Item description for Jubilee Time: Celebrating Women, Spirit, And The Advent Of Age by Maria Harris...
Overview Drawing on such writers as May Sarton, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, and M.F.K. Fisher, the author celebrates the freedom, spirituality, and vitality of older women, helping them form a direction for the rest of life
Publishers Description In keeping with the bestselling "When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple, " and Gail Sheehy's "New Passages, Jubilee Time" celebrates the freedom, opportunities, and power of older women, who are too often maligned in our youth-obsessed culture. Based on the Jubilee passage in Leviticus--"You shall hallow the fiftieth year. It shall be a Jubilee for you"--this practical and philosophical book helps women assess what values and beliefs they want to carry forward into the second half of life.
A Jubilarian herself, Harris draws on her own experience and cites others--including May Sarton, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, M.F.K. Fisher, Florida Scott-Maxwell, Doris Grumbach, as well as more than one hundred "ordinary" women--to reflect the variety and vitality of this unheralded community. In lyrical prose punctuated by exercises and meditations, she invites readers to rest and reflect, stop and take stock, celebrate and cultivate the rich rewards of a mature spirituality.

Jubilee Time speaks to me where I am right now, and welcomes me to continue into the rest of my life with joy, creativity and peaceful wisdom. Engaging this second half of my life is the adventure I have been waiting for, and this book makes those connections with myself and community tangible. Best investment for my future ever made.
Perfect gift for women celebrating jubilee! Apr 5, 1999
"....For it is a jubilee; it shall be holy unto you." The Book of Leviticus. And so begins this inspiring book celebrating women entering jubilee. Jubilee is certainly a more uplifting word than cronehood! Each chapter of this book ends with an exercise relating to the theme of the chapter. Great though-provoking exercises for the individual; also very appropriate to use with support groups; counseling; classes, etc. I was given this book for my jubilee and is now the gift I pass on to all my friends to celebrate their jubilee.
