonderful companion piece, made all the more poignant because he had his stroke while working on this book, which caused him to truly reasses what matters in life "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate O'Mara | 11/23/2012

    " Ram Dass speaks frankly about Aging, Changing and Dying. I read this book in bed, when I was very ill and thinking that I might die. It was a comfort to read from someone a bit farther on the aging path but still thinking about life and death and the meaning or non-meaning of it all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 11/21/2012

    " I like Ram Dass, but I wasn't in the mood once I brought this book home from the library. "

    " great for the ober 50 crowd, like me. gives me some things to think about as I mature. This book is like the advance scout for aging. "

    " Reading this is like sitting in front of a wise and funny teacher, listening and learning from his personal stories, observations, experiences. While about aging and dying - especially in a culture that fears wrinkles - it's also encouragement to "be here now" in every moment and every situation. "

    " We are working through this with a reading group I belong to. It has a lot to offer in opening up our willingness to embrace aging. "
