More Description

A woman's guide to creating an authentic image in support of the true self
-- An insightful blend of women's mythology, an analysis of the beauty and fashion industry, and a guide to the mid-life journey
-- Offers practical exercises that enable women to avoid the pitfalls in mid-life that hamper further growth and discover the gifts conscious aging can bring

Despite Jung's conviction that life's second half is the time of greatest growth and individuation, women in Western society all too often view mid-life as the beginning of the end. Author Karen Kaigler-Walker maintains that this is tragic because when women equate self-worth with the socially dictated standards of attractiveness and youthful beauty, they run the risk of failing to find their true selves.

In Positive Aging, Kaigler-Walker explores and illuminates the quest women must take to free themselves from this cultural trap. Using myths, fairy tales, and a series of practical exercises, she peels back the layers of misunderstanding that distort the true nature of female beauty. Identifying the problem as essentially one of the spirit, she guides women through the myriad erroneous assumptions and preconceptions about the primal role of female beauty and aging.

However, understanding the traps women can fall into because of the images imposed by social standards (including the fashion industry) is not enough. Women must heal the wounds caused by such standards and learn to make choices about their appearance -- choices made from the heart that reflect their wisdom and inherent beauty.
