What is the Ancient Wisdom of Women?

In ancient times women were honoured and revered as wise elders when they reached the second half of life.

We need 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.

My Story

A journey towards wisdom

I used to dread getting older. I was afraid it was the beginning of the end! But, like you, I have the desire to make myself and the world a better place. To do this I had to make a change in the way I thought about being in the second half of life and my role in society. It was the start of my journey to finding my authentic self and regaining my sense of worth and purpose.
