In a youth orientated, male dominated society women over fifty are often invisible. Until now: women who came of age during the feminist movement in the sixties and seventies have been rejecting stereotypes, exploring new possibilities and challenging old limitations. Using archetypal goddesses we explore the diversity and complexity of the feminine psychology of the mature woman ‘the crone’. As more women cross the threshold into the third phase of their life their competence, independence, experiences and resources can be used to celebrate their post menopausal zest and juicy ‘crone’ years. This course of self discovery, fun and active learning would be of interest to both men and women.
