- Inspirational Insights on Relationships & Life
Imagine you could have a cup of tea with some of the wisest people you know. They are a lot like you, except a generation older. You can ask them tough questions to help prepare for what comes next in your life.
For Warm Cup of Wisdom, Dori Jones Yang interviewed nine women she admires and asked them to share their wisdom about issues we all think about: joy, anger, loss, forgiveness, hope and peace. With humility, honesty, and humor, these wise women opened their hearts to her with warm advice and touching stories. She also asked life questions about finding your calling, midlife transitions, aging, and making a difference, as well as relationship questions about raising teenagers, relating to adult children, making marriage last, and dealing with difficult people. Their answers, she found, were both insightful and inspiring.

"Both validating and affirming, Warm Cup of Wisdom offers thoughtful advice from elders on issues we all wrestle with as we go through life. By telling their personal stories, these wise women reveal how challenges in aging might be met creatively, and a new life envisioned. Dori Jones Yang’s own wisdom is reflected in her careful choice of penetrating questions, as well as in the candid, articulate, and perceptive elders she interviewed. Her questions are provocative, the responses often surprising."
