  • What was I thinking reading this book It was a bit disappointing and reductive actually I felt For all that is celebrated women and womanliness and had some areas of comfort, normalizing the aging process it still very much had a heteronormative outlook hard to avoid I suppose living in a hetero patriarchy where all the goddess traditions stem from patriarchal systems of belief.There was an and lesbians acknowledgement from time to time or a refusal to name the gender of the romantic other which [...]


  • Would recommend reading Goddesses in Everywoman first to understand the premise and how the archetype plays out over the lifespan before reading Goddesses in Older Women The insights rang true, as do the inner conflicts described At 47 and perimenopausal, I am ready to embrace being a juicy crone Loved what she had to say about womens circles and transformation.


  • Sometimes very special books come to you in unexpected ways I picked this used book up at the Big Book Sale for Friends of the San Francisco Library The insight I got from reading about archetypes in women over fifty was wonderful From intellectual to spiritual to psychic to meditative wisdom Jean Shinoda Bolen beautifully defines the roles older women embrace But the recounting of the myths of Sekhmet, a Goddess of wrath, and Bawdy Baubo, a Goddess of laughter, hit my center core The stories we [...]


  • I actually wasn t sure I would like this book when I first started it but once I was into it, I did really enjoy it It was interesting reading about the different mythical goddesses and their strengths It was actually inspiring to think about how they are in all of us to some extent It wasn t a quick read but it was an interesting one I definitely could relate to some of the ideas about the power of women after fifty I am embracing my third stage of life and am going to live it to the fullest.


  • This book is about archetypes of older women, of juicy crones I found it to be both inspiring and empowering Our culture tends to discount older women and women buy into that to some extent This book is a reminder of the amazing power of older women who have gained wisdom and experience to stand clearly and strongly in themselves and reach out to others in healthy healing ways.


  • Other than the overt feminist BS that pervaded the entire thing, it is a book I would recommend to crones or those on the cusp I have a lot of Hestia s archetype, but none of her confidence.


  • Not my usual thing Not awful As long as you can keep the mindset that the concepts are descriptive, and not prescriptive, it s pretty interesting Minimal woo woo.


  • A fascinating look at human archetypes through the lens of Greek, Roman, and other Goddesses A useful tool for self exploration Enjoyable to read.


  • Jean Shinoda Bolen is a scholar of the sacred feminine or the traditions of goddesses in ancient religion This is a fascinating and enlightening study of how sacred feminine figures virtually all disappeared from religions centuries ago Why Because certain dominant and patriarchal societies of the day demanded that all figures of deity become male Bolen quotes Merlin Stone in When God was a Woman Why is it continually inferred that the age of pagan religions, the time of worship of female deitie [...]


  • I have a longstanding interest in goddess archetypes and their history, so this book caught my attention in a Totnes second hand bookshop on hols I wasn t disappointed It s the perfect companion for women on the threshold fifty, or later, encouraging you to find and live out your juicy crone self A book to dip into when direction or inspiration is needed I was already familiar with my dominant archetype but enthralled to see how she is getting left behind as her crone version steps up after year [...]


  • Women are not respected Some could say that things have changed since Middle Age, or that there are differences between countries or less developed It s true But when we watch statistics that show growing violence toward women, domestic or not, differences in the working places, attacks agains women s civil rights, then we can say that it s happening right in the middle of developed countries Let s not talk about slavery and torture of women and little girls, because it s something that s been [...]


  • I was amazed at this book It was about the menopausal years, but filled with advice about growing older with grace and wisdom Jean Shinoda Bolen is a Jungian anaylist, and gave many tips for what she called the third act of life for women, now that their childbearing years and family duties have diminished, leaving them time to pursue interests She describes lives of many women we will recognize, and some that are ourselves I think she is a wonderful author, and highly recommend this book Ms Bo [...]


  • The truth of the matter is that I am an old woman 58 this past December I am having difficulty accepting this state of affairs Once, when I was a young woman, I read the Goddesses in Every Woman In fact, I took an 8 week workshop with several other women led by a Jungian Psychologist It really helped me find and celebrate my spiritual me, my place in the grand scheme of things.At the moment, I can t find my place Where do I fit What has become of me So I have decided to return to a study of the [...]


  • For those of us post 50, this book is a reminder that with age comes wisdom collective wisdom from the pre patriarchal goddesses Our country needs to think about honoring the aged, male or female, not just worshipping the young People gain wisdom through their experiences, and I think women are particularly prone to this as we tend to be introspective Men I know think about and fear mortality while women seek ways to give back to society, to become creative, to live life to its fullest Please [...]


