Overview

"I've been a questioner all my life..."

So begins bestselling author and award-winning actress Shirley MacLaine, as she invites readers to join her on the most powerful, provocative journey of her life. Over the years, Shirley has firmly established herself as a fearless, iconoclastic thinker and seeker of truth. Now, as she confronts the realities and rewards of growing older, she reflects on the greater understanding of her own place in the universe that her experiences have brought to her.

Sparked by the experience of moving into a new house, she is inspired to look back across the remarkable professional and personal milestones she has experienced so far. Surrounded by books, pictures, and the artifacts of a life well lived, Shirley is able to recognize the profound power of synchronicity at work around her, discovering the invisible threads that stitch together the seemingly random events of her days, adding meaning even to the mundane.

Having grown older, she is increasingly concerned with the potential pitfalls of modern medicine. She shares personal insights into nutrition, acupuncture, homeopathy, and alternative medicine. Practical and bracing, here is advice for anyone looking to expand his or her understanding of health and well-being.

Moving beyond the physical, Shirley explores what has always interested her most — those things that are unseen. What is consciousness? What is the purpose of our lives? Are we alone in the universe? And perhaps the greatest mystery of all, what happens to us after death?

Filled with her trademark wit and candor, this is a fascinating, inspiring book that will delight and captivate Shirley's legions of fans and fellow travelers everywhere.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Hollywood actress Shirley MacLaine had a successful, indeed Oscar-winning career when she embarked on a second life as a new age author in the early '80s. Her writings obviously touched a chord; both Out on a Limb and The Camino became reader favorites. In this cleverly titled memoir, Shirley apprises her readers of more recent events and revelations, touching everything from spiritual well-being and the after-life to health, nutrition, and personal enlightenment. Insights and reflections from a happily aging sage.
Library Journal

Something about MacLaine beggars intelligent response, whether it is the provocative and perhaps illegal things her body did in Sweet Charityor the improbable and certainly entertaining things her soul has been doing for the last several thousand years. Beloved dancer and actress and the author of ten best-selling "memoirs," she concedes that she is now occasionally confused. She admits only to confusion about her car keys, but the rest of us, while glad of her company, wish she would clarify our confusion about whether she is talking about Ocean's Eleven, Star Beings, Stephen Hawking, or Atlantis, all of which she discusses with eager rapidity. In this fine roller-coaster ride of memory, speculation, and prognostication, MacLaine has a mighty good time, and many readers will be happy to ride with her. P.S. Just hang on until December 12, 2012, and tell them Shirley sent you. For most collections. [See Prepub Alert, 7/07.]

    You've gotta love her...

    Reading Shirley is like sitting down and having a conversation with an old friend. It feels comfortable and no matter what she says, because you are friends, you take it in and marvel about how different lives, different experiences, can make so much of a difference in shaping our world view.
    I thoroughly enjoyed "Sag-ing While Age-ing" because it reflects back to me the beautiful diversity that is the human experience.
    Shirley lays herself out there talking about many life experiences and how they have shaped her, about her philosophical leanings and the people who have been instrumental in helping her find them and about her beloved pup who happens to drive me crazy but she loves him.
    She also goes into a fair amount of depth making her case for the idea that extraterrestials have been around since the beginning of human experience and points to many of the resources that have led her to this conclusion.
    I must confess, I didn't know what to make of this, but it makes more sense to me that there is something to it than not. So... bottom line is, I enjoy reading Shirley, she does a nice job making her book readable, entertaining and challenging all at the same time. I give it an 8 out of 10.

    Shirley has tapped into her internal "Historic Knowledge"

    After reading over 60 books from quantum physics to spirit, I found her book very interesting.... This book just plain confirms another individual's perspective of what is happening in the world today...Not to mention our "physicals" potential connectivity to spirit. It is all about the moment...Even the present can connect you to your higher self if you can just listen. I do agree with many aspects of her thought process throughout the book! She is a very sharp and an intuitive individual that most people could learn from if they would keep an open mind. Her final perspective on 2012 is what I have read over and over again. Her statement on our consciousness being "upgraded" as we travel through the center of the galaxy is a common theme with the individuals that are aware. Watch and see.More individuals will be very aware of spirit then are not aware in the next few years.

    This book does cause one to question our government's honesty about information concerning UFO's. There seems to be facts supported by scientists in this book. While reading the book, I paused a great deal to think about my own life experiences and try to connect with the author's experiences.

    Old News

    Ms. MacLaine's latest book Sage-ing While Age-ing is a disappointment in comparison to her earlier volumes, most of which I have read with delight. This work seems to be a rehashing of all the esoterica she could think of to put in the book. Most people interested in the occult have heard about or read about almost everything she has written, so it was old news to me and I'm sure to many others. I rather liked it when she actually shared a trip and wrote what she experienced during her travels. Also, it was a bit disconcerting to see how she has no filter over her belief system and is willing to see everything she learns as the 'truth'. She did provide a couple of new names for me to look up, so it wasn't a complete loss.

    Shirley MacLaine tells her brave, compelling story about who we are and where we came from. For those of us seeking the truth about our origin, our DNA, our emotional environment and the connecton to outer space. It's reeling with facts from reknown scientists and professors. A provacative, heartfelt read. Nancy
