Summary

The menstrual cycle is a vital and vitalizing system in the female body, and yet our understanding of and respect for this process is both limited and distorted. Few women really know about the physiology of their cycle, and many do not see it as an integral part of their health and well-being, let alone as a potential guide to emotional and spiritual literacy.

Wild Power is a book about feminine power - the power of the menstrual cycle. This book reveals the inner architecture of a woman and the path to power that is encoded in her body. This unique force tutors us in the sacred tasks of each phase of our journey, from our first period to menopause, the perils and the pitfalls, as we grow into our authority and eldership as creators and leaders in the world. In this book the authors explore the three maps of the menstrual cycle that guide women through their inner landscape to meet themselves, get to know their own nature, and develop the psychological muscle to channel the creative and spiritual forces within them.

Written with humor, tenderness and practicality, and packed with women's stories and quotes throughout, Wild Power will restore women to wholeness and reinstate the full majesty and grace of the Feminine.

Eye-opening and EMPOWERING. Like a warm hug!

What an amazing book. It's taught me so much about my emotions, my thoughts and feelings, and how I need to be more gentle with myself and start tuning into my body and what it's telling me. Honestly an incredible read for nay person, of any ag, of any gender and sexuality. IT's so amazing to learn about such a natural human cycle, and that it shouldn't be hidden or painted as taboo, it's something we can all learn from. Great to hear the writers of the book also narrating, as they have fabulously velvety voices with great character.

Informative and Transformative

I really enjoyed this book as, though I have tracked my cycle for a while, never knew how to make any sense or meaning out of what it showed me. Beautifully written and incredibly informative, I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to learn more about periods, contraception, women's health, managing relationships or all of the above.

It would be great if we lived in a world where this book was given to every pre-pubescent child, as it would mean we lived in a world where women understood themselves and men understood the cyclical nature of women.

Love!!

Such a cool book - highly recommended for each and every woman. This book is the actual holy grail. Loved every word. My inner oracle is renewed. I feel I have a friend in me. The sooner our girls, friends, sisters, mothers and grandmothers get this shizzle the better the world will be.

Repetative

Like the idea, learnt of the book at my local yoga class, but I gave up on this book. Found the content repetative and dry. Referring to what you will go on to talk about later is sloppy writing and tedious for the reader/listener. I found myself wanting to skip through. I fell asleep. The info I picked up from this could have been condensed into a pamphlet. Shame really. There is no need for a book which I think largely speaks the truth to be so wooly and full of hippy cliche, perhaps a cultural thing that I found it so cloying. The tools to follow your cycle are definitely worth keeping in mind so I recommend the book for that purpose.

How can something change you life completely straight after one chapter?

If you follow these practices your life will change. Who knew everything you’ve been looking for is inside you? The information I’ve learned in this book I hope will be passed on from generation (me) to generation (my children)
I cannot express in this short space how enlightened I feel by following the simple practice of journaling me cycle and understanding each moment of it.

Life Changing

I have been doing work to heal my menstrual cycle for years now and this is the most comprehensive resource I have come across in terms of looking at the monthly cycle as a whole rather than trying to heal just one part of it. No one part of the cycle stands alone and understanding the nuances of how our energies weave through the cycle has been extremely liberating and further validating. I have deepened my relationship to self and cycle as I've read this and have recommended it to every woman I've met since reading it. Truly powerful, transformative, and necessary for the evolution of our planet. An absolute MUST READ if you are a woman or are curious about the inner workings of womanhood.

Heavy subject, well narrated, important must read!

Highly recommend! Every woman should read this! I found it a bit dense at times, for lighter read on the American topic I recommend Code Red by Lisa Lister

Inspiring AND practical

I typically steer clear of books that sound like they might glorify all things feminine, simply “because: patriarchy”. But this book was recommended to me by a MALE friend who raved that it transformed how he now organizes his own life. The cycles and patterns outlined in Wild Power have given me much-needed perspective to understand and plan around the fluctuations in my energy, moods, and capacities. The permission this understanding has provided means I am kinder to myself - which makes life so so so much easier for my husband. It also gives insight into the spiritual aspects of my approaching menopause that have me feel more confident that I can navigate its depths and perils, and emerge clear. Now I am the one raving to my friends about this book!

Gratitude for this work

A wonderful and comforting guide for any woman struggling with understanding, relating to and honoring our bodies. I feel this can help us all relate compassionately to one another, empowering us to embrace our collective role in our communities, families and with ourselves.

Beautiful and empowering guidance on how to value your feminine compass

I loved that this book was truly a testament to how the woman Spencerville cycle can give her a compass for discovering her own power, and excepting her own vulnerability. I do feel as that the book was a tad bit repetitive, and would suggest that you could really read the last two chapters and be totally cool with it all! They definitely emphasize using their website so much that it almost seems as though the book is really just a version of Cliff Notes for the online courses that they are selling. Granted, the book Is much more affordable and was a really great lesson! I want to share this with all of my friends now!
