Clinical Psychiatrist and Author, Dr. Daniel Lieberman, joins us on the Aging Today Podcast to discuss his latest book Spell Bound. As we grow older, we become more introspective and focus more on our inner world. It flows from having more time for reflection, feeling a greater sense of responsibility for our own well-being (as opposed to blaming external factors), and simply having more life experience. For those who age well, this change of focus can lead to something we generally attribute to mystics and sages: The State of Transcendence. Click today and listen!
