In many cultures, women are revered as they grow older. Their wisdom, insight, and strengths are recognized as treasuers to be shared. Our Western culture is different--as women age they are frequently ignored and cast aside by a youth-oriented society. For millions of women facing midlife, the prospect of getting older is intimidating, bleak, and anything but a source of power. Now, in this magical new book, author Ann Thomas uses myths, folktales, and stories to help women get in touch with their spiritual selves as they move into and through the second half of life. The Women We Becomeexplores the difficult and sometimes frightening aspects of aging, and reveals the tasks or pathways toward meaning and fulfillment in old age. Chapters include: • The Reality of Death • Accepting Life's Limits • Relating to the Dark Feminine • The Search for Meaning About the Author Ann G. Thomas, an interpretive storyteller and licensed psychotherapist in private practice in Northern California. She has worked with women in midlife and beyond for more than thirty years, and has served on the boards of organizations providing services to the elderly.
