True Stories by Women Exploring Connection and Desire
Blessing by Laurel Lozzi | Foreword by Brig Feltus
Introduction by Andrea Hylen
Twelve women from Sweden; eight women from the United States gathered in a secret Facebook group and on community phone calls stoking the fire to stir up the burning embers of desire, connection and sensuality hidden within our souls. We explored universal experiences of a woman’s body: Menstruation. Childbirth. Menopause. Sexual Desire. We discussed body sensations of sensuality, power, grief, abandonment, trauma life and death with courage and vulnerability. Our experiences included deep listening, a willingness to write our personal stories and at the end of the process, clarity around the next step in leadership.
We invite you to open yourself to a new perspective as you read the stories and ask yourself some questions.
*What if we could spread Universal Love by donating energy, money and time to empower women and girls?
*What if women supported each other with parenting tips instead of judging and comparing and competing to be the best parent with the best child?
*What if we opened to the anomalies in life by accepting our unique differences and stopped trying to be carbon copies of each other?
*What if we accepted that relationships could be monogamous, open, dynamic, hetero, homo, bi and we supported each other to love who we love?
*What if we shared our vulnerability, wisdom, and claimed our personal power and inner authority?
*What if we put our ideas together and changed the things that aren’t working on the planet, finding new solutions and building the future together?
*What if we allowed ourselves to feel everything and to notice it without making anyone else right or wrong?
As you read the stories in this book, we invite you to listen for your own questions and answers. Close your eyes. Connect with your heart. And randomly open to a story. Go now. Enter the pages and be open to the mystery of what will unfold.
Your Voice Matters.

True Stories by Women Transforming Leadership
“The world will be saved by the western woman,” ~ His Holiness the Dalai Lama, at the Peace Summit in Vancouver, 2011. The eighteen women authors in this book give you a glimpse of what it looks like when the western woman explores and discovers herself as a leader. The women share stories of transforming their leadership styles in work, parenting, health care, recovery and love. They challenged themselves to become more visible, to share their unique gifts, to offer new ideas, to heal old wounds and to take inspired action. Their stories demonstrate what is possible when Western women take their place as leaders in the world. From the Foreword by Mary K. Baxter: “Eight years ago, I collaborated with a fellow theatre artist to begin a new theatre company. We had this crazy idea to bring actors to disenfranchised communities to work with kids and teach them storytelling skills. Together we wrote a business plan, built a website, made a budget, auditioned actors and organized a project for a group to travel to Zimbabwe. While there, we had a challenge that required a meeting with our hosts. I don’t remember the words that were said in this meeting, all I can speak to is how I felt. I felt small. I felt like my voice didn’t matter. I felt like I would ask a question and the response would be directed to my male partner. I felt out of place. I felt that my ideas were irrelevant. I felt like I didn’t belong, that I should be in the kitchen cleaning dishes, that my contribution to the conversation was null. What I do remember is that I stayed in the room and contributed to the solution and I was the person on our team who implemented the plan. This is why this book is relevant. The eighteen authors in this book all have their own unique experience gaining and reclaiming their voice of leadership. Our voices matter.” Your Voice Matters, too

From a 9 month Heal My Voice Program of writing, speaking and leadership: The 16 women in this book have opened their hearts to write about a journey of love. The love of a parent, a child, a partner, God and a journey that in the writing has led all of them to more self-love and compassion for themselves and others. They have written about heartache and joy and a myriad of emotions that they discovered on this journey of love. Included in the back of the book is a list of resources for Love in Action: books, songs, blogtalk radio show program links.
