Structured with six steps of healing - ranging from taking time to do nothing at all through a wide variety of alternative healing modalities to the most aggressive of modern medical techniques, Susun S. Weed's "New Menopausal Years: The Wise Woman Way," offers information, insight and wisdom to women who are seeking their own path through the journey of menopause.
I found the level of educational material offered in this book to be extraordinary. I was particularly interested in the wealth of options for engaging my own energy, using healthy foods, physical activities, and herbal remedies. Additionally, I found the approach to the benefits offered by modern medicine to be a wise one - providing information on both the positive and life saving benefits of modern technology as well as the dangers of using invasive therapies where they are not beneficial.
Perhaps what I found most appealing about "New Menopausal Years" was the way in which this time of change is honored, as "Grandmother Growth" seemed to be whispering in my ear the messages of ancient wisdom - messages all too often lost in our culture that only seems to value what is "new and improved".
Ms. Weed offers an online newsletter through her website and I have found it to be a valuable adjunct to this book, with regularly updated content and information on workshops and other events that may be of interest to readers.
Her gentle treatment of my psyche and body, give me the feeling of power and self understanding.
Every woman should keep a copy on the nightstand. Mine is dog-eared.
How could this be happening to me? I'm not old. I'm not ready to get facial hair, brittle bones, and happily retire with my cats.
It was then that I remembered Susun and her Wise Woman series of books. I have read several of her books and absolutely adored them. Susun has a way of making sense of disease, as a normal part of our spiritual and psychological growth.
Without a doubt New Menopausal Years has armed me with information and a whole new perspective. My life doesn't have to include hormone injections, crazy mood swings, or adverse signs of aging. I now see this new phase of my life as an opportunity to take better care of myself and focus on the things I want to do with my life.
