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.

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.

Format: Paperback
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!!!

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.

Wow! This is a tour de force! This reads like the very foundation of the transitions going on RIGHT NOW! This should be required reading for mystics, spiritual seekers, shamans et al. And, really, for every human alive today. Get ready for 2012.

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!

Format: Paperback
This wonderful book takes you on an amazing journey inside the truth of our society and how it works. Beyond that how we have collectively participated in creating this society, good and bad. We are all being called upon to examine our contribution and our own buy-in to the patriarchy and our individual egos. I will never see the world in the same way or my own actions in the same way. My personal awareness has increased ten fold. I am so grateful.
Lucia Rene is the real thing. I appreciate her honesty and willingness to go deeply into a difficult and overwhelming topic. She does it beautifully with style and grace. I can't wait for her next book.
