I wrote this book to reach an aging population who struggles with purpose and meaning while navigating limitations, losses, and the challenges of a very quickly changing world

There is a new generation of grandparents leading the way these days – it is one filled with wisdom as well as restlessness in response to the world around them. They have the vantage point of life experience while at the same time still being a student of modern-day technology, social media, and current modes of communication. To help address these newfound challenges while staying grounded and present, wellness counselor, author, and grandmother of seven, Aukje Kapteyn, has released her new book “Grounded Grandmothers.”

“I wrote this book to reach an aging population who struggles with purpose and meaning while navigating limitations, losses, and the challenges of a very quickly changing world,” said Kapteyn. “My book is also for those who want to be relevant and impactful while finding calm within and renewing a sense of fulfillment. Furthermore, this generation seems to have a need to enhance a real connection to both the natural world and the generation that is now growing up in it.”

Kapteyn utilizes meditation, journaling and Bioenergetic exercises and other processing techniques to enhance the reader’s grounding while integrating the spiritual and sensual. Through new perspectives filled with humor and down-to-earth guidance; the book presents stories, anecdotes, and reflections and each chapter has a section on practical exercises to help the reader move forward.

Perfect for grandparents at any stage in their life as well as those who have struggled during the pandemic, “Grounded Grandmothers” will help readers renew their purpose while they navigate limitations and challenges in modern society and encourage them to find self-fulfillment, vitality, and peace within.
