More About the Author
Lucia René has been a professional actress, a computer science consultant, a teacher of self-discovery, and a writer. Her book, Unplugging the Patriarchy, won the Nautilus Book Award and the Best Books 2010 Award.
Her exploration of consciousness has spanned forty years, and has drawn her to the practices of Hinduism, Zen, Advaita and Vajrayana Buddhism, and culminated in a seventeen year apprenticeship to an enlightened master who taught American Buddhism, psychic development, and tantric mysticism. She is an ordained Buddhist monk, has lectured on meditation and mysticism at universities throughout the United States, and has shared her wisdom about how to energetically unplug from the fear-based Patriarchy on numerous teleseminars and radio shows.
Between 2002 and 2007, using her mystical training, Lucia collaborated with other female mystics to identify the hidden energy structures underlying our economic-social-political systems, deconstructed her personal buy-ins to those structures, and offered herself in service to facilitate the dismantling of the structures themselves and their vice-grip on the global collective consciousness.
In July 2010, after many years of self-investigation and selfless service, Lucia experienced the death of her body, but agreed to come back in order to complete her soul's work in the third dimension. The result was the complete dissolution of her egoic structure and a profound spiritual awakening.
Her work, between now and the end of 2012, involves rebalancing the feminine/masculine energies on the planet. To this end, she collaborates with groups all over the world, an activity which facilitates, on an energetic level, the activation of the One Heart/One Mind--a delicate network of rarefied energies that connects, synchronizes, and uplifts world consciousness and is becoming increasingly strong as we transition into the post-2012 Aquarian Age.
