A radical rewriting of the future for all women approaching their mid and elder years.
There can be a perverse pleasure, as well as a sense of rightness and beauty, in insisting on flowering just when the world expects you to become quiet and diminish. Sharon Blackie
For any woman over 50 who has ever asked ‘What now? How do I wish to age?’ comes a life-changing new book showing how your second half may be your most dynamic yet.
Rich with the combination of myth, landscape and eco-feminism that took her earlier work If Women Rose Rooted to cult status, Hagitude reclaims the mid-years as a liberating, alchemical moment – from which to shift into your chosen, authentic and fulfilling future. Drawing inspiration from mythic figures and archetypes ranging from the wise woman and the creatrix to the henwife and the trickster, as well as modern mentors, Sharon Blackie plots a liberating new path into elderhood.
Hagitude is a radical rewriting of the future for all women in their mid and elder years, its pages rich with possibility, the promise of adventure and influence, and an emphasis on a woman’s value and impact in the second half of life.
