Who are you as a woman? What does it mean to be a woman? Who are you as a spirit of light?
As women, the art of listening to the self begins the quest toward seeing ourselves more clearly, moving with enhanced fluidity through life, having a greater sense of fulfillment and expanding our own enlightenment. By honoring a dialogue of daily spiritual meditations and deeply introspective questions, we discover the power of the feminine. In over 2,500 years, The Feminine Light is the first known translated version of The Tao Te Ching written by a woman specifically for Women.

The Tao Te Ching, written by Lao-Tzu, a Chinese philosopher who lived in the 6th century B.C., is a simple yet deeply rich book containing 81 verses relating to the ways of nature. They speak to the truths of the universe in order to help you find your path and to live your life in harmony with yourself and others. The Tao (pronounced Dao) loosely translated into English from Chinese means the â€œway, path or truth,â€ an all-embracing truth present everywhere revealing the laws of nature, the polarities of existence, Yin-Yang, Darkness and Light.
In The Feminine Light, following each of the newly translated verses, there are thoughtfully profound questions to assist in understanding and living the material â€“ the philosophy of the Tao. By immersing oneself in the Tao, one is able to come to know oneself. A companion for lifeâ€¦
â€œFrom caring comes courage.â€ â€“Lao-Tzu
