Item description for Wising Up: Ritual Resources for Women of Faith in Their Journey of Aging by Kathy Black & Heather Elkins...

Wising Up provides rituals and guidance for aging women (mainly 65 and older) to help them make the often difficult transitions wisely and in the context of their faith communities. Instead of focusing exclusively on such time-worn thresholds as menopause, marriage and divorce, and dying, the book includes affirming rituals on coming to terms with: the changes in one's body (losing parts such as breasts or living with cancer) learning to live with and depend upon devices (a walker or hearing aid) giving up a driver's license deciding about one's household contents being orphaned Guides are also offered for how to create one's own rituals. Plus the book contains short stories, hymns, prayers, quotations, works of art, and poetry women can turn to as yet another tool to help them through the aging process.

Wising Up Ritual resources for women of faith in their journey of aging  Aug 13, 2006
At last, a book to make the definite changes in a woman's life effective with a "ritual," and easier to accept. So many begin to need a walker to aid in walking, and are reluntant to have it. I particulary appreciate a "ritual" for that occasion and other changes in a woman's life.
