Item Description...
Overview
Joyce Rupp shares her own midlife journey-its ups and downs-with such honesty and insight that you will surely identify with and benefit from the discoveries she has made along the way. Among them we can find wisdom in the wounds we've carried from birth onward, and these wounds can heal; past regrets must be let go lest they cling to us and drain our energy for life; the loving part of us can always out-wrestle the hating part; surprises of beauty and talent in us wait to be discovered and shared; some of what we thought to be unbreakable truth is now shattered pottery and unmendable; and our struggle to name God and to find a spirituality that enlivens and enriches our existence is less complex than we first thought.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A great help for midlife crisis  Oct 9, 2000
Joyce helps us face the dark corners of our hearts -- the places where we would rather not go. But, in doing so, she brings us into a light more bright than we ever thought possible. Using her suggested guided visualizations and journaling suggestions makes the experience more powerful, too. The visualizations can even be done by yourself. Don't rush through this book. Take your time and really enter the cave. I found Jesus waiting there for me.
 
Dear heart, Come Home  Feb 15, 2000
My faith-sharing/prayer group used this in our weekly meetings.Our group ranges from 53 to 73, so we were all in different stanges ofour mid-life. Joyce's book seemed very "dark" and only one person could actually relate well to the contents. However, I felt it prompted more sharing within the group than other books we've used. The idea for group meetings were excellent. I also purchased the audio tape to go with this book which was excellent (5 stars). Great mediations and the chants are a great way to begin your reading or the evening's activity.
 
Disappointing if you are a faithful Roman Catholic  Aug 17, 1999
This book does not contain the gifts of the Catholic faith, but instead is a new age spiritual treatise of total, unqualified tolerance. What comes to mind is the old phrase "if it feels good, do it".This is exactly what is wrong with society. Too much of doing one's "own thing". Nothing about obedience and belief in what will strenghten us through mid life is contained in the book. Do not read this book if you are looking for the answer to your mid life crisis.One thing about reaching fifty is that you can cut through the mustard and see a hidden agenda under a guise of honesty.This book will not lead one to their home, but farther away into confusion.
 
Honest,courageous, self-disclosing journey through mid-life.  Oct 23, 1997
This is Joyce Rupp at her best. The wisdom of living a heart-centered life is the fruit of this book. Any woman or man looking for a guide to lead them through the middle years "naming" the losses, bringing forth the images which help all of us to find our way with dignity, grace, and ah yes! humor, will treasure this book and pass it on to their closest friends. Highly recommended.
