crone ~ wise woman ~ elder

At the time of menopause, the pause of the flow of the menses, the Sacred Blood of Wisdom is finally retained inside the body and the woman herself can partake of its Wisdom. At this time, in older societies, she becomes known as crone or hag, words whose original meaning is 'wise one', revered elder of the circle.

We have lost our respect for the wisdom and understanding of age. yOni would like to contribute to re-establishing a reverence and appreciation for the elders in our society and to learn from these wise ones.
