Product Description

From the Author

For women who desire a conscious style of femininity
This collection of star-studded women authors -- Marion Woodman, Jean Bolen, Riane Eisler, Linda Leonard, Deena Metzger, Merlin Stone, and more -- arose out of my longing to be authentically feminine, to experience myself fully as a woman, and yet to be a strong, independent individual with my own power and authority. Like many women, I found that these two qualities seemed oppositional; i felt as if my natural strengths and feminist beliefs contradicted an inner sense of femininity and a desire to explore a softer, gentler way to be a women. Together I call them conscious femininity, and that's the theme of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN IMPORTANT BOOK FOR OUR TIME 3 Mar 2007
By Star Child - Published on Amazon.com
This book taught me a lot about the "feminine" and how it has been repressed for centuries. The thing that makes it so mind opening is that the impact of repressing the feminine affects us all, male and female. Each individual author has their unique stance on the subject and is an accomplished author in their own right. I felt empowered by reading this book and I recommend it highly. I am surprised it is not in print because it is so amazing and it has SO much to teach us. In fact it was like having a mini psychology session and I felt I had a healing by reading it.

Lots of different essays - mostly Jungian analysts (always my favorite) - good insights about the feminine. Follows human development in sections.
5.0 out of 5 stars So Many Angles, So Little Time 9 July 2013
By M. A. Tally - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am still reading the essays, yet the insight I have gained thusfar is invaluable. I am changing and growing in my awareness of my feminine consciousness, and this book gives me a joy to know of the thoughts, dreams, experiences and the hurts, frustrations and disappointments I have experienced because of gender bias, a friend, healing a mother-daughter relationship, and even healing a father-daughter relationship, are not solely belonging to me, but are relatively commonplace. Just the other night I dreamt of a recurring male figure cleaning out his items from the closet of my childhood home. I am certain a new feminine consciousness is emerging from within, and I am grateful to the authors, editor, and women in this book for being a catalyst in my development.
