With thunderous grace, world saving solidarity, the power women rise to make a difference, and bring autumnal wisdom to a time that brooks no whiny nay-saying. Ms. Wilder is well named for here, in this remarkable work she explores the wilder shores of women's genius, women's true and necessary power."

Women Sitting in Circles

Embracing Your Power Woman is a course and it is an adventure. You can read it and follow the exercises and lessons on your own or you can do it with a friend, or with a group of women. Taking the journey with a circle of women is exhilarating, because, when women tell their stories, all the women in the circle benefit -- a group energy is created that enlivens and deepens the experience. As we move into the second half of our lives we begin to realize that women are meant to be sisters, not competitors, when we recognize this we begin the process of healing old wounds and entering into loving friendships with other women.

You can form a group in your community to follow the journey to Embracing Your Power Woman, or you can create a group on the Internet.


"Embracing Your Power Woman is more than a book. It is a "course in power" for women whose voices and opinions have long been unheard by our culture...the weekly lessons are an illuminating guide for bringing out the strength and potency of our wisdom years."

-- Joan Borysenko, Ph.D. author of A Woman's Book of Life and Inner Peace for Busy Women
