About the Author

Photo of author Lucy AykroydLucy raised a large family in Aberdeenshire before becoming a life enhancing care giver and end of life doula. Now in Sussex she focuses her love and attention on her magical grandchildren.

Her creative edge and increasingly,  her contribution to the wider earth community is exploring eldering and how Rites of Passage can transform these life transitions.

Empowering others to step up to the exciting challenge of eldering is the next challenge… future generations need to feel our breath on the back of their necks, but as Stephen Jenkinson says, ‘ Eldering is not a default of ageing.’

Deep listening to the more than human world and learning from them  is an important element of understanding  how we as older people need to be in these times of radical change.
