Wild Feminine: Finding Power, Spirit, & Joy in the Female Body

Tami Lynn Kent, Atria/Beyond Words, $16.99 trade paper (370p) ISBN 978-1-58270-284-1
Holistic women's healthcare provider and Holistic Pelvic Care founder Kent offers a groundbreaking yet practical mapping of the female energy system with her first book. In a world in which women are notably absent in "all things worthy of study," Kent argues for the importance of exploring the base of female power. Holistic Pelvic Care was created to help women return to their roots and resolve childbirth trauma, sexual trauma, stress, and other issues. Kent believes that women, using her methods, can access the heart of the feminine, reclaim their sacred selves, and heal. She offers exercises to assess levels of spiritual wholeness, and includes detailed instruction on self-administered pelvic care, which she believes helps women to re-embody the feminine. In her book, Kent proceeds with a solidly New Age vibe, which some readers may mistake for a lack of substance or depth; the focus here is on releasing negative energies from "the pelvic bowl" through self-awareness, breathing, and vaginal massage, which in Kent's practice has yielded positive effects for her clients. Leaders in the alternative women's health movement have already embraced Kent's teachings wholeheartedly, and many readers are sure to follow suit. (Feb.)
