Wisdom Woman, Elderwoman, Crone
Custodian Of Female Power
Part Two

Written & Illustrated By Roslyne Sophia Breillat

For she has walked this Earth for many thousands of years, gathering her wild and verdant herbs, preparing her nurturing plant medicines, offering the precious depths of her wisdom and the unique treasures of her many life experiences as a prayer to the Earth, as a prayer to all, as an honoured and honourable gift to communities, cultures, villages, tribes.

And in this crazily seductive and distracting world of cyberspace, and cords and adaptors and cables and screens and pollution and automation and technology and noise, and twenty four hour everything and digital this and that, she is the only one who can weave the threads between female womb cycles. For she is the one who links womb and heart to the Earth. She is the one who relates delightful stories of her childhood and the childhoods of those who came before her mother’s mother’s mother. She is the one who tells the children of bullock drays carving roads through the rainforest, and old sandstone coach houses in gracious gardens. Her tales of glowing gas lights on wooden poles in the streets, of big chugging steam engines, of delicate crocheted shawls and cherished sepia photographs, are becoming lost in a synthetic world of plastic that is covering her beloved Earth. She is the one who can weave the fine and sacred threads of the tapestry of female generations, who can offer ancient natural healing skills from long ago. She is the true custodian and counsellor of morality, of law, of integrity, of menstruation, of sexuality, of pregnancy, of midwifery and birthing, of mothering, of menopause, of death and dying.

She is the only woman of true power. For she is the only one who has lived through the lunar cycles of Maiden, Mother and Crone, of Creator, Destroyer and Preserver, of menstruation and mothering and menopause. She is the true Queen, She, the Crone, she of the Crown. She is the true ancient tribal Matriarch, the true wise priestess, the true dakini, the true guardian and keeper of mythology, of mystery, of seasonal honourings, of sacred writings, of prophecy, of alchemy, of magic. And yet, she who once was so revered and cherished upon this bountiful Earth, has no integral place of truth and wisdom within this male-dominated society. For this Moon Mother, this Mother of All, this Mother Night, this Goddess of the Black Night, this Heart Mother Crone, is not welcome in the glaring solar light of the patriarchal world.

She, this Elderwoman, this Crone, is an embodiment of wisdom, mystery, purpose, of sage advice and counseling that arises from the ancient depths of her immortal wombheart. In matriarchal societies the Crone is the one who wisely educates the younger generations, and sadly, in our patriarchal society, this task has been taken over by television, movies and social media, that do not truly educate the younger generations at all, but teach them that everything is linear and not cyclic, that youth rules society, and that the deep feminine wisdom of the Elderwoman is no longer needed upon this Earth. And in our patriarchal civilisation, the wisdom and beauty of the Crone has become hidden, suppressed, useless, unseen.

And as more bombs are dropped, more ancient forests become arid desert wastelands, more creatures become extinct, more innocent refugees are punished and rejected, more celebrities teach young women how to starve their beautiful bodies, more dishonest politicians are elected and more oceans acidify, the natural place of the beautiful Elderwoman and Crone, she who holds her wise blood inside, she who offers wisdom and peace, is so dearly needed upon this Earth.

Sophia offers two courses at the Wise Woman University:

~ Being Woman ~ (detailed description of Being Woman online course)

This six week online course provides a sacred and nurturing space where woman can learn to surrender more deeply to the natural receptivity of the female psyche. "...so blessed to have had gentle words of encouragement and support from you through the "Being Woman" course at W.W.U.... You have inspired me to continue my quest... Thanks so much!"

~ Dawning of Wisdom ~ (detailed description of Dawning of Wisdom online course)

Throughout this series of lessons she will learn to trust the innate flow of her intuitive nature and to listen more intimately to the wellspring of her inner source. And we will explore together how to live more fully as the embodiment of the feminine essence within the structures of a masculine civilisation.

"I LOVE your class, it is beautiful and thought provoking and well done... Thank you Sophia for your role as wisdom keeper, confidante and mentor."
