Publisher's Summary

Physician and Jungian analyst Jean Shinoda Bolen takes us to the horizon of our understanding about the special wisdom that comes to women after menopause in The Wise-Woman Archetype. Join the best-selling author of Goddesses in Everywoman as she plows ancient ground to uncover the roots of the sacred wise woman/crone archetype. Early societies, Bolen teaches, looked at menopause as a "withholding of the blood", not to make a child, as in youth, but to make wisdom. Bolen shows how women today can tap in to this powerful archetype and reclaim their natural wisdom and authority.
