Reviews for The Rainbow Way
When society mapped out Motherhood, it left out one very important area: The Creative Rainbow Mother. The aspect of Motherhood that caters for the Mother's needs, not just of food and shelter but for the creative urge. This book will help you sail these uncharted seas. "The Rainbow Way explores the depths of the creative urge, from psychological, biological, spiritual and cultural perspectives." If you feel that urge, but are not sure how to unleash it, this is the book for you. If you feel that you haven't got time to work with that aspect, gentle exercises and reflections, that only take a moment of your day will help you to walk the path of the Creative Rainbow Mother. I read The Rainbow Way, and within a few days, my life and the way I look at what I do was transformed. Everything I do is creative, from cooking family meals to brushing the children's hair. Through the book, Lucy was my doula for my own creative re-birthing. I realised that what I thought was my creative urge, wasn't, and the frustration of not doing things subsided, making way for the creative flow. Making a few moments here and there has made a profound difference and my family are noticing too.
At the beginning, Lucy promises Ã??Ã?Â¢??This is book is not about doing more stuffÃ??Ã?Â¢?? this book is about you, about what you already do creatively, and how to recognise and work with that. How to make that creative wave, that ripples out across your life, barely disrupting the pond life yet a creative tsunami to you. There are moments of reflection and pauses to ponder and apply what you have just been reading. With inspiration and encouragement from the words of artists and mothers, women just like you who have that desire to create, yet feel that it must be hidden away behind the needs of the family. The Rainbow Way is about opening up to, and connecting with your creative side, bringing those ideas into the light, with paint, wool or words. by Catherine Harris
