Description

'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

For any woman over fifty who has ever asked 'What now? Who do I want to be?' comes a life-changing new book showing how your second half may be your most dynamic yet.

Rich with the combination of myth, landscape and eco-feminism that took her earlier work If Women Rose Rooted to cult status, Hagitude reclaims the mid years as a liberating, alchemical moment - from which to shift into your chosen, authentic and fulfilling future. Drawing inspiration from mythic figures and archetypes ranging from the Wise Woman and the Creatrix to the Henwife and the Trickster, as well as modern mentors, Sharon Blackie radically rewrites the future for women in their mid and elder years.

Review quote

'Hagitude has the power to change lives. By sharing her personal story alongside potent female figures from myth and history, Sharon Blackie offers us a rich and exciting vision of how we can grow into a more connected and creative second half of life. Full of fierce energy, this is a book that acts like a ration of courage, of purpose.' - Tanya Shadrick, author of The Cure For Sleep

'Like all Blackie's works it is erudite, wise, passionate and empowering - a feast and a joy of a book.' - Sophie Anderson, author of The House On Chicken Legs
