Linda C. (Seagull) reviewed The Woman's Book of Courage : Meditations for Empowerment Peace of Mind on
Helpful Score: 2
If you are rushed from morning to night and never seemed to have the time or privacy for meditation, this book is for you. Small enough to hide behind your back when you dash to the bathroom, each meditation is short enough to be read in the time it takes to brush your teeth.
I laughed out loud when reading "Putting our white horse out to pasture". Here's an excerpt from page 16: "Women tend to be habitual rescuers. We leap on our white horses at the fist sign of distress, believing that it is our job to save everyone. It isn't....I was giving a talk at our local hospice meeting about how tiring it is to get stuck in the "rescue" mode. One woman volunteer exhaustedly said, "I agree, but what if your white horse is parked next to your husband's mule?"
Offers over 100 heartfelt entries showing us how to call on innate courage as well as increase personal empowerment and peace of mind. Includes meditations, affirmations, and poignant true stories that can be randomly dipped into or read as a monthly meditational guide. THIS IS AN EXCELLENT BOOK FOR WOMEN TO READ....
These loving reflections provide wisdom and encouragement to help overcome anxiety, gain self-esteem and improve relationships. They may be used over and over for women in transition or recovery and those wishing to enchance personal power.
