Product Description


Hart (The Unknown She) explores how women’s bodies are uniquely spiritual vehicles. Drawing on spiritual teachers, visionaries, and healers from diverse traditions, she establishes nine spiritual abilities that are integrated into women’s bodies and energy systems: longing, appreciating beauty, synchronizing with the Earth, receiving, nourishing, purifying, recognizing life’s sacredness, knowing all life as community, and working with creative space. She argues that these “powers” lie hidden in most women, and stresses the need for women to become conscious of their powers so they can regenerate their communities. As in her previous book, Hart relies heavily on women’s mystical experiences and dreams. She grounds her work in the everyday realities of women, and is at her best when expounding on the spiritual nature of menstruating and breastfeeding. However, the book is also profoundly esoteric. Hart writes that “the Grandmothers,” a group of women who claim to serve the Divine Mother, were “willing to contribute to [her] book” and she quotes them. The arcane nature of the book won’t appeal to everyone, but students of mysticism and women seeking a more embodied spiritual practice will likely treasure it. Publishers Weekly 11/03/2013

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing. just read it! 8 April 2014
this is the book modern spiritual women have been waiting for. I couldn't put it down, yet kept wanting to revisit the points made before moving on to the next chapter. this book has so much to say to women who wish to simply live their spirituality , not apart from their bodies, the world or their lives....simply as an integral part of living. it is about walking your talk just by feeling the divine feminine in all life.
the author is authorative and simply wise. yet she puts over her points with such a degree of 'best friend-ness' that you begin to feel her as well as read her. there is so much in this book and I want it for my sister, my daughters and nieces.
the message of the book is about being able to live spiritually as women, not in a patriarchal way of mind thought disengaged from our bodies, but rather as women with bodies, families, homes and careers. I loved the fact that it allows homely things to be inherently spiritual such as crafts, food preparation, child rearing and simple gatherings of women. this is quite a step away from a lot of books just now which ask us to lift away from our bodies and disengage from the mundane so we can be spiritual. well, as women we have to see the mundane as spiritual as we cannot easily escape from it to go 'find ourselves' in a cave somewhere while our children need our attention or our elderly need our support. life is Spirit and the author explains this in many ways from her appreciation of women's gatherings to moon flow ceremonies to creative art and beauty to simply making a house a home.
there is so much more I could say. this book is a breath of fresh air .it helps us see how to rebalance out of sync energies without unbalancing ourselves. it shows a path forward to be an authentic spiritual woman with no fear also no aspirations to be male.
simply a wonderful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for women of all ages 31 July 2013
By lauri amidon - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Body of Wisdom: Women's Spiritual Power and How it Serves by Hilary Hart is a must read for all women of all ages. Ms. Hart's material is original. When I read it, my entire being knew it's truth about the wisdom inherent in women's bodies. I have already given this book as gifts to my daughters and other women because of the profound message Ms. Hart delivers with such eloquence, grace and power.

Women have a special and important role to play on this planet not only for our children but for our men, our communities and for the Earth. The time is ripe for women to step into their necessary role to bring health, balance and harmony to this very out-of-balance world. Ms Hart presents the theme of empowerment for women in a most beautiful way........not to threaten men.......or degrade men..........but to raise women to their natural and needed roles on this Earth.

Ms Harts writing is truly exquisite and inspiring.
