Meeting Ron Pevny and completing his Ghost Ranch Retreat pleasantly accelerated my quest to age well and on purpose. Conscious Living, Conscious Aging provides a background, curriculum and coaching about becoming intentional engaged about my next breath, chapter and footprint. I’m a wiser elder with this essential framework and book at my side.”
