Program Description

What wisdom do you have that you can pass on? Have the difficult times in your life left you bitter, seeking someone to blame? Or have they left you juicy with self-awareness, purpose, and humor? Have you become a crone? Join author and Jungian analyst Jean Shinoda Bolen as she explores the enormous potential for wisdom in the last third of your life. “Any person who has made a deep connection to nurturing or sustaining others, any person who has been through vulnerability and suffering and has learned some wisdom from it,” she explains, can embrace their later years with a depth of understanding that is of value to us all. (Hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
