Michaela cuts through the clutter of other personal development books to provide an insightful and experience based manual for living in a woman's body. Her clarity and distinctions obviously come from decades of real practice. Recent hardships (house burning down, losing everything) really put her body and mind to the test and shows proof that practice does pay off in the real world. Life changing teacher with a life changing book.
I have seen a lot of self help books and self-published books in this field, which are basically a lot of waffle. This book is what other writers aspire to be and convey. It is extremely well written, intelligent, accessible and practical. It communicates what a number of practitioners in this field cannot convey - a systemic focus on embodiment and body wisdom and practices which help you find your way. I love how clear the author's voice is, and that she communicates that her approach is neither time consuming or expensive. My overall feeling in response to her words and wisdom in this book is relief, a feeling of home, a relaxation at the intellectual, spiritual and emotional integrity of her work. This is the book you have been trying to find.
This book is a modern classic. The teachings are deep, rich and insightful and will give you plenty of a-ha moments! If you want to become connected into your body, to feel pleasure, and to understand yourself as a woman in the world- this book is for you!
