Spirit literally lifted my arm and put my hand onto this book in a bookstore. While I have been on a spiritual self-healing path for some time and discovered many wonderful books, SACRED WOMAN is truly a masterpiece, an incredibly user-friendly guide that inspires you to begin changing your life, raising your spirit and claiming your power before you're through with the second chapter! Well-researched and beautifully written, this book is for anyone who wants to feel their best and live to their full potential. Thank you, Queen Afua, for this amazing and lovely resource.

Queen Afua enlightens us again with her second book, SACRED WOMAN. It is pretty hard to follow so I suggest you highlight like crazy. It really is the format the she uses in her wholistic center laid out in book form. There is so much to learn so keep your brain wide open! She begins with Kemetic history and continues with the nine gateways to journey on to becoming a centered Womb-Man. This book is on my top 10 list of spiritual books. If you are a woman interested in Kemet life and wholistic living, read this.

Format: Hardcover
As a graduate of the "Sacred Woman" program several years ago, led by Queen Afua, I eagerly awaited this blessed book.
This book is a gem and a life saver. It will transform the way that all women look at themselves and other women. Her teachings on the womb and the ways of woman and girl-hood are revolutionary and much needed.
When I received the book, I made a commitment to repeat the Sacred Woman's training again. Some readers may have a problem with the Khamitic Nubian Philosphy and some of the language, however, if you are meditative and open, you gain new knowledge and wisdom that will be beneficial.
As the book progresses through each of the nine "gateways", you will gain a new way of thinking about your self as a whole woman. This is wholistic thinking. Here a woman gets to examine her body temple, her kitchen, her home, relationships and words, etc. Using the recommended tools she can take herself on a joyous spiritual journey. If one never travels through the gateways in deed, the information alone is worth thking in.
I heartily recommend this book to all women regardless of age, race and status. All will benefit from these teachings that will affect not only ourselves, but our families, homes and communities. In the words of poetess-healer Lady Prema, Heal A Woman, Heal A Nation!

Format: Hardcover
This book should be mandatory reading for all woman of the Africa Diaspora!My deepest gratitude goes out to Mother Queen Afua for sharing her story and her lifestyle with those of us who truly need it. I was living very unhealthily and could not understand why I was consistently having health problems, especially reproductive and sinus problems. Sacred Woman brought it all home for me and made it crytal clear! I not only found out the reasons why I was having the problems, but I found good solutions to help eradicate them. Queen Afua has gone in-depth with historical information, complete food guides, and even a schedule that will get you back to appreciating the real, natural woman you are and help you on the road to healthier, happier living. I highly recommed this book to all my sisters living in fear of who they really are, or are living with pain and struggle unhealthy living can bring. Come home, my sisters -- let Queen Afua and Sacred Woman show you the way.

Format: Paperback
For me, this book had its good points and bad points.

I personally loved the ideas of embracing your womb and having a connectedness with your womb as a woman. Coming from somebody who has suffered her fair share of "female problems" it is easy to curse certain parts of your body. Learning to love them and care for them instead is a much better route in my opinion.

Other parts of the book just didn't do anything for me. I couldn't see integrating them into my life although they were interesting to read. And as with many "self help" type of books, it is very preachy in my opinion and leads one to believe there is no room for error or they are destined not to live a fulfilling life.

If you are interested in this book, I would say attempt to preview it first before purchasing to see if it is going to be a book you reach for lots and/or follow.

I have never read a book that made so much sense. This book is the ultimate guidebook for obtaining optimal health - spiritually and physically. Some of the techniques offered are so simple that you wonder why you have not lived accordingly all of your life. I cannot stress enough how important this book is to securing a healthy life. Don't pass this one by.
