Description

Details

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.

This CD pair was just what I thought it would be. Ms. Woodman is a wonderful guide. I'm 64 and still peeling the onion of myself. (Posted on March 28, 2014)

Review for The Crown of Age Review by Allison F

Absolutely awesome. Marion Woodman is one of our rare truly wise elders with tremendous honestly and clarity. I have loved her for a while and this particular interview is both deep and intense and will resonate with the listener on multiple levels. Has the ability to change and break ground if you really go into it with a full and open heart. (Posted on April 3, 2013)

I didn't really enjoy this talk. It seemed to be more of a rambling talk through a number of different things that didn't end up making a point. (Posted on October 10, 2012)
