Skip the midlife crisis and embrace the joys of aging with this “lighthearted manual on how to become a juicy and wise old woman” (Isabelle Allende, recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom). Having dedicated her life to helping women realize their full potential at every phase of life, distinguished psychiatrist and bestselling author Jean Shinoda Bolen, MD, continues her inspiring and illuminating work with Crones Don’t Whine. Here, Bolen defines thirteen qualities women should cultivate to continue their personal growth into their crone years. Featuring brief essays and small practices, this lighthearted book gives readers resources to turn to again and again. Life doesn’t end at forty. So why do so many women act as if it does? Put aside your midlife crisis symptoms and embrace the aging process with a new and empowering archetype for older women: Crones Don't Whine—they’re juicy, confident, and fierce about what matters to them. They speak the truth with compassion. They listen to their bodies, reinvent themselves, and savor the good in their lives. As Bolen explains, crone years are “growing” years in women’s lives. In this new stage, women can finally devote their time, energy, and creativity to what really matters to them. “A wise and honest book” —Alice Walker, Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award–winning author of The Color Purple

A Tiny Universe's Companion accompanies A Tiny Universe, a textbook on astrology which is based on one version of the Birth-Chart of the Universe known as Thema Mundi. Companion expands on the fi rst book by exploring a number of techniques which were refined by astrologers several centuries ago, but have since lost their significance in modern times. Practices such as the division between day and night which creates the accidental dignity of Planetary Sect, and the forgotten rule of Contention (munakara) which warns of the danger of crossing boundaries, are both reminders of the impact of Sect on the seven original planets. A first century predictive system originating in Persia called Firdaria has been re-introduced in the past few years and is once more gaining in popularity. Firdaria relies heavily on the principles of Sect to direct the individual's lifespan via different planetary periods along with the sequencing of planets according to the Chaldean Order. This method is examined in detail in the final chapters of Companion using modernized interpretations of text from 1st Century astrologer Vettius Valens, and Johannes Schoener from the 16th Century C.E. Planets' rulership over the twelve houses is a cornerstone of traditional astrology's chart interpretation and a ruling planet's condition determines its success or failure in managing the aff airs of its house. Issues such as mediocre quality, troublesome relationships, poor placement, or lack of sight (aversion) suggest stress for the planet and indicate difficult repercussions in the areas of life for which the ruling planet is responsible. Patterns which normally lie unseen or dormant within the chart become animated through rulership, and with the reintroduction of lost models, the chart, and life on Earth once more become reflections of the larger Universe.

Face Illness and Find Hope Everyone faces illness. Whether it’s a personal health crisis or sickness a loved one is experiencing, none of us escape this life without encountering some form of illness or death. While we can try to ignore the reality, internationally known author and speaker Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen suggests we do the exact opposite: face it. By encountering the frightening world of serious illness and death, we can better uncover how it gives us purpose. Trust what you know in your bones. In probing and studying the health trials we face, Dr. Bolen shares how what we learn often connects to what we know to be true. As a psychiatrist and Jungian analyst, Dr. Bolen has an acute understanding of what shapes a person, particularly as it relates to one’s sense of balance and wholeness. Based on her knowledge and experience, she guides readers to find the truth buried in their own bones. A tool for help and healing. While encountering sickness is inevitable, healing often seems harder to come by. We are left broken open when serious illness hits. While there is no single key to recovery, it is rare to find healing without first addressing the pain. This book serves as a guide to finding purpose in the pain. Through practicing self-compassion and empathy for others, and actively listening and learning, we set ourselves on a path to thoughtfully unravel the process of finding hope. Read Dr. Bolen’s Close to the Bone and find… • An insightful book for anyone living with a life-threatening illness (or caring for a loved one who is ill) • Encouragement for facing the trials and trauma of illness by relying on the wisdom we all have within • A supplemental guide for those who want to form support circles If books such as Invisible Acts of Power; When Things Fall Apart; or No Mud, No Lotus have helped you, then Close to the Bone is the next book you need to read.
