Can You Step into Your Power and Birth a New You at Midlife?
YES! Midlife, and the major events that encompass the ages of 35-65, can be devastating or powerful for women. But we can choose to be awakened at this powerful time of life. This memoir is the story of Donna Daniell’s healing journey through the five stages of the midlife voyage-Lost at Sea; Finding a Mooring; Deep Diving; Rebirthing; and the New You-to find self-love, resilience, and feminine wisdom. It is also a roadmap for other women on the midlife journey, charting a course that transmutes challenges into inner rebirth and stepping into the power of the Wisewoman.
FIND YOUR OWN INNER STRENGTH – TAKE THE VOYAGE TO TRANSFORMATION!
For women, the years between the ages of 39 to 65 are often filled with uncertainty. It’s a time when the children may have reached adulthood, leaving mothers with an empty nest. It’s also a time when relationships may fail, causing wives to re-evaluate their roles. All of these scenarios contribute to a lack of direction, forcing women to recalibrate and chart a new course.
Author Donna Roe Daniell shares her own story in A Midlife Voyage to Transformation. She unpacks her life for the reader through two divorces, one child, and a career and shares how the worst of times can serve as a catalyst for the best times.
Told in a conversational manner, the memoir evokes a number of realistic scenarios. How many women struggle as new mothers, especially when the fathers seem unwilling to be involved as the couple evolves into a family? As a licensed clinical social worker, the author sees great value in therapeutic interventions. By sharing her struggles, she emphasizes solutions to assist other women navigating similar situations.
Ultimately, this is a story that leads women to confront the challenges they face, whether it be marriage, menopause, or the death of a loved one. Daniell’s coaching focuses on the “5-Step Voyage to Transformation,” which helps readers examine their challenges through a self-compassionate lens.
A Midlife Voyage to Transformation serves as an excellent guidebook for women looking for purpose in their lives by helping them to identify their inner strengths and then begin the transformation process.
