The book, written by Dr. Harvey Austin, an Internationally known surgeon, has become an International Best Seller in five countries, USA, Canada, Australia, Germany and the UK.
The purpose of his powerful book is to restore humanity’s natural Third Stage of Life ― Elder. . To be an Elder means to live life in full-bloom.
We have lost Elder, our best stage. The wisdom and compassion of our older and wiser members has been ignored as Elder itself has been sidelined and disempowered. Now we tell disparaging jokes about our old people, ignoring their value. This is called Ageism.
For 99.9% of human life-on-earth, we cherished Elders. They were our cherished stage of wisdom, compassion and honor. When we lived in tribes, our families had three generations, usually living in the same household. Then, our Elders had been taught by five generations; by grandparents, parents, peers, children and grandchildren. Now, with the loss of family as their training ground, adults arrive at the stage of possible Elderhood ― untrained and unready.
Now it requires work to develop the wisdom and compassion of Elderhood. Today, we must train ourselves
“Elders Rock!” presents a blueprint for both men and women to train themselves to become Elders, to become wise and compassionate and to become a great service to their family, to their community and to the world. The book points out the tragic danger of ageism.
Dr. Austin asks, “How much longer can our world exist when run by mere adults without Elder supervision?”
Elder is not an age of life, it is a stage of Life. You are never too old….or too young….to declare yourself to be an Elder.
Dr. Austin has pioneered surgical procedures and has authored medical articles and chapters in medical texts. A charismatic speaker, he has lectured to surgeons in Belgium, Brazil, Mexico and Sweden. He is the founder of The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Washington, D.C. He is a philosopher-surgeon who has spent adult life as a student of both personal and cultural transformation. His work has been featured on the Oprah Winfrey and Phil Donahue shows.
“My greatest intention is that our global worldview shifts from its present competitive You OR Me worldview to a co-operative worldview of You AND Me.” Says, Dr. Austin.
