"Red Moon Passage does not come from one particular culture. In renaming menopause for myself, I tried to find words that would describe both our growing out of the blood cycles and childbearing years, our indelible physical connection to the feminine, and the fact that as menopause is completed, we enter into a new realm of being. In every way, we are on a voyage to a new land."
--Bonnie J. Horrigan, from the Introduction to Red Moon Passage
In the spirit of The Feminine Face of God, Coming Into Our Fullness, and When I Am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple, this new perspective on women and spiritual power, Red Moon Passage, celebrates menopause as an archetypal journey of transformation. Written with notable grace, it contains a personal story of sorrow and triumph as well as enlightening conversations with eight extraordinary women from different backgrounds and traditions: Jeanne Achterberg, Paula Gunn Allen, Angeles Arrien, Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Kachinas Kutenai, Carol S. Pearson, Jamie Sams, and Barbara G. Walker. These women attest to the magical, life-affirming, creative and re-generative potential of menopause that is within every woman.
Red Moon Passage provides uplifting, thought-provoking insights about menopause as a spiritual journey to a new way of being. It shows that the Red Moon Passage is not a transition to an end stage of life, but is itself a magnificent and powerful new phase.
