I started reading last night, and your book brought me to tears. Here, on paper, written by bright, wise women, were words that affirmed my life experience and perspective. Here are people who view the world with the vision of hope and wholeness as I do, who don't think I'm crazy and don't push me to the margins. Thank you so very much. Your book will help to transform me, other women, and I hope, our whole culture. I'd like to buy a gross of these books to give to so many women out there I know in so many places who need to be affirmed and empowered by your message. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I cannot tell you how impressed I was with this collection of essays. I purchased several copies to give to my women friends, especially those in the mid-stage of their lives. It offers humorous as well as heart-breaking stories of women's strenth and empowerment found, of course, in the lives of every woman. Please give it a read. It's worth it!

I bought this book after going to a book signing circle conversation led by Kathe Schaaf. She is wise, authentic, and generous. Her presence is incredibly grounding, loving, and calming. Women's leadership seems to be a growing buzz word, with many wishing to profit jumping on the bandwagon to hang their shingle. This book, and its authors are the REAL DEAL, grassroots women sharing their hard-won insights, learnings and visions in order to help other women settle more confidently into themselves as leaders and truth tellers in a world so parched for both. The ideas expressed are profoundly important ones, not just fluff, but rather truly world-changing ideas that when taken together lay a roadmap for humanity's destiny in abundance, wisdom, and grace. This book has incredible depth, breadth, and reach, drawing from women with different religious, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. The women's stories gently touch upon common threads and naturally lead us to the conclusion that we are much more alike than we are different. It feels as though each essayist is sitting in a circle of friends and telling her story from her heart, in her most authentic voice - raw, vulnerable, and sincere. We are longing to tell and hear these stories, we need these stories, and I found that when the book was done, I was wishing the storytelling could go on and on. As soon as I can, I plan to buy a copy for every woman I love. It has been long time since I've felt strongly enough about any book to do so.

This book is a treasure for women of all ages!
As I savor each essay , moved and grateful for the women and their experiences and wisdom shared, I feel like I am holding a pot of gold!
To all the gold diggers and hydrofrackers out there who are destroying the ancient land, water and cultures; you are looking in the wrong place!
Women ,Spirituality and Transformative Leadership is where its at!
This is a very real, down to earth compilation of inspiring stories!
