Overview
Intelligent, thought-provoking and delightfully candid, Towards a Soulful Sexuality: new perspectives of sex, age & menopause for women 35 to 60 plus by Adele Gruber separates fact from fiction in regards to a woman’s sexuality after menopause. With startling insights and meticulous documentation, this bold proposal proves to be a fascinating and celebratory examination of what it should mean to be an older woman in the twenty-first century. A truly revolutionary book that brilliantly distils history, anatomy, sexology, psychology, and even quantum physics into remarkable and powerful suggestions to prompt adult women to re-examine the nature of sex, love and spirituality. Comprised of a manifesto, a healing workbook, and a self-assessment. Author Adele Gruber shares a unique perspective of the menopausal experience and offers a radically different approach to ageing gracefully as a soulful, spiritual Woman. She invites you to explore your soul and your sexuality by recognizing their very essence as primordial and sacred. If you want to be sexual forever—spiritually, conscious, and filled with joy until the very end—read this book.
Description
This book is called Towards a Soulful Sexuality because it is an initial step in the direction of a destination towards which I believe we should journey. This is a renewed consciousness of a feminine sexual holiness firmly grounded in our bodies and our psyches that should apply throughout a women’s life, even, and most especially, in the post-menopausal years. The first steps must be to know why you should take the journey at all. For this I offer my Manifesto that informs and explains the cultural, historical background to our deep ambivalences around these matters. It attempts to separate fact from fiction regarding the nature of sex, love and spirituality, women’s sexual anatomy and the concept (and history) of menopause & aging. This book represents my sincere attempt to work towards a soulful sexuality. To start with, we are required to review, redefine and re-imagine our core beliefs and feelings around these subjects. The Manifesto incorporates three condensed histories full of intriguing facts: past perceptions of menopause and stereotypes of aging women; the history of female sexual anatomy, modern Western sexology and Eastern esoteric secrets; and overviews the essential nature of sex, from the physical to the metaphysical, to challenge your core beliefs about body, mind, spirit – and sex. I then encourage you to re-examine your own sexuality and be prepared to heal your deepest psychic wounds. In this respect I offer a short Self-Assessment Questionnaire so that you can review your sexual self to determine how ‘clear’ you may be on sexual issues? The Healing Workbook “Working with my Sexuality” is a personal program of reflections, memories, exercises and meditations that will enable you to better understand your own personal patterns and history around the issues raised in the Manifesto. Having read the Manifesto and completed the Healing Workbook, you can say at best, that you are en route to or on the way towards to a more soulful sexuality. There is much more to read, personal issues to heal, techniques to learn, meditations to practice and awareness to raise, wisdoms to internalize. It is still a field being uncovered by psychologists, spiritual teachers, body practitioners, sexologists and others. I hope you enjoy your journey towards… Intelligent, thought-provoking and delightfully candid, Towards a Soulful Sexuality: new perspectives of sex, age & menopause for women 35 to 60 plus by Adele Gruber separates fact from fiction in regards to a woman’s sexuality after menopause.
