The New Old Age Movement

Gain a new perspective on your older age!

 

The Book -- 

The New Old Age ~ A five-point principle for growing old gracefully

 
*About the Book *

The purpose of this book is to help people overcome their hang ups around aging through the power of acceptance. It challenges us with the word 'old' and the term 'old age' as a mark of truth of who we become as we live beyond age 50. This book is about living a full-life of gratitude from birth to death, and that we must bring to the table, our issues around "old," as it applies to human life. It invites us to accept and honor that truth.

It speaks openly on the aging challenges so many of us face, and pinpoints the resistance, denial and evasiveness we counter around getting old and growing old.

Author argues that the obsessive battle around staying young can be detrimental, and that to a large degree it has damaged our self-esteem to excel emotionally and psychologically into our latter years of life.

It is also an aging preparatory book for youth and adults under age 50, foreshadowing even greater years ahead for youth today as they someday grow into their elder life.

This is not a book filled with theory and technicality around aging. 
Rather, it's a book of spiritual enlightenment, gratitude and 
acceptance for all stages of life on equal terms.

The New Old Age, a book and a guidepost filled with practical suggestions, inspiration and validated examples of others who have practiced some of the principles described in this book.


My most compelling motivation for writing this book ~ two-fold: 
(1) to glorify aging, based on its concept originated out of the one man show "Old Happens," (2) to take this 'age glorification concept' to the next level by reaching a broader audience and inspiring them to seriously consider a new way of looking at 'old' as it applies to human life, based on numerous scriptures found throughout the bible, can be found in this book.

About the Movement 

The New Old Age Movement (aka NOAM) is a movement to inspire and support a new generation of like-minded individuals, age 50 and over, who are joining force to redefine the meaning of old age by eradicating the negative connotation of what it means to grow old in our society. The aim of this movement is to set a precedent for equality and respect for human life in all its stages from birth to death. The NOA movement is about staying active and being fully engaged with new ideas, and new hopes and dreams with a key focus on living life to its fullest.

 

 

 

History behind the Movement {NOAM} 

 

The New Old Age Movement (NOAM) was inspired in 2013 by David GloverThe idea was conceived after Glover’s numerous performances of his one man show, “Old Happens,” when Glover noticed that his somewhat humorous glorification around growing old character was more than just for laughs and entertainment to the audience, he realized he had to take note of that and bring to the audience that hidden message they’ve been yearning to hear ~ Old is okay. For many in the audience the context was heartfelt, it was motivational, and to a degree, it was a healing. And, of course, it was entertaining.

 

Much of  Glover’s own life experience written in this piece came out reflectively through the audience.
“Like so many of us, I reached a low point in my life turning 65. I was feared by the thought: You’re too old, nobody will want anything to do with you. Then came the idea to write a story on aging, a story that would change my perception about growing old through the acceptance of it. This perception was written into a solo performance play. So now I perform the show and I can truthfully say, this show has changed my life, and I believe it will do so for others.”

 

Glover then realized this is more than just a show, this is a concept with multiple mediums.
“If this show is becoming healing art for the aging then there has to be a prolongation  of that healing in a way that viewers can reinvigorate its effectiveness long after the show. One can agree that live entertainment and art performances of various kind can divert our mood effectively from sad to joy to tears, in the moment. But far too soon, it wears off.”

 

Glover went on to expand his healing art vision into  recorded  music, by producing a (work-in-progress) show albums containing six selected songs from the show, in January 2013. Then to write a book in October 2013.
