Psychologist/biologist Joan Borysenko illuminates the gifts of being female and celebrates the power of the feminine life-cycle, a brand new field of study. She shows us, through new research, the path to realizing our unique female gifts, and how to utilize them for a life of extraordinary power. "We're fed a bill of goods about menopause," Borysenko says. She views menopause as "a kind of second puberty, where your nervous system is being rewired for wisdom." Borysenko's positive approach to being a female will give you new insights on raising children, co-dependency, body image and sexuality, and coping with the "empty-nest" syndrome. Great material for men too! (hosted by Justine Willis Toms & Michael Toms)
