Calling All Crones and Crones to Be

CroneCurriculumThe new 13-session curriculum, Becoming Women of Wisdom: Marking the Passage into the Crone Years, is now in use in a number of UU congregations and women’s groups. Participants are reporting they find the program very exciting and are getting to know themselves and each other at a deeper level than ever before. One participant commented that she was not happy when the group decided to meet on Sunday afternoons, but once the program started she didn’t want to miss any of the circles.

The curriculum is designed for women who are entering or have passed through menopause and would like to mark this passage or deepen their understanding of what it means to be a wise older woman. The program opens the participant to the power, wisdom, and insight of the mature self.

Imagine entering the labyrinth of your psyche, slowly following its turns in and out as you weave yourself toward the deep center of your essential knowing. As you make your way forward, you will remember the past, integrate its lessons and shed its excess baggage, until you come to the present moment of possibility and transformation. There you will claim the beauty and truth that can be yours and begin your walk out of the labyrinth integrating your new found knowledge and the thirteen guiding principles of a crone as you retrace your steps. Before you reemerge into the world, you will celebrate your new state and assume the crown and mantle of the crone. As a mature woman of action and compassion, you will claim your power as a woman of wisdom.
