What is the Ancient Wisdom of Women?

In ancient times women were honoured and revered as wise elders when they reached menopause.

I want us to take back that role.

Surely the modern world needs more of women’s wisdom today than ever before.

I’m Judith Stafford and I am passionate about helping women in the second half of life.

Why me, how can I help? I am going through the same things as you. I have been there and done it. I don’t have all the answers – how could I? But I do have some of them and I want to share them with you.

What is it all about?

At the Ancient Wisdom or Women, I want to help you find your authentic self by tapping into your inner wisdom.

Make this phase of your life the best ever with my in-depth courses and programmes, blog posts, videos, podcasts, and mini courses. I will explore what it means to be a woman in mid-life through myth, story and by embracing ourselves and our world.
