From the Back Cover

Joyce Rupp shares her own midlife journey - its ups and downs - with such honesty and insight that you will surely identify with and benefit from the discoveries she has made along the way. Among them we can find wisdom in the wounds we've carried from birth onward, and these wounds can heal; past regrets must be let go lest they cling to us and drain our energy for life; the loving part of us can always out-wrestle the hating part; surprises of beauty and talent in us wait to be discovered and shared; some of what we thought to be unbreakable truth is now shattered pottery and unmendable; and our struggle to name God and to find a spirituality that enlivens and enriches our existence is less complex than we first thought.

About the Author

Joyce Rupp is well known for her work as a writer, spiritual midwife, international retreat leader, and conference speaker. She is the author of numerous bestselling books, including Open the Door and Fragments of Your Ancient Name.

This is Joyce Rupp at her best. The wisdom of living a heart-centered life is the fruit of this book. Any woman or man looking for a guide to lead them through the middle years "naming" the losses, bringing forth the images which help all of us to find our way with dignity, grace, and ah yes! humor, will treasure this book and pass it on to their closest friends. Highly recommended.

Joyce helps us face the dark corners of our hearts -- the places where we would rather not go. But, in doing so, she brings us into a light more bright than we ever thought possible. Using her suggested guided visualizations and journaling suggestions makes the experience more powerful, too. The visualizations can even be done by yourself. Don't rush through this book. Take your time and really enter the cave. I found Jesus waiting there for me.

My faith-sharing/prayer group used this in our weekly meetings.Our group ranges from 53 to 73, so we were all in different stanges ofour mid-life. Joyce's book seemed very "dark" and only one person could actually relate well to the contents. However, I felt it prompted more sharing within the group than other books we've used. The idea for group meetings were excellent. I also purchased the audio tape to go with this book which was excellent (5 stars). Great mediations and the chants are a great way to begin your reading or the evening's activity.

I want to thank you for sending the missing books and CD! I was surprised when they arrived when you indicated they would! We met this morning as a group and I had to say that I did not have the books that I had ordered in mid-April. Once again Amazon came through! Thanks!

It is as if this book was written about my spiritual journey! It has provided insights into the path that many people in mid-life experience. Great book!

The folks that praise the book are all not Catholic in it's front insert. In fact most are secular or something other then any christian group.

I then skimmed though it and found all this new age and middle-eastern promotion. She talks a lot about strange mythic creatures and gods. Very disappointing. The index in the back has only one catholic book that she takes information from "julian of norwich". You can just get her book instead of this one. Then she has listed at least 20 or so others like the inner rainbow, the wizard's gate, descent to the goddess, the gnostic book of hours, goddess in every woman,celebrate mid-life: jungian archetypes...,the divine feminine from black goddess...king, warrior, magician, lover...,the crone that are clearly not catholic and certainly not christ centered.
Toss it.
