Tracey Ormerod will lead us in a discussion of Hagitude: Reimagining the Second Half of Life by Sharon Blackie. "Deftly interweaving myth, psychology and memoir, Sharon Blackie argues that menopause ushers in a rich and vibrant new phase of life, and explores the many different ways in which women can flourish during what is so often portrayed as a time of decline. Hagitude unearths the stories of the little-known but powerful elder women in European myth and folklore, inspiring readers to imagine that the last decades of our lives might be the most dynamic of all. This moving and uplifting book will inspire a new generation of female elders: women who have reclaimed their Inner Hag, matured into their own unique brand of hagitude and who are ready to pass down their deep feminine wisdom for the benefit of the wider Earth community." (from Please join us for this important discussion, even if you don't get a chance to read the book. NOTE: Hagitude is available now on Audible read by the author. It will be released in the US on October 11, and can be purchased now from the UK at Book Depository. Contact for more information.

Bio from Tracey Ormerod:  Greetings to the WiseWoman Forum! I'm grateful to have recently found this group, after discovering the online webinars and workshops of Washington's Jung Society during the pandemic. I'm a Canadian writer and teacher with degrees in literature, education, and creative and critical writing. My current novel-in-progress explores such things as active imagination, dreams, synchronicity and numinous experience in the lives of three women finding their way to their own "hagitude" so I'm excited to facilitate our upcoming discussion of Sharon Blackie's book. I look forward to seeing you on October 30th!
