What They're Saying about Women of Wisdom:
“This anthology of wisdom from some of the greatest women thinkers and writers of our time is a rare treasure. It inspires, informs, and gives us hope for the future in which the best potential of all people, and of our precious earth, can be realized.” —Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., author of Inner Peace for busy Women and A Woman’s Book of Life.
“What a magnificent job you did with “Women of Wisdom” The book is beautifully done, the women in it are brilliant, the graphics are exquisite, and the intelligence of your whole organization and effort are stunning.” —Barbara Marx Hubbard, author of The Hunger of Eve and Conscious Evolution and Emergence.
“First read this book carefully, perhaps aloud to a friend. Then dance with it. Then draw in it. Then bundle it in a leather pouch and take it someplace sacred—like under a large tree, alongside clear water, into the temple of a coffee shop, into a circle of women. Then read this book again. There is wisdom here that women and companioning men need in order to make the world anew. Bravo to Kris Steinnes for holding the vision, calling the gatherings, and harvesting these voices and images.” —Christina Baldwin, author of Life’s Companion, Calling the Circle, The Seven Whispers, and Storycatcher.
“I have just finished reading from cover to cover Women of Wisdom. I do congratulate you on a powerful book. I am very proud to be among this company Your own piece is an excellent introduction to all that follows. I hope many people will feel in their bones what this book is about. As I read, I remembered detail by detail my journey to Seattle, my time with Jean Shinoda Bolen over dinner, the drive to the church - happy memories!”
“If you would like to be in the company of women who are encouraging other women to step forward, be leaders, and transform the world from one of fear to one of love, this is the book for you. Women and men can benefit from the wisdom, hope, and challenge that fills each page. It is easy to feel like wrapping yourself up in the pages of this book so you can absorb every ounce of goodness it offers. Kris does an outstanding job of making the spoken words, artwork and ceremonies come to life on the written page.”
—Krysta Gibson, editor, New Spirit Journal
“It's a lovely book, packed with wisdom and insight, hope and power. It's one I plan to read and re-read often and I hope you will too.” —Paula Russell
“Women of Wisdom (the book) is a distillate of the spirit from Women of Wisdom (the conferences that go back to 1993), both inspired by Kris Steinnes a woman of wisdom. This anthology is an expression of the sacred feminine as voiced through individual women who have keynoted the conferences. It is a rich and inspiring women’s spirituality anthology. Women who have felt a deep yearning for the return of the divine feminine, or had a significant dream of a numinous woman or goddess, or value the feminine principle will find insights and encouragement to bring what they know into the world.” —Jean Shinoda Bolen, M.D. author of Goddesses in Everywoman and Urgent Message From Mother ( http://www.jeanbolen.com)
