On The Crown of Age, Jungian analyst Marion Woodman examines what it means to pass through life's many "crossroads and thresholds," emerging as an elder, the embodiment of wisdom, wholeness, and truth. Mining the riches of her own life, including her battle with cancer, Woodman illustrates the paradox of growing old: that while our physical strength wanes, our spiritual strength "blossoms, petal by petal." With poetic insight she describes the archetypal passage in a woman's life from mother to virgin to crone, and the preparation of our souls for the great crown we receive only at the end of life. The Crown of Age is a profound offering of wisdom that refl ects Marion Woodman's long and celebrated career as a writer, teacher, analyst, and now, trusted elder.

About the Author:

Marion Woodman is a writer, international teacher and workshop leader, and Jungian analyst. She is a graduate of the C.G. Jung Institute in Zurich. Her bestselling book Addiction to Perfection is considered to be a landmark study on the spiritual and psychological roots of addiction in women.

From AudioFile:

Woodman is talking about more than avoiding the reduced capacities of old age. She's a Jungian analyst and celebrated writer about male and female archetypes, and she gives a far-reaching account of how later life can be a positive integration of the forces in our culture and family that foreshadowed us. Though the program's first half lacks focus, the second is a magnificent picture of how to integrate the Western notion of willfulness with the powerful energies, seen and unseen, that bubble inside of us and befuddle our best attempts to live without respecting them. Woodman's ideas are so packed with meaning you'll rewind often to be sure you haven't missed something important. T.W. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
