Product description

Product Description

These days, most women can expect to live several decades beyond menopause. Until now, there have been virtually no guidebooks for this later life journey, for it is one that our ancestors, with their much lower life expectancy, were rarely privileged to take. Elderwoman is just such a guidebook. It promises that whoever sets out on her “third age” journey in a spirit of curiosity and awareness, consciously aligning herself with the natural processes of aging, and with the rhythms of the natural world around her, will discover unexpected richness, new kinds of power, freedom, and ever deepening joy, as she grows at last into her full potential as a woman and becomes a true elder, a spiritual leader for her times.

The voices and guiding hands of wise elders have been missing in our modern, Western, youth-oriented culture. But with millions of 'baby-boomers' now in their elder years, this is starting to change. If our threatened planet is to come back into balance, these voices and hands will be more and more in evidence, around the world.

Blending ancient wisdom with down to earth common sense, science with spirituality, and humor with poetry, Marian Van Eyk McCain, in a gentle, conversational style, leads us beyond conventional thinking and into a new world of transformational possibility: the world of the 21st century elderwoman.
