The menstrual cycle is a vital and vitalizing system in the female body and yet our understanding of and respect for this process is both limited and distorted. Few women really know about the physiology of their cycle. They are encouraged to ignore it and cope with menstruation as best they can without missing a beat, rather than seeing the cycle as an integral part of their health and wellbeing and, even more excitingly, as a potential guide to emotional and spiritual literacy.
Wild Power is a book about feminine power-the power of the menstrual cycle. An embodied consciousness that opens a woman to a unique force that can heal, restore love, guide her home to herself, and support the manifestation of her dreams, ambitions, and life calling.
This book reveals the inner architecture of a woman and the path to power that is encoded in her body, which takes her on an initiatory journey from menarche to menopause. This unique force tutors us in the sacred tasks of each phase of this journey, the perils and the pitfalls, as we grow into our authority and eldership as creators and leaders in the world.
In this book, the authors explore the three maps of the menstrual cycle that guide women through their inner landscape to meet themselves, get to know their own nature and develop the psychological muscle to channel the creative and spiritual forces within them.
Written in an engaging style, with humor, tenderness, and practicality, and packed with women's stories and quotes throughout, Wild Power is an invitation to a new consciousness born out of an awareness of and fidelity to the menstrual cycle, restoring women to wholeness and reinstating the full majesty and grace of the Feminine.
