This book was chosen to enlighten us to and guide us through Divine & Sacred Feminine Awakening and integrating our spiritual archetype with our self determined sense of creative feminine self.
ABOUT THE BOOK:I wrote this book because I believe when women’s voices are equally esteemed, the culture will change and a different kind of hero will emerge—one who values caretaking, champions compassion, and elevates communication over vengeance and violence. I wrote the book as a call for all people to redefine what it means to be fully human.
I have walked two main paths in my life—the spiritual path and the feminist one—paths that sometimes cross but sometimes feel at cross-purposes. I wanted to blend these two worldviews and write an inclusive book—a book about women, yes, but also a book for everyone who believes in humanity’s potential to rise to the challenges of our times.
Throughout the book I give equal voice to the cool water of my introspective self and the fire of my feminist self.
Part One explores the myths and stories that are in the DNA of our culture. Part Two looks at women and power and redefines what it means to be courageous, daring, and strong. And Part Three offers “A Toolbox for Inner Strength.” I offer introspective exercises to help us be both strong-willed and kind-hearted, to overcome the “imposter syndrome,” and to support each other as we navigate a collective rite of passage. And I include my own stories of failures and victories at work and at home, as a mother and a wife, as a leader in my organization. I do this because I know when one person digs deep and tells her most honest, vulnerable tales, it helps others claim their own stories and use them to grow into their most courageous and creative selves. And that is my greatest hope for Cassandra Speaks.
With love, Elizabeth Lesser
“In Cassandra Speaks, Elizabeth Lesser speaks to the value of finding your voice in the wilderness of these times. It’s about a new kind of hero’s journey, one that replaces violence and domination with deep feeling and courageous communication. It’s about the power of love instead of the love of power. What a blessing!” —Iyanla Vanzant, Author, Host, Iyanla Fix My Life (OWN)
“Elizabeth Lesser does something remarkable in this book. She puts words to something so obvious, that it has been entirely hidden from view. And she does it in a way that leaves us with no choice, but to effect change. Few things give me hope as of late. But this book does. —Jeff Brown, author of Grounded Spirituality and An Uncommon Bond
