Praise for Unplugging the Patriarchy
'I expected transformation. What I didn't expect was page-turning suspense and adventure. I couldn't put it down!'
MARINA SPENCE, author of Make Every Day a Friday! and founder of The Pink Edge.

'Absolutely wonderful! It's rare for a mystic to let us see her artistry, just as it 's rare to glimpse the inner workings of government and business. Here is a thrilling view into the compassionate heart of the mystic, the confused heart of greed, and the inevitable liberation when the two meet.'
PAMELA WILSON, founder of Fellowship of the Heart.

Reading « Unplugging the patriarchy » is not only a journey into the heart of a new age...It is not only a journey to visit the arcane of the power of our world...It is a deep dive into the spiritual journey of a real seeker of truth...The more I entered into the book, the more I could feel deep connection with Lucia's journey...Through her doubts, her errors, her sharing's...I could feel my own doubts, errors, arrogance, ego's habits, spiritual desires....And, beyond the content of the book, I could deeply recognize myself...I could identify to what she experienced as a woman, as a spiritual seeker...
Beyond the words, the story, the power of people and of mysticism, I could feel real spiritual values : Determination, Humility, Authenticity, Self-knowledge, Responsibility, Unconditional Love and Truth...And because of this instantaneous recognition, I could enter with more and more joy and confidence into Lucia's narration and feel inside me a spontaneous movement of tenderness for her.
Sitting in my chair and holding the book, I felt like an old tree sharing the link of a powerful lineage of light...It was like to reanimate this connection and to share my light with whole of a powerful network of spiritual warriors...I could see how it was beautiful and true to reopen this gate within me and to participate to this spiritual movement of light...
And thanks to this connection to this web of light, I could embrace all the patriarchy, not with a feeling of anger and desire of revenge. I could embrace it with light and peace inside my heart. I was not animating War. I was creating Peace as I was in confidence with the huge network of spiritual warriors who are holding the book and feel the same connection as me.
Thank you Lucia for the settlement of this amazing web of light.

Format: Paperback
This is an amazing book! I didn't want to put the book down. It's an enchanting journey of a spiritual seeker and mystic into the innermost workings of the universe and the shaping of Earth's political and religious history. Written with a lot of inner dialog, Unplugging the Patriarchy is enormously entertaining. For an aspiring mystic, this book offers a rare glimpse into psychic perception and evolution of consciousness.

As a woman who has been on a spiritual mystical journey most of my life, I could identify very closely with lifetimes of inner repression and facing a choice of either conforming to the rules of the deadening patriarchy or following my heart and risking becoming an outcast. As for men, I think that the book offers insights into the mystical dimensions of our everyday lives and how men's conditioning in the patriarchic society has been holding them back from spiritual evolution. Thank you Lucia. What a wonderful gift to the world!

Unplugging the Patriarchy captured my heart as I traveled with Lucia and her friends on this mystical journey. As Lucia shared her doubts, fears, and emotions as she progressed further into unplugging, it helped me purge lifetimes of old energy and fear that have kept me blocked. I felt the new web of Light available for all to move higher in consciousness. Way to go Lucia!!! A definite must read in letting go of the heavier energies and embracing the new energy on Earth now. Blessings! KDF

Format: Paperback
In this spiritual adventure, Lucia and her friends form a mystical bond and take on the energies of hierarchy, dominance and control, seeking to release those energies from themselves and for the planet. The project and the story speak to commitment from the heart and the dreaming of a new world by first clearing the old.

A page-turning read and a fascinating look at the hidden world of female mystics.

Brava!!!

Format: Paperback
The author has created a well written page-turner that is dealing with one of the most critical topics of our time, the domination of humanity by a small group of destructive and deluded controllers. She bridges this timely drama with the worlds of metaphysical attunement and the re-awakening and re-empowering of the feminine. "Unplugging" points to a critical missing piece for the required turning at this epic fork in the road for planet Earth. Enjoy!

I could not put this book down. I leaned so much about what the patriarchy has done to our world. I have ordered more copies to give to friends and family. This is a must read for those who are concerned about the Earth and what we can do to help her during this time of great change at the end of these two time cycles.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By D&D TOP 100 REVIEWER on March 14, 2011
Format: Paperback
This engrossing tale unfolds like an esoteric detective story. The book takes the form of a spiritual journey over an extended period, with a series of exploratory visits by the heroine to many places in the US and Europe (particularly Washington and London) to scry out their occult workings. She delves deeply into the energetic aspects of the patriarchal system, uncovering the inner functionings that underpin, and provide the power for, male domination.

At the same time it's a fascinating investigation into our planet's hidden energies as the earth's chakras and power points are insightfully identified and methodically tracked. Eventually, marvelously simple yet elegant systems are uncovered, along with the manner in which they have been captured, twisted and corrupted by patriarchy. In an effort to reverse the major distortions of the last few thousand years, the various parts of these systems are targeted by subtle but massive energies channelled through adepts here on earth.

The author excitingly addresses a deep yearning felt by so many of us: transformation from our current extremely unbalanced and therefore unstable state into true balance in our world. This book seems to offer a solution: keen masculine analysis and planning (the fuel) in equal partnership with enormous feminine power (the engine) promising a drive towards something completely new.

Although the adventure slowed towards the end, in a most puzzling and unnecessary manner, overall it is one of the most inspirational books I have ever read. Captivating.

More About the Author

Lucia René's book, Unplugging the Patriarchy, won the Nautilus Book Award and the Best Books 2010 Award.

Her exploration of consciousness, which has spanned 45 years, drew her to the practices of Hinduism, Zen, Vajrayana Buddhism, and Advaita and culminated in a 17-year apprenticeship to an enlightened master of American Buddhism, psychic development, and mysticism. During this time, she was ordained as a Buddhist monk and lectured on meditation and mysticism at universities throughout the United States.

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 continue her dharmic work in the third dimension. The result was the dissolution of what remained of her egoic structure and a profound spiritual awakening.

In 2010 and 2011, her dharmic work shifted from unplugging the Patriarchy to rebalancing the feminine/masculine energies on the planet. To this end, she worked with women around the world in workshops and teleconferences to help them throw off their conditioning in order to stand more fully in their power, and with mixed groups of men and women to help them reclaim their connection with the sacred energy of the Divine Feminine.

In 2012 and 2013, she founded two cutting-edge projects for women: Beyond Mysticism and AWAKEN Academy. Both had a significant, global impact on the energetics of female collaboration.

Lucia's strong suit is her ability to communicate, in crystal clear terms, complex spiritual ideas. Her speciality is mysticism--the ability to navigate alternate dimensions--and she uses the sacred voice to help others do the same.
