Walk with us...

Genuine friendship, making friends; surely this is what life is truly about. In Third Age we’re all in this together: possible age health issues, possible age loneliness, possible even probable age discrimination. And the bigee: that looming inevitable. 

Yes…the world over, Elders are Elders… 

The Spirit Within shows us that we are not alone. You and I have friends ‘out there’ to meet, others whose priorities are achieving peace and happiness for themselves and, if possible, the world…yes, our Spirit Within is where true peace and happiness exist – within you, within me, within ourselves. 

Many of us find moving difficult and many can’t leave their bed without help…our FREE Library resources are aimed at all of us Elders…ALL! Self-care podcasts, Words of Comfort interviews…it’s there, it’s FREE!

And for Elders with eyesight difficulties there is an audio of each page of the website: just email thespiritwithinusall@gmail.com with ‘Web audio’ in the subject line.

And for Elders with hearing difficulties, there are transcripts of each of the ‘Words of Comfort’ interviews: email thespiritwithinusall@gmail.com with ‘Transcript’ in the subject line, and the title of which interview you would like to read. Transcripts of the podcasts are being prepared.

The Spirit Within we will be offering much much more over the coming months…and if you like our underlying ethos, if you have time, if you are willing to discuss helping out, then please drop us a message through the contact page here, or an email to thespiritwithinusall@gmail.com

Thank you! Sincerely Swithin

‘Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. Walk beside me and be my friend.’ (philosopher and writer Albert Camus)


At the moment, The Spirit Within is new; it’s gathering momentum, announcing to the world, “WE ARE HERE!”.

I have three main ‘visions’: one is of an online International Friendship of support…especially perhaps to Third Agers who have to stay indoors, or even in bed.

My second is of this huge online conference centre – akin in my mind to the design of the Sydney Opera House! Here will be seminars, courses, entertainments, you name them! And all designed for us Third Agers.

The third is something akin to an online Roman Forum, or World Union of Third Agers , where we can share our differences yes, yet use the voting power of our shared agreeings to ‘make the changes we want to see in the world’, to help the planet survive, to make this world, our world, a better place for all people of all ages, everywhere.

So yes, I am looking for collaborators; affiliate-facilitators and like-minded visionaries to turn this vision into a reality.

And yes, although we are a not-for-profit, money needs to be earnt. Invoices need to be paid; and without earnings there can be no profit for the charities which I want you, fellow Third Agers, to nominate.

So…please do get in touch! Thank you…
