Hagitude by Sharon Blackie
For the woman who wishes to flourish without chasing eternal youth comes Hagitude.
‘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
What is Hagitude? It means being at ease with the unique power women embody in the second half of their life. It means having a strong sense of who we are and what we have to offer the world. And a firm belief in our place in the ever-shifting web of life.
For the woman who wishes to flourish without chasing eternal youth comes Hagitude. Interweaving myth, psychology, landscape and ecofeminism, acclaimed author Sharon Blackie reclaims the mid years as an alchemical moment – from which to shift into your chosen, authentic and fulfilling future – and the elder years as a path to dynamic influence.
‘A fascinating book … well researched, packed with stories and bursting with lovely descriptions of the natural world. There’s plenty in it to inspire women of every age.’ Christina Patterson, Sunday Times
