Power of the Crone by Clarissa Pinkola Estes
“Entering the terrain of wisdom occurs at any age.
We sometimes step, sometimes stumble, and at other times
we are pulled into the territory of the Crone
when the need for a deeper, larger understanding
of our most meaningful path can no longer be denied;
when the gifts hidden in our challenges must be brought forth.”
4 Thursday Mornings,
November 8 – Dec 6 (no class Nov 22)
9:30 am – Noon
Location: New Brighton, MN
AGING is a challenge! Join the conversation about how to change your views about aging. In 2017-18 I facilitated two “Crone” Circles. The second group has finished their third round of meetings (aka Crone Grad School) ! And yes, we accomplished so much, and we had a lot of fun.
What’s a Crone?
The very word implies a wrinkled, hunchbacked old woman, unwanted and unloved. Women reaching an advanced age are often dismissed as useless hags, with nothing to celebrate. Times are changing, and more and more women are welcoming this aspect of their lives. Why not celebrate this next phase of life with some like-minded women?
We will share stories, discuss important questions about aging, read poetry, sing & dance, practice mindfulness through guided meditation, written exercises and a bit of homework. Each session will begin with Celebration and conclude with Discovery & Intention.
“I think my house is haunted; every time I look in the mirror,
there’s an old lady blocking my view!”
