Celebrating the Wisdom, Beauty, and Voice of Elder Women
Inspired by Paula Martin's new book of poetry, CRONING, women of all ages are invited to join our CRONING CIRCLE at the Esse Center, a beautiful new addition to the Esse Purse Museum, to celebrate and honor women in the third stage of their lives (age 50+) in a sacred space. Paula will open the circle with a guided meditation, and then read from her new book, and elder women will be encouraged to read their own work, tell their own stories, discuss, and share. Elder women may also be honored in other ways, including song, movement, spiritual ceremony, and more. Younger women are welcome and very much encouraged to come and listen, but not to read or teach in any way. Just as traditional cultures understood, this is a time for honoring and revering elders and listening to those who came before.