  • It took me a long time to get to reading this book It sat on my shelf and I had to wait to recover from some traumatic events in my life to have the energy to read it I am glad I finally read it, all the way to the end The goddess archetypes and how they permeate our lives and our behaviors is fascinating and would have been helpful knowledge to have many lives ago The end of the book and the discussion of woman s circles was especially inspirational I would consider this a life changing book fo [...]


  • Le este libro por pertenecer a un c rculo de lectura lleno de mujeres maduras Y no es que no haya disfrutado ley ndolo pero definitivamente no es lo m o Demasiado self help para mi gusto Sin embargo, no hay ning n libro tan malo que de l no se pueda rescatar algo bueno y lo que me gust de este fue la manera en la autora tom los mitos de las diosas sobre todo las griegas y los convirti en met foras de diferentes situaciones y etapas de la mujer moderna En unos veinte a os tendr que regresar a lee [...]


  • This book provides excellent insight into the way different goddess archtypes play out in older women Bolen writes from a Jungian perspective and shows effectively how who we are changes as we age For those who missed her first book on this topic, she includes material previously covered and expands upon those archtypes in older women as well Some of this material helped me to understand some of my own feelings and perspectives shifts It s written in clear, understandable and concise prose, and [...]


  • This was pretty good if you already read and enjoyed her first book, Goddesses in Everywoman If not, it s hard to figure out where she s going Also, although I consider myself a feminist, there s patriarchy bashing than I would have expected, which while not strictly untrue, gives the book a slightly old fashioned, hectoring feel Still and all, the core message is a good one the crone years can be a time of empowerment wisdom and humor I especially like that she found some humorous goddesses to [...]


  • A followup to the author s Goddesses in Everywoman, and updates the Greek Goddesses for women over 50 Also adds in a few other Goddesses from other cultures, giving depth to what women can do with a major change in life A bit redundant if you read the first book real close to this one because she repeats the basic myths of the Greek Goddesses, but the other details are informative and interesting.


  • Interesting description of the roles, archetypes and destinies of greek goddesses and what an impact it has on todays life as well as how does it relate to the life stages of a woman A bit early for my age, but still interesting Probably Goddess in every woman would be better for all below 45 od 50 years of age.


  • Whether one is a dame d une certain age or in the bloom of youth, it is undeniable that the archetypes embodied by goddesses have been kept in the basement of our collective psyches by a patriarchical society Goddesses in Older Women allows us all to increase our awareness of these archetypes, exploring them as possibilities that go beyond what the culture presents.


  • I enjoyed reading this book, it has good info on several female deities and how they re seen and can be seen in our daily life and how we can relate to their characteristics.It also talks about women s role in society and when it comes to wisdom in Older Women, talks about Women Circles and such events that really help women and spreads their knowledge.


  • Again with the detail on the goddesses of mythology Women entering menopause and empty next years will love the core of the book but getting to that core requires effort All the detail of archetypes was not necessary for the message here The core message is good and perhaps her newer books cut out the exhaustive detail At least I hope.


  • This book is part of my personal library I love this woman s work I recommend it for women who are on their spiritual path I would suggest reading Goddesses in Every Woman first, so you get a feeling for the subject.


  • ah to be a juicy old crone and be proud of it this was a lovely journey through goddesses and how they relate to the third phase of womens lives and circles of womenways keep your women friends has been my advice to my daughterey are always there for you


  • If you re ready to be a juicy crone his book is for you Very easy to read but illuminating on the goddess archetypes and their relationship to women as they approach their latter years Optimistic, empowering.


  • Wonderfully insightful both personally and culturelyOne of my favorite authors I have read almost every book she has written What a treasure Read this if you want to know about yourself as well as being part of the human race


  • This book really got me thinking about what it is to be a woman, a woman in today s society, and a woman over 50 It helped me learn to cherish it all the by stopping to reflect on what it all means to me A growth experience Menere IS a Gods in Older Men


  • I definitely liked this book but I m a Jungian than a Freudian as is the author A good book with a lot of references to invite further reading For satiasreviews 201


  • It has some interesting stuff on myths and legends from across all cultures, but really, I m not spending much time figuring out what feminine archetype I m currently in There s too much mumbo jumbo in it for my taste.
