Product description

How to Be an Elder presents the culmination of Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Est?s' masterwork, inviting us to "come into our own as wiser and wild souls" through six sessions of teachings, stories, poetry, and blessings. In this fifth and final volume of Dr. Est?s' landmark series, we will explore how it is that through the gathering of our years we become a beautiful refuge for ourselves, our Souls, and for those who come after us. "Did I mention, dear brave souls," reminds Dr. Est?s, "that you came with all the seedlings needed to do your work, to take your venerable places in life? Now is the just-right time, like Sleeping Beauty, to break the enchantment, to truly awaken and awaken others, as either a rookie Dangerous Old Woman, or a mid-career Dangerous Old Woman, or as Crone with Crown complete!"
