From the Inside Flap
"The modern heroine's journey of consciousness is unique to each woman based on what she is here to learn, master, complete, balance, and heal at a Soul level."
"The journey of spiritual growth is different from the visual, physical, public hero's journey we typically recognize in movies. Spiritual growth is a personal, internal, sacred, emotional experience often viewed only by invitation."
"She transforms her own dark into her own light. She sees her private shadows - and loves them. She meets her emotional depths - and owns it. She faces her private fears of separation - and rises above the illusions. She is the source of her Self and she is always in a state of greater becoming."
"And in the moment when she said YES - quietly, softly, with eyes closing in sweet surrender - she was saying YES to her heart, her truth, her deepest desires. She was saying YES to this part of herself for the first time."

I will now describe my path so you can see the parallels as I continue the review of the book in that context.
I got my first taste of cosmic consciousness long before a few years ago.
I went through my crisis (the one described in the book) in the late 1980's that knocked me off the elevator and onto the spiral (both of which are well described in the book), it was not a financial crisis (one of several possibilities the author describes, including the possibility that I went through) but in some ways even worse, I went through a massive mental and emotional existential crisis, it was essentially a crisis of faith.
Brought on in part by the Joseph Campbell mythology programs on PBS in the late 1980's with Bill Moyers.
Also brought on in part by a trip back to the family home in Germany (where my parents came from) in 1987.
When I came back from Germany I felt so out of place, quite literally like an alien from another planet, and went into a deep depression (really felt like an alien from another planet after my trip to Germany in 1976, too, but was too young at the time to do anything about it or really put two and two together). The author talks about the depression that can happen. I went through a particularly severe version of it.
The questions who am I? and what am I doing here? that the author talks about are very familiar ones to me.
During that time in the late 1980's the opportunity came along that eventually put me on the spiral though I most certainly did not recognize it as such at the time, as the author also talks about.
As for the risk to venture into unknown territory where nothing was known, promised, or seen, I know all about that and the author describes it well.
I took the deep dive described in the book starting at the beginning of 1991, leaving everything behind except my work and even left that behind in 1999 (and although a typical American would fight that as described in the book, I did not, but then I had spiritual help in understanding what was going on; but I was disappointed that that career was over, one I had trained hard for, and only came to terms with that somewhat later).
The move in 1991 was very scary at the time but also exhilarating. It turned out to be the best decision I ever made in my life. And I had to do it because I was on the verge of death mentally and emotionally if I didn't, something that the book also describes. I could not stand my previous mundane life here anymore.
But I also agree with the need stated in the book to continue to have to navigate the mundane world to some extent yet too in other words continue to deal with the lower levels.
The author talks about some spiritual concepts that you may be unfamiliar with if you are new to the path. Trust them, I can vouch for them, and covering them in detail would take a book in each case, which is why she doesn't do it. She is overly familiar with them relative to a beginner as am I. She recommends some books about them immediately in that part of her book that I recommend highly. That is one of the reasons why I am willing to give this review five stars.
As for the 11 stages, I went through nearly all of it except the major doubts after my leap. The major doubts did not happen because I had nothing to lose. I was not connected to American society and really liked my new path almost immediately as soon as I was on it. It became a huge relief for me really. And boy did I get to know myself.
I would say I went through some parts of the 11th stage in a particularly active way just recently.
One final note. I am a man. This book is written by a woman for women. It is equally relevant for men. However I am aware that women tend to have stronger intuition than men. But I have strong intuition. Ladies I encourage you to go for it if you feel drawn to this book. But if one substitutes he for she in the book it is equally applicable to men who are drawn to it. I for one have been through the entire path. What the author writes is essentially my life story for the past few decades.
It is an excellent, well-written book also with a dose of humor in just the right places.
I would sure have liked a manual like this when I started the process.
But I believe society was not ready for it then.
I think it is now - and the book says as much near the end.
And I agree with the book that there are no shortcuts to the process.
I will add that astrology, which is referenced in the book, is helpful to the process. I am talking about the comprehensive astrology, not newspaper astrology. If you are new to it the author can help she makes very correct references in the book, she obviously knows the subject well.
Molly not only defines terms, but also builds a step-by-step introduction for anyone who is trying to make sense of confusing events that have occurred in her own life.
It is helpful to have read the first book in the series, as it is often referenced to illustrate common points along the journey. However if you are one who easily identifies with others and have come a long way on your own journey, it is possible to dive right in here. Molly describes the examples enough that most people can understand the point.
I am starting to reread it tomorrow. The guidance this book offers is practical, simple, encouraging, and comforting.
