Arrange to have Dr. Karpel speak to your organization. Many groups, communities, and companies have benefited from having insights into the process of aging and the care involved.

I love good books, because they are born from real and personal stories. Where someone doesn’t tell me, they invite me. They show me ways to “come alive and start living.” Mara invites us to appreciate and grasp what is already within. And she’s not just a teacher; she’s a guide who walks with us. The book may be an invitation to women perhaps, but after reading the book, I can tell you I definitely want some of what she’s talking about: the permission to live out loud, in our power, in the light, every day. Count me in. It’s down-to-earth. Thank you, Mara. And I agree, the best is yet to come.

In The Passionate Life: Creating Vitality and Joy at Any Age, Dr. Mara Karpel gifts us with the wisdom of dozens of experts in the fields of peak performance, lifestyle, spirituality and aging, just to name a few. She highlights the essence of many best selling books and weaves their expertise together through personal stories and lovely narratives. I will return to this book whenever I need a reminder of the possibilities in life. Most compelling is her unwavering candor about her own life journey. As a repeat guest on her radio show, Dr. Mara Karpel & Your Golden Years, I’ve been blessed to get to know Mara over the past two years. As I reader of her book, I feel honored by her continual invitation to deepen our friendship through her personal stories. Dr. Karpel is a treasure to her clients, and Mara a gift to her listeners and now her readers.

The Passionate Life is an excellent roadmap to help others discover their passions and live their purpose no matter their age or setbacks. Dr. Mara Karpel has put together a masterpiece that I recommend everyone to read.

Mara is a living embodiment of what it looks like to live a purpose driven life: energetic, bright-eyed, and joyful. Fortunately, for the rest of us, Mara’s purpose is to help each of us find our own purpose. This is a book about how to get out of our own way and reconnect with that inner voice and ask: By what measures do you want to define yourself? What truly drives you? All answers lead toward living a happier, healthier, more passionate and purpose driven life.
~ Steve Kane, Certified Yoga Instructor and Facilitator of “The Art of Happiness”
Dr. Mara Karpel shows us that a life full of happiness, meaning and vitality can be found at any age. She shares empowering and inspiring stories from experts on a wide variety of topics, including relationships, nutrition, stress management and spirituality (to name a few). Dr. Mara offers life-changing, but also practical, strategies that will lead you through a journey of self-discovery. Living a meaningful life often requires us to step outside of our comfort zones, question societal norms, and even face a bit of adversity—this is part of what makes life rich and varied! Dr. Karpel addresses this beautifully and provides tools to help you make your dreams a reality even when you are faced with challenges and setbacks. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to create something new, or who simply wants to experience more contentment and appreciation for the life they are currently living!
