‘In the oldest known cosmology of my native lands, it wasn’t a sky-bound old man with a beard who made and shaped this world. It was an old woman. A giant old woman, who has been with us down all the long ages, since the beginning of time.’

Hagitude explores how post-menopausal women have the potential and new-found freedom to emerge and claim a fulfilling, purposeful third age. Drawing on her work with myth, landscape and psychology Sharon Blackie inspires readers to weave new stories for themselves and to imagine that the elder years may in fact be the most dynamic yet.
