If Women Rose Rooted

Sharon Blackie More by this author...£9.99

A life-changing journey from the wasteland of modern society to a place of nourishment and connection. If Women Rose Rooted has been described as both transformative and essential.

Sharon Blackie leads the reader on a quest to find their place in the world, drawing inspiration from the wise and powerful females in native mythology, and guidance from contemporary women who have re-rooted themselves in land and community and taken responsibility for shaping the future.

Beautifully written, honest and moving, If Women Rose Rooted is a passionate song to a different kind of femininity, a rallying cry for women to reawaken their natural power - not just for the sake of their own wellbeing, but for love of this threatened earth.

As a childfree woman herself (only touched upon lightly) I was grateful, Blackie pushes back gently on the over-reliance on ‘mother earth’ and ‘womb’ metaphors in a lot of contemporary female mysticism/spirituality – a lazy metaphor that excludes so many of us.
