What wisdom do you have that you can pass on? Have the difficult times in your life left you bitter, seeking someone to blame? Or have they left you juicy with self-awareness, purpose, and humor? Have you become a crone? Join author and Jungian analyst Jean Shinoda Bolen as she explores the enormous potential for wisdom in the last third of your life. "Any person who has made a deep connection to nurturing or sustaining others, any person who has been through vulnerability and suffering and has learned some wisdom from it," she explains, can embrace their later years with a depth of understanding that is of value to us all. Dr. Bolen is a clinical professor of psychiatry at the University of California at San Francisco. Her books include Crones Don¹t Whine: Concentrated Wisdom for Juicy Women, The Millionth Circle: How to Change Ourselves and the World – The Essential Guide to Women¹s Circles, and Goddesses in Every Woman: A New Psychology of Women. Hosted by Justine Toms.
