From the Back Cover
When novelist Kuwana Haulsey heard the story of an African tribe that celebrates mothers with the songs of warriors, she was entranced. After a new mother leaves home for the first time after giving birth, everyone she meets along the road greets her with a sacred song otherwise reserved for those returning from battle. She's honored as having lived through a rite of passage that will forever mark her as abundant and powerful and blessed. Everything I Needed to Know I Learned from My Six-Month-Old fuses memoir, spirituality and self-development in a moving tribute to the lessons Kuwana's infant son taught her. Kuwana Haulsey movingly explores motherhood as a means of waking up her own—and her reader's—innate potential for personal transformation.
