The path to becoming a spiritual elder: how to turn life’s trials into priceless wisdom.
Full Description

We are each crowned twice in this lifetime, teaches the legendary Jungian analyst Marion Woodman. Much is written about the promise of the first crowning, at birth. But what of the second, which comes only after a lifetime of experience? This is the "crown of age," she says, a symbol for the culmination of our inner and outer development as human beings. 

On The Crown of Age, 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 a battle with cancer that nearly ended it, 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 virgin to mother to crone, and the preparation of our souls for the great crown we receive only when life ends. The Crown of Age is a crowning achievement in Marion Woodman's long and celebrated career as a writer, teacher, analyst, and now, trusted elder.

Timeless Wisdom

I listened to Marion Woodman on cassette tapes in my forties and now, in my seventies, am repurchasing her work in digital form. I am in a different stage of life now, so I am hearing different things this time around. The one thing that is constant is the timelessness of her wisdom. I am still learning from Marion Woodman, and expect that I always will. She is a true gift to anyone who is interested in Jungian psychology and the evolution of consciousness over a lifetime.

Review for The Crown of Age

I love Marion Woodman, she has journeyed through life with tremendous energy, integrity and wisdom. She has much to share with us about our inner lives and more recently on growing older. This is a precious gift.
