The Arc of Life: Huston Smith on Life, Death & Beyond 
with noted psychologist and gerontologist Dr. Ken Dychtwald


Praise for The Arc of Life

"The Arc of Life DVD is a magnificent contribution to understanding of Huston Smith and his work." 

-Harry R. Moody, Ph.D., Director of Academic Affairs, AARP

"I loved this interview with Huston better than any I've heard or seen in ten or fifteen years.  I found Ken Dychtwald's questions so clever, in that they solicited from Huston aspects of his philosophy that I had never heard before!  I found myself thinking, 'why didn't I ever ask him that?'  Of course, the answer is that Ken is a more astute interviewer, and possessed of an incredible knowledge on the subject at hand."

-Dana Sawyer, author Aldous Huxley: A Biography and 
currently writing the authorized huston Smith biography

"When we worked together on his memoir Tales of Wonder, I marveled at the great 'book' Huston was composing on aging--not by writing but by living it. So successfully was he overcoming aging’s frailties and hardship that he hardly noticed he was doing it, much less that he should write about it. Now, in conversation with Ken Dychtwald, Huston lets us eavesdrop through the window and take heart and be undaunted by what is to come. The DVD is called The Arc of Life but it could easily bear the subtitle: How to Grow Old and Remain Forever Young."

Jeffery Paine, co-author with Huston Smith, Tales of Wonder: Adventures Chasing the Divine, author of Re-enchantment: 
Tibetan Buddhism Comes to the West
& Father India

"Huston Smith ends the arc of his life with kindness and wisdom that is both ordinary and extraordinary. His interview with Ken Dychtwald inspires this writer to approach the final chapters with less fear and more hope." 

Don Lattin, author of THE HARVARD PSYCHEDELIC CLUB -- How Timothy Leary, Ram Dass, Huston Smith and Andrew Weil Killed the Fifties and Ushered in a New Age for America

"Rarely does one across so rich a feast as this! Huston Smith is in top form in this discussion with Ken Dychtwald. Huston Smith parries Dychtwald's thoughtful, searching questions with wisdom, erudition, humility and humor. This DVD deserves a wide audience and those who see it will be grateful for the opportunity."

Pravrajika Vrajaprana, Vedanta Society of Southern California, co-author Interpreting Ramakrishna
