I recently had the pleasure of hearing Gail Straub read from her new
book and couldn't wait to get my own copy. I've been a fan of hers ever
since I took a train the trainer workshop from her in1999.

Returning to My Mother's House identifies 5 ways we loose the
connection to the feminine: running from emotion, addiction to doing,
abandoning interior life, losing connection with the body and not
standing up for our true self. Where do you disconnect from the feminine? This is a great place to be looking as the New Year begins.
