Empowerment of the Crone

Course Start Date 27/28 November 2021

Dreaming of Journeying into Her depths, by Wendy Andrew

With Kathy Jones
Crone Priestess of Avalon

Exploring the Rich Wisdom of the Crone as Goddess and within ourselves as Crones

Within our societies the Crone as Woman, as Archetype and as Divinity is almost completely ignored. As woman the Crone is invisible, grey-haired, wrinkled and old, easily dismissed. Yet Cronehood is women’s time of greatest Wisdom in Life, for we have lived through time. We have loved and lost. We have succeeded and failed. We have descended into the depths and risen to the heights. We have grown as human beings. We have experienced life in all its variety and wonder and we have perspective.

Cronehood is a consequence of physical aging and also a state of consciousness which encompasses the experience of having lived long on the earth. Crones hold many personal and collective memories and a wealth of wisdom gleaned from living life. We have a perspective on the meaning of emotions and thoughts, on the passage of time and the cycles of life, including birth, growth, development, blossoming, fruitfulness, maturity, harvest, aging and death. This wisdom is often unspoken and unshared.

Over these five weekends we will explore the true Nature of the Crone, the Grand Mother, She who is the fourth face of Goddess in the cycle of Maiden, Lover, Mother and Crone, She who leads us into death. We will consider the experience of becoming Crones in our lives. We shall share our knowledge and wisdom, seeking and finding the Empowerment of the Crone.

For this course being a Crone is defined by years lived on the Earth in physical form, by longer life experience. Participants need to be 60 years old or older. Although Cronehood is often said to arrive with menopause, menopause can also occur earlier in life through illness or accident, so menopause is not the defining cause of Cronehood.
