The Waning Moon Years: Age Disrupting:

The Waning Moon Years: Age Disrupting:

Freeing ourselves from being defined & controlled by the sum of our uterus (uteri) – if they bleed, breed, or if we even have one.

Our Crone Deep Dive welcomes all genders & ages including, but not limited to: Crones and Crone Adjacents, Wannabes & Curious. Let’s demystify the waning years of our lives together – for our ancestors & future generations – please join-in the conversation!

Crone of Arc, aka: Melissa Barron & Syn, identifies as non-binary – preferred pronouns: she/her. She’s an artist, environmentalist, fashionista, feminist, mother, grandmother, business woman, cancer survivor AND an age disrupter/age positive advocate hoping to help redefine modern “eldering” – while laughing about seniority too! In most western cultures, aging is not aspirational given our hardcoded fear of being labeled “OLD” & useless once we pass beyond our procreation years. Publicly aging with a sense of humor is positively rebellious. Maturing with joy & individuality is part of reframing older women beyond their narrow perceptions as dry, wise, maternal, free labor, & not sexy! “Age-old” stereo-types and language reinforce ageism. Further, the lack of diverse representation of Crones in all forms of media, fortify existing age biases.

Let’s reframe our cultural conditioning where we free ourselves from being defined & controlled by the sum of our uterus (uteri) – if they bleed, breed, or if we even have one. Where bleeding isn’t the be-all and end-all & does not solely define womanity. Where Menopause becomes revered versus feared. Where dreaded HOT FLASHES are welcomed & their energy harnessed. Life stages never last forever so it’s important to fully surrender to the waves of change as they come, acknowledge them fully, and see where they take us….perhaps where we are meant to venture. And create RADICAL RITUALS throughout our waxing & waning eras in order to celebrate them!
