    Commentaries are included from Emmy Award-winning actor, author (Sleeping Where I Fall: A Chronicle, The Rainman’s Third Cure) and Buddhist priest, Peter Coyote, author and economist Dr. Robert Eyler, bestselling author Gary Braver (Elixir), Sonoma County, CA Supervisor and aging activist Shirley Zane, and Aging as a Spiritual Practice author Lewis Richmond. Viewers will also meet an albatross named Wisdom, a great white shark named Deep Blue and many other stellar seniors.
