Focusing on Transformative Powers of Menopause and Changing the Mindset of Those Feeling Overwhelmed

Author Jennifer Boire uses a light touch and gentle humour providing her brand of women's wisdom on matters such as Where Did My Libido Go? Tango at Mid-Life, Feeling Like You're Going Crazy, Menopause is Not a Disease, and How to Cultivate Your Own

This interactive workbook for women at mid-life is a must read for women in their forties to learn the blessings and challenges of menopause. It treats menopause as an awakening, a transformation on a woman's journey with the focus on self-care through journal prompts, as well as exercises to calm and center.
Boire is passionate about the subject and says "The Tao of Turning Fifty grew out of research done for my blog, and interviews with women approaching or already past menopause. In my own experience, it felt momentous, like a psychic shift, or heroine's quest, so much more than just hot flashes and low libido. I want every woman in her forties to know what is coming, to educate herself, to honour and prepare for this important rite of passage and mid-life transition that is menopause."
Kirkus Reviews called the book "a pragmatic guide doubling as a workbook that examines how to find inner balance during a woman's tumultuous midlife change. Boire masterfully encourages introspection and engagement in her book, which brings Eastern philosophy and Western lifestyles together to deliver what every woman in her forties needs to know." They summed up their review referring to it as "an interactive workbook for women wanting to find harmony and understand the inevitability of life's physiological changes."
Boire begins a five day virtual book blog tour on Monday, March 10th ending Friday, March 14th, 2014 organized by Book Marketing Services,
