Through one incredible woman’s journey from a child bride in a small Zimbabwe village to one of the world’s most recognizable voices in women’s empowerment and education, this manifesto inspires women to pursue their sacred dreams through nine essential lessons brought forth from ancient African wisdom. Before Tererai Trent landed on Oprah’s stage as her “favorite guest of all time,” she was a woman with a forgotten dream. As a young girl in a cattle-herding village in Zimbabwe, she dreamed of receiving an education but instead was married young and by eighteen, without a high school graduation, she was already a mother of three. Tererai encountered a visiting American woman who assured her that anything was possible, reawakening her sacred dream. Tererai planted her dreams deep in the earth and prayed they would grow. They did, and now not only has she earned her PhD but she has also built schools for girls in Zimbabwe, with funding from Oprah. The Awakened Woman: Remembering & Reigniting Our Sacred Dreams is her accessible, intimate, and evocative guide that teaches nine essential lessons to encourage all women to reexamine their dreams and uncover the power hidden within them—power that can recreate our world for the better. Tererai points out that there is a massive, untapped, global resource in women who have, for one reason or another, set aside their wisdom, their skills, and their dreams in order to take care of the personal business of their lives. Not only is this a type of invisible suffering experienced by countless women, this rich resource is a secret weapon for improving our world. Women have the capacity to inspire, to create, to transform—and Tererai’s call to action will awaken hearts, give permission to recapture dreams, and provide the tools to forge a brighter path for all. This is the movement of Sacred Sisters.

Was ist Stille? Wo ist sie? Warum ist sie heute wichtiger denn je? Lange hat Erling Kagge sich mit diesen drei Fragen beschäftigt. Angeregt durch Freunde und Wegbegleiter wie Marina Abramovic, Jon Fosse, Elon Musk, Børge Ousland und Oliver Sacks, ist er in seinem Buch zu dreiunddreißig Antworten gekommen. Entstanden ist ein Wegweiser für den modernen Menschen auf seiner Suche nach Stille, Ruhe, Frieden – überall dort, wo es laut ist. »Die Natur sprach zu mir, indem sie sich als Stille präsentierte. Je stiller es wurde, desto mehr hörte ich ... eine ohrenbetäubende Stille.« Der Weltwanderer Erling Kagge musste weit gehen, um ein Gut zu finden, das in unserer Zeit immer wichtiger wird: Stille. Auf seinen Expeditionen – zum Süd- und zum Nordpol, auf den Mount Everest – hat er sie gefunden. Aber ist Stille auch in der Stadt zu erfahren? Im turbulenten Oslo, wo er lebt? Ja, wenn man bereit ist, die Welt auszusperren und eine Reise in sein Inneres anzutreten, kann man auf dem Weg zur Arbeit, beim Lesen, Stricken, Musikhören, beim Abwaschen, beim Yoga »seinen eigenen Südpol finden«, denn »Stille ist überall«.

In this reflective collection of personal essays, poems and meditations, fifty women illuminate the powerful role poetry plays in unleashing their spirits. Juxtaposing the waxing and waning of the moon phases, with cycles of concealing and revealing their own voices, the authors tap into an ancient theme to explore the mystical experience of birthing a poem. What is it about the unique nature of poetry that draws fullness of expression from female hearts?How do poems become conduits to what is most sacred within us?This third book to emerge from the "Journey of the Heart Poetry Project" lifts the veil on these, and other mysterious subjects, surrounding women who spontaneously engage poetry writing as part of their spiritual practice.All proceeds from the book will be donated to a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering women to express themselves through writing.

In today's disconnected, distracted world, it seems like deep love gets harder to maintain every day. We spend more time looking at screens than at each other, cycle through new partners every time the spark starts to fade, and wall away our feelings until we become strangers who share a house and kids. But underneath all this, our souls long for an unbreakable love which deepens over time and lovemaking that gets hotter, not cooler, inside a lifetime commitment. This bond we yearn for is not impossible. It's not even improbable. You can create it in your life right now¿intimacy that opens both you and your partner to a divine awakening you could not create on your own, lovemaking that curls your toes, and a partnership where both people champion each other's best interests, where even the difficult moments bring you closer together. This is sacred relationship, and it exists in these pages. This book is an owner's manual for intimacy, a map for loving at the deepest level, and an invitation into sacred practice where divine connection becomes part of everyday life.

New York, am Anfang des neuen Jahrtausends. Einer jungen Frau stehen die Türen zu einer Welt aus Glanz und Glitter offen. Sie ist groß, schlank und ausgesprochen hübsch. Gerade hat sie an einer Elite-Universität ihren Abschluss gemacht und arbeitet nun in einer angesagten Kunstgalerie. Sie wohnt im teuersten Viertel der Stadt, was sie sich leisten kann, weil sie vor Jahren schon ein kleines Vermögen geerbt hat. Es könnte also nicht besser laufen in ihrem Leben ... In Wirklichkeit jedoch wünscht sie sich nichts sehnlicher, als ihrer Welt den Rücken zu kehren. Von einer dubiosen Psychiaterin lässt sie sich ein ganzes Arsenal an Beruhigungsmitteln, Antidepressiva und Schlaftabletten verschreiben. Mithilfe der Medikamente will sie "Winterschlaf halten". Aber dann merkt sie in einem ihrer wenigen wachen Momente, dass sie im Schlaf ein eigenes Leben führt. Sie findet Kreditkartenabrechnungen, die auf Shoppingtouren und Friseurbesuche hindeuten. Und scheinbar chattet sie regelmäßig mit wildfremden Männern in merkwürdigen Internetforen. Erinnern kann sie sich daran aber nicht.

I believe in causal connection. I am convinced that I was a S.O.B. in my previous life and had hurt lots of women. This life is to repay some of the debts. Thus the reason of the book. It is to help to free the hundreds of millions of women who are still under the control of men. For millennia, women have been men's prisoners and slaves. Slavery of women is still going on in many countries. The book traces the slavery to its very beginning and identifies the one-tool men have been using to imprison them. It was a recent event measured in evolutionary scale. Knowing the when and the how will enable the ultimate liberation of all women. Though a stronger sex, there is one universal womanly "weakness." It is an innate sense of insecurity. This "weakness," however, was a must for the survival of our species during the past millions of dark years. Women today have no more need to feel insecure. But it is still there, playing harmful psychological game to women. To know this insecurity is to allow women to deal with it effectively. The book also points out the many potential traps and downfalls to women. The most damaging trap for women is religion. All religions treat women as second-class citizens. The other is to have children. They are career killers. Getting married is also a bad idea. 50% of the marriages in North America end up in divorce and most are initiated by women. Statistics don't lie. W.O.M.A.N. is an acronym for world of man ain't nice. Our world is a mess--wholesale environmental deterioration, wars, over-population and poverty are rampant. They are mostly man-made, by the male gender, that is. Our only hope is woman. The misery won't end as long as men are allowed to run our world. Women are our saviors. But women can't save the world without a tool. The tool is moral selfishness, which is the other central message of the book. Thank you.
