Instead of focusing on one specific book for this post, I thought I’d provide a list of great books for women. Hope you enjoy!
“She” by Robert Johnson— Using the Greek myths of Eros and Psyche, the author delves into female psychology in a readable and easily understood manner. At less than 100 pages, this is a fairly quick and terrific read for gaining a deeper understanding of female psychology. [Side note: Johnson also wrote “He” which is all about male psychology. But since we’re talking women’s books today, I’ll have to leave that one for another post.]
“When the Drummers Were Women” by Layne Redmond— A fascinating book on the history of matriarchal societies and how drumming fits into that mix. Some beautiful photos enhance the historical timeline. A little bit heavy on ancient history but incredibly interesting to trace womans’ roots through time.
“The Heroine’s Journey” by Maureen Murdock— We all know the stories of King Arthur and Camelot, the Fisher King, and other “quest to save the kingdom and rescue the princess” tales. In those stories, it’s always the man who is called to the Quest, so it can be difficult to translate the stages of the journey to a woman’s perspective. This book does that in a wonderful way.
The trio of books by Judith Duerk— “I Sit Listening to the Wind,” “Circle of Stones, ” and “The Circle Continues” are all fabulous books for women to explore. Full of short meditations and personal stories of growth and change, these books and great for using as part of a regular meditation or devotional practice.
