Red Moon - Miranda Grey
Understanding and using the creative, sexual and spiritual gifts of the Menstrual Cycle

For our ancestors the menstrual cycle was a source of wonderful creative, spiritual, sexual, emotional, mental and physical energies. It was a gift that empowered women to renew themselves each month, to manifest and create the world around them, to connect deeply with the land and their family, and to express deep wisdom and inspiration. This ancient female teaching is still available to us in our mythology and nursery tales.

Women who run with the Wolves - Clarissa Pinkola Estes
'... a gift of profound insight, wisdom and love. An oracle from one who knows.' Alice Walker

In the classic Women Who Run With The Wolves, Clarissa Pinkola Estes tells us about the 'wild woman', the wise and ageless presence in the female psyche that gives women their creativity, energy and power.  For centuries, the 'wild woman' has been repressed by a male-orientated value system which trivialises women's emotions.  Thoughtfully written and compelling in its arguments, Women Who Run With The Wolves gives readers a new sense of direction, a self confidence and purpose in their lives.

The Woman in the Shaman's Body - Barbara Tedlock.
Reclaiming the Feminine in Religion and Medicine.

A distinguished anthropologist reveals the long-hidden female roots of the world’s oldest form of religion and medicine. Here is a fascinating expedition into this ancient tradition, from its prehistoric beginnings to the work of women shamans across the globe today.

The Woman in the Shaman’s Body restores women to their essential place in the history of spirituality and celebrates their continuing role in the worldwide resurgence of shamanism today.

The Red Tent - Anita Diamant
The Red Tent is an epic celebration of womanhood, written for women everywhere, regardless of their status, creed or colour. It is the story of a woman whose life was blessed by great love and torn by tragedy, of the lessons she learned through her own experiences and those of the women, and men, whose lives she touched.  
The Red Tent is the fictional tale of Dinah, whose life, like the majority of women in the Old Testament, merits only a passing mention.  Not religious? Don' t worry, this biblical character and the story Anita Diamant has woven from the merest hints, will appeal to all.
