In the face of the cultural myth that women fade away as they age, this book offers an historical look at women's potential to transform the third phase of their lives into one of wholeness and personal integration. This Jungian perspective on the mature woman looks to Greek, Egyptian, and Asian mythology for powerful archetypes of women in the third stage of life. The mythic origins of goddesses such as Metis, Sophia, Hecate, and Hestia are explored in order to illustrate how their intellectual, mystical, spiritual, intuitive, or meditative attributes can help women to forge more meaningful lives.  Después de los cincuenta años, la mujer entra a la tercera etapa de su vida—la que normalmente no es respetada por la cultura popular. En contra del mito cultural que la mujer se apaga con maduración, este libro propone que las mujeres tienen la capacidad de trasformar la tercera etapa de sus vidas en una de unidad e integración personal. Esta perspectiva de la mujer usa los mitos de Grecia, Egipto y Asia como los arquetipos de mujeres maduras. Los orígenes de las diosas Metis, Sophia, Hecate y Hestia son discutidos para ilustrar como sus características intelectuales, místicas, espirituales, intuitivas o meditativas pueden ayudar a las mujeres a crear sus propias vidas significantes.
