His new book, The Divine Human: The Final Transformation of Sacred Aging, argues that our new longevity has become a new developmental stage in the human life cycle, offering humanity profound opportunities for psychological, spiritual and mystical transformation, expanding not only our lifespan but our awareness of God as well. What if we discover in this awakening that we are already divine? What if this realization transforms our very nature and purpose in the world? The Divine Human answers these questions and more, revealing the ultimate meaning of the New Aging.
