Terry Jones, the author of The Elder Within: Source of Mature Masculinity, Bookpartners, 2001, Wilsonville, Oregon, shares his passion, the search for the elder within. This is a search both in the world and inside the soul. Jones encourages and celebrates the expression of eldership: an approach to the second-half-of-life that is apparent in expressions like active grand parenting, mentoring and stewardship. The man who embraces elder qualities makes himself available to the young, to his family and the community. He has confidence in the fruits of his long life experience, and wants to seed the future for the sake of the young. Jones imagines men as they enter the retirement years taking on roles such as mentor, mediator and a source of blessing. North American men, however, don't have models for how to utilize the expanded life span we have today.

We lose ourselves in work for most of our adult lives. Like fathers before us, we have been emotionally distant from our children. We have not developed skills in nurturing our spirit. The elder within is a source of a spiritual and balanced expression of masculinity. The Elder Within shows the relationship between the acceptance of responsibility for stewardship both of people and the earth and the recovery of men from the damage done to their souls in recent history. In the 18th century men became detached from family and community as they moved from farm to factory. Competing for jobs and profit, men forgot the joy of collaboration. In order to survive men learned about asserting power in the workplace. They then returned home and allowed their power to darken the nature of fatherhood and grand-fatherhood. Today we have come to decry abuse by men who beat their wives, perpetuate violence and discriminate against people. These are not mature men. In The Elder Within we celebrate mature men who express mature masculinity.

The focus of the book is men, but women will also enjoy the hopeful potential of mature masculinity. Jones believes men are looking for a next step in the personal growth and healing many of them began in the men's movement. The Elder Within offers elder, as an alternative to elderly: that stereotype of older people that frightens the young about aging. Eldership, the expression of elder qualities, is a second half of life adventure in modeling mature masculinity. Elder expression fosters consensus rather than conflict. The man or woman who expresses elder energy uses tools of wisdom like meditation, contemplation and active listening. The elder expresses confidence in their long life experience and wants to seed the future by being accessible to and holding the dream for the young.

Terry Jones provides a well-built model of the Male as we all should like to be as we grow older. Dignified, and Strong (if not of body) then strong of spirit and mind. Guided by Heart, and moved by Souls. Both your own soul, and those you meet, love, and care for. Even the ones you weren't expecting to care for, but were thrust upon you. Such is the role of "Elder". An individual Man is representative of that which his heart bends him to over the time of his entire "Life" on this Earth. It's ultimate culmination is the "He" which presents at Old Age. At the "End" as it were. And-- the Grace with which he faces his End. Terry Jones re-addresses those years that have been pushed off into a netherworld of semi-existence in this society. We don't LIKE to look at those years. And that, is not NATURAL---. And the Beginning of this stage is what many feel is the beginning of the end. Not So. It is the culmination and the sharing of, potentially-- The Best, that LIFE has to offer. You only have to Love, and Share. And (hopefully) USE, the God Given strength that you have, as a ---MAN--- to care for those you Love, and those who come to you in need. That, is the Grace and Pride presented here in this book. Older societies had it, and We, America, would be very intelligent indeed to re-incorporate such a belief in our societal evolution. It is a waste of life's most precious resources, a Soul, a Heart, and the Mind which guides them, to NOT utilize people who have learned the MOST, of ANY of us all. Our Elders. Which we ALL will be ONE DAY. Should we all hope to be at the end of OUR days with full dignity and grace. Respected and Revered, with Dignity. A resource that even our youngest can delight in. And our most strident and DRIVEN middle-aged ones, occasionally, IF smart --Listen To.

Excellent book!

Jones, in very simple English, tells us what happened, where we're at, and where we need to go. I couldn't put the book down. There is so much wisdom in less than two hundred pages.
I spoke to two men who seldom finish a book, and both said they only read a third of the book, but what they did read was good. I told them that all they read was how we got off track. The how-to, the action to take, the gold, is in the last third of the book, just like it is in the last third of life.
Jones dispels the belief that our final years should be either of self-indulgence in our motor homes and on the Florida beaches, or of sitting around wondering why we can't be young. He provides all sorts of ways to be in truly enjoyable service, and suggests that our indulgence can come in the form of sharing our stories and watching as our mentorship makes a difference in the earth, our community, or in the life of a mentee.
Since the majority of Americans are going to be in the over-fifty range soon, the book could not be more timely. This book will change your way of looking at either what you've been missing (if you are over 50) or what you have to look forward to (if you are under fifty). At 54 and recently laid off from my sales career, The Elder Within has shown me the path for the rest of my life. It will be my handbook from here on out.

In his book "The Elder Within", Terry Jones brings the insights of a wide range of mythologists, psychologists and other experts to bear on the meaning of mature masculinity in the 21st century. His passion to explore his own "eldership" fuels his re-visioning of the traditional male roles of protector, provider and teacher. Offering simple, practical ways of becoming an elder in the family and community, Jones pictures the elder as generative, accessible, a listener, a steward of the planet, one who blesses, who makes himself available in quiet, attentive ways to being a resource. Jones's approach is gentle, invitational, inclusive, embodying his own idea of eldership. Readers will find comfort, encouragement and fresh ideas about their own process of embracing the elder within and living their own wisdom to the benefit of others. The book will be useful for group study as well as personal reflection.

In a society where father-hunger is of epidemic proportions and where retirement is commonly viewed as self-indulgent withdrawal, Terry Jones' vision of eldership is enormously important. Drawing on the rich history of eldership in other ages and cultures, Jones calls men to an egalitarian, non-patriarchal "mature masculinity" which is life-giving not only to men but also to women, children and the planet. I hope this book will be widely read and its message given embodiment.

Terry has written a landmark book for men who are entering the last phase of their life. It is an excellent handbook for tapping into the Elder within you, practical exercises and suggestions for being an effective Elder.
Highly recommended !...
