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.

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

I was recommended to read this book for an upcoming spiritual journey I am taking to Egypt. This book IMMEDIATELY sucked me in and I could not put it down! I teach many "Gender & Power" courses and from the title I expected this to be a book about feminism and spirituality...but that's just a TINY DROP IN THE BUCKET for all that's revealed and discussed! This book resonated so deeply within me, having a profound effect upon my own spiritual growth, as well as deepened my understanding of mysticism. In sum, this book is POWERFUL, providing hope that I haven't felt in a very long time...Thank you, Lucia! What an incredible gift you have given us...

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
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.
