Mythology recomendations....

This is going to be a little vague and I apologize. There isn't a specific time or cultural references mostly because I'm looking for archetypes rather than specifics.

I've been googling age, aging, mythology, initiations, and transformation. I've found a lot if I wanted to write about a were' of some sort, but nothing fits.

I'm sending a hero out into the woods, he will follow and animal and meet a crone and be changed by these things, but he's a grown man, in his forth decade, not a boy.

Does anybody know of any folk tales about older men changing their lives?
