Woman at the Edge of Two Worlds, The Spiritual Journey Through Menopause, Book 9 of the Medicine Woman Series
Unlike so many important events, one of the most significant changes in every woman’s adult life passes by without ritual or recognition, and that is menopause. In this book, Lynn Andrews redefines this change of life from a source of shame and embarrassment to the transformation into wise-blood, a time of rebirth and a gateway to the most sacred time in a woman’s existence on earth, the time when she can at last put aside the stresses of her younger years and discover the deeper meanings she has sought.
'Woman at the Edge of Two Worlds is about the fire within and the great mysteries around the passage of menopause. This book is dedicated to all my sisters who have entered this gateway and been transformed. It is a book about the search for knowledge about our own bodies and the arousal of our inner fire, about dancing with that fire and being transformed. As you learn the old way taught by the Sisterhood of the Shields, you will be reintroduced to the deep, internal beauty that comes with age, the beauty that makes itself visible by virtue of its innate power. As you feel this beauty, you will express it, and all those with whom you come into contact will be touched by your newfound strength, your heightened awareness, and the loveliness that emanates from deep within you.'
Critical acclaim for Woman at the Edge of Two Worlds:
Susan M. Lark, M.D., author of Women's Menopause Self-Help: 'This beautifully and sensitively written book should be a helpful guide to all women going through menopause. It describes the spiritual dimensions of one of the most important transitions in a woman's life. I highly recommend it.'
Alanna E. Tarkington, psycyhotherapist: 'With this book, Lynn Andrews heals women by reframing our old cultural definition of menopause, which is loss and worthlessness, into one of love, power, wisdom, and most important, self-esteem. You will throw away your old fears after reading this powerful gift!'
Marianne Williamson: 'Lynn Andrews is one of my favorite writers. She helps every woman find a sense of her own importance.'
