An Interview With My Good Friend and Colleague, Dr. Christiane Northrup About Her New Book, Goddesses Never Age

FL: What prompted you to write Goddesses Never Age?

CN: Like my earlier books, Women’s Bodies Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause, I wrote Goddesses Never Age after a fairly long period of introspection, action, and research. The material for Goddesses Never Age was born out of the ashes of my divorce at midlife, and my subsequent desire to reinvent myself. At the time I was confronted with the cultural belief that my best years were behind me, and that women over the age of 50 aren’t as desirable or attractive. I realize this all sounds melodramatic, but I was concerned that I would never find love, that I would be alone forever.

The Healing Gifts of Sound

Whether we are conscious of it or not, sound surrounds us virtually every moment of the day. There are good sounds – ones that soothe, calm, heal, energize or simply make us smile – and those which have the opposite effect, stressing both body and mind – think sirens, jackhammers, lawnmowers and so on. With its power to create both positive and negative responses throughout the body, it’s important to be conscious of the types of sound we’re exposing ourselves to every day.
