The paper presents a developing theory of gerotranscendence, that is – positive aging. It has arisen from empirical studies conducted by Lars Tornstam and his research team. The theory, which at its heart has change and development, explains the process of insight into ourselves as well as the process of opening to change, to the others, to the world, values, social norms and cultural patterns. It is visible in the assumptions and empirical implications presented by the authoress. In order to understand the theory better, the paper refers to the spiritual development and the definition of transcendence in the psychological approach of Maria Straś-Romanowska
