Luminary Jean Houston describes Do Not Go Quietly this way: “Profound, compassionate and deeply useful, this book is a guide to the genius and capacities inherent in the second half of life. It brooks no whiney nay-saying, but rather offers a repositioning of the senior in our time. Seniors become the midwives of souls, the evoctateurs of self and society.”

Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi, author of Age-ing To Sage-ing and the father of spiritual eldering, says: “In Do Not Go Quietly, the Cappannelli’s remind us that the road to a more conscious future passes directly through the process of harvesting the wisdom and experience of our past and participating individually and collectively in writing a new ‘third act’ for the future.”
