Product Details


“David offers a wise and loving vision for a gracious later life, full of many favorite stories and helpful teachings.”—Jack Kornfield, author of A Path with Heart

“David Chernikoff offers a fresh, straightforward approach that unites living fully, becoming a wise elder, and conscious dying.”—Frank Ostaseski, author of The Five Invitations: Discovering What Death Can Teach Us About Living Fully

“Have you considered looking deeply at what life and death are about? In Life, Part Two, David Chernikoff shares a world of reflection, contemplation, and curiosity. The book offers insight into life and in turn supports the idea of a peaceful approach to the end of life. Separately, each chapter is a stepping stone, and all together they show a path to graceful aging and acceptance.”—Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Change

“By sharing his own life journey with candor, generosity, and inclusivity, David Chernikoff has provided an inviting overview for anyone facing the question, ‘What should I do now to reinspire my life?’—a classic ‘midlife’ question for any decisive endpoint in a life, whether it is a diagnosis, a divorce, a bereavement. Chernikoff’s voice is endearing. You will feel as if you’ve met a friend.”—Sylvia Boorstein, author of Happiness Is an Inside Job and Don’t Just Do Something, Sit There

Life, Part Two reminds us that there is still time to become the person we were meant to be. David Chernikoff’s Buddhist message is exactly what we need at a moment when we are looking for realistic hope for the second half of life.”—Harry R. Moody, author of Aging: Concepts and Controversies

“I have been waiting for this book, and it’s as good as I hoped. David Chernikoff distills wisdom from his decades studying and practicing Buddhism and other contemplative traditions, depicting the wise elderhood that our culture so needs.”—David Loy, author of Ecodharma: Buddhist Teachings for the Ecological Crisis

“Growing older is often seen as something to dread or stoically accept. What if instead of resignation we could approach it with a spirit of adventure, opening to the next chapter of our life with celebration and discovery? Life, Part Two gives us a roadmap to do just that. As a leading teacher in the field of conscious aging, David Chernikoff has synthesized a lifetime exploring wisdom teachings into his own profound recipe for aging gracefully. Filled with engaging stories, including his personal journey, Chernikoff shows how to not just get through this stage of life but to thrive in the process.”—James Baraz, author of Awakening Joy: 10 Steps to Happiness

“Readers feeling unmoored after a certain age can take in much from this contemplative take on finding connection and purpose.”—Publishers Weekly

“A compassionate, harmonious work.”—Mindful

“A powerful book. . . . A wise and compassionate guide to becoming an elder.”—Paradigm Explorer
