A Woman's Book of Life

A Woman's Book of Life

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.

    This book was way less hippie than I anticipated when I first put it on my queue many years ago. She uses the small, but compelling existing research to expand on existing gender theories and posit so...

    Every woman should read this book from the teenager to the very old woman. It is magnificent and so very uplifting for the reader. Men should read it also, if they want to get to understand women....

    I bought this book when it was first published and was so impressed that a woman actually had written a book for women! At the time so many "female" books I found were about women as good wives and ho...

    Takes you through the seven-year stages in a woman's life from 0-84 and beyond. It is a textbook style of writing which can be dry, but it was interesting reading the "Ages 49-56: A Mindful Approach t...
