Description

THE LONG-AWAITED new title from bestselling author Lucy H. Pearce.
Burning Woman is a breath-taking and controversial woman’s journey
through history— personal and cultural—on a quest to find and free her
own power.

Uncompromising and all-encompassing, Pearce uncovers the archetype of
the Burning Women of days gone by—Joan of Arc and the witch trials,
through to the way women are burned today in cyber bullying, acid
attacks, shaming and burnout, fearlessly examining the roots of Feminine
power—what it is, how it has been controlled, and why it needs to be
unleashed on the world during our modern Burning Times.

Burning Woman explores:

* Burning from within: a woman’s power—how to build it, engage it and
not be destroyed by it.
* Burning from without: the role of shame, and honour in the time-worn
ways the dominant culture uses fire to control the Feminine.
* The darkness: overcoming our fear of the dark, and discovering its
importance in cultivating power.

This incendiary text was written for women who burn with passion, have
been burned with shame, and who at another time, in another place, would
have been burned at the stake. With contributions from leading burning
women of our era: Isabel Abbott, ALisa Starkweather, Shiloh Sophia
McCloud, Molly Remer, Julie Daley, Bethany Webster ...
