UNPLUGGING THE PATRIARCHY by Lucia Rene

“Power of Reconciliation.” This revolutionary approach works on the ancient wounds that underlie current social norms to bring a possibility of lasting and positive change

of forgiveness, compassion and mutual appreciation of the sacredness of life, the
women and men of a group or institution who participate in this process are
empowered to jointly confront the realities of gender oppression and conditioning
For an overview of the times we live in and a prescription for moving cultures from

The RETURN of the FEMININE and the WORLD SOUL
www.workingwithoneness.org/feminine.html Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee
Vaughan-Lee describes clearly the reason why the Feminine is now essential to
building a new earth. In recent years his writing has focused on spiritual responsibility and the emerging global consciousness of oneness. This book speaks deeply to both the feminine and masculine soul.
“Without the feminine nothing new can be born, nothing new can come into existence–we will remain caught in the materialistic images of life that are polluting our planet
and desecrating our souls. We need to return to the core of our being, to where the
sacred comes into existence. And the mystical feminine holds the key to this work of redemption and transformation”.
THE HIDDEN SPIRITUALITY OF MEN www.matthewfox.org
Rev. Matthew Fox

Andrew Harvey’s wise and joyous prose brings home the necessary union of spiritual practice and radical action. But it does much more than
that. It makes us WANT to roll up our sleeves and get to work. I seduces us to create change from the inside out, or as Gandhi said, to be the peace we long to see in the
world. Prophets throughout the ages have said what Andrew Harvey is saying, but
never in language as useful for our times. He join the ranks of the great wise ones
“the sages and the radicals “in his dream for a world of peace.” You might ask what does this book have to do with our conversation about creating balance and healing between gender? The principles of Sacred Activism can be applied to any and all circumstances and the issues of our times. Motivating, realistic and ultimately
