Customer Reviews for How to Be an Elder

I am an elder, and to have a guide this time in my life is such a gift. I do appreciate the advice , the wisdom
and the direction that Dr. E. shares in this audio. I
can't begin to thank her, as words would not come close to conveying what a difference this has made in my life.

I am now an Elder. Without having had any direction or preparation I wasn't clear on what I might encounter. Dr. E. gives a clear and humorous map.
My experience with aging has been positive. Now I see the importance of my new role. Yipee. Any one who is already and elder or approaching, get ready for a fun and joyful ride. My experience is it only gets better with each passing year. Her words will inspire you and get ready for a lot of laughter.

Each session of How to be an Elder is a magical journey with master storyteller, Dr. E. Each part of this Dangerous Old Woman series has touched me deeply, and I will carry the wisdom found with me always. Deep gratitude to Dr. E. and Sounds True for the spiritual treasures.

This series is even more wonderful than I anticipated! CPE is a fabulous story teller. She brings the stories to life and relates them to our life journeys. I have one of the previous sessions and plan to purchase the others soon. I can listen to them several times and find new relevance each time.

Thank you Sounds True for providing a home and broadcasting base for our dearly treasured Dr. Estes.
As with all her work, Estes has shown us how to make the stitches in the mending, and making of life. Thank you to our dear Dr CPE, the hobbits and Tami. Well done!

Excellent!!! Clarissa always shares an abundance of delightful content that over delivers my expectations.
I highly recommend this program to anyone who has the depth to accept true innate wisdom.

As always, Dr. Estes content is fabulous. However, it's apparent that part of her teaching is cut out of the recording. Do I need to download the sessions again?
