Overview

Medieval mystics have much wisdom to offer contemporary middle-aged women grappling with empty nests, evolving careers and relationships, spiritual growth, and physical issues. Mechthild, for example, began her writing career at the age of fifty. And Julian, referring to Christ as “our kind mother, our gracious mother,” has a vision of Christ allowing us to make mistakes, a helpful image for women mothering nearly adult children.

Each chapter focuses on a topic of interest to modern middle-aged women. Useful for individuals and groups.
