The feminine life cycle. Becoming a woman: from Adam's rib to Eve's chromosomes. Ages 0-7: early childhood: from empathy to interdependence. Ages 7-14: Middle childhood: the logic of the hearth. Ages 14-21: adolescence: snow white falls asleep, but awakens to herself. Ages 21-28: A home of one's own: the psychobiology of mating and motherhood. Ages 28-35: the age 30 transition: new realities, new plans. Age 35-42: healing and balance: spinning straw into gold. Ages 42-49: the midlife metamorphosis: authenticity, power, and the emergence of the guardian. Ages 49-56: from herbs to HRT: a mindful approach to menopause. Ages 56-63: the heart of a woman: feminine power and social action. Ages 63-70: wisdom's daughters: creating a new integral culture. Ages 70-77: the gifts of changes: resiliency, loss, and growth. Ages 77-84 and beyond: recapitulating our lives: generativity, retrospection, and trascendence.
