A Woman's Book of Life teaches women how to align with the physical changes that occur at every stage of life in order to maximize health and well-being. In the growth of early childhood, hormonal ups and downs, the possibility of childbearing, and growing older are powerful keys to unlocking a woman's potential. Those notorious temperature changes in menopause are not hot flashes, they're power surges, and A Woman's Book of Life traces the compelling biopsychospiritual reality of the move into authentic power at midlife. This is a book for any woman, of any generation. It allows the reader to look back and see the forgotten gifts of childhood, or to look ahead in celebration of what's to come. Whatever her age, no woman will be able to come away from this book without a greater appreciation for who women are, in their bodies, their emotions, their souls. Borysenko offers a rare chance to understand the gifts of being female and to celebrate the power of the feminine life cycle.
Joan Borysenko reveals the biological force behind the psychology and spirituality of the female experience. This pioneering book teaches women how to align with the physical changes that occur at every stage of life--to maximize health and well-being as well as discover the extraordinary power that comes with new levels of growth. By tracing a woman's life from infancy through the hormonal changes of adolescence, the childbearing years, midlife and beyond, she allows us to celebrate the gift of the feminine life cycle--in a book for any woman, of any generation.
"A courageous and thought-provoking examination of a feminine way of growth. this is a book that changes lives."
