"Always urging us into circle and into peace, the healing power of Jean Shinoda Bolen's work and thought transforms all who will allow encounter. Jean never tires of wanting and working for our freedom, our healing, and our earth." - Alice Walker

"Jean Shinoda Bolen shows us how the cult of masculinity is endangering us all. Women and men are equally human and fallible but at least women don't have our masculinity to prove - and that alone may make us the main saviors of this fragile Spaceship Earth." -Gloria Steinem

"This is the most inspiring and optimistic book I've read in years. It tells how women working together can bring us peace and save the planet. Jean Shinoda Bolen invites us all to join the next, most powerful wave of the women's movement. Count me in!" -Isabel Allende
In its original edition, this culmination of Jean Shinoda Bolen's life's work sold over 25,000 copies. Now in paperback for the first time Urgent Message from Mother is a call to action for all the women of the world.

This unique combination of visionary thinking and practical how-to seeks to galvanize the power of women acting together in order to save our world. Bolen outlines the lessons we can learn from the women's movement, draws on Jungian psychology and the sacred feminine, and gives powerful examples of women coming together all over the globe and making a significant impact.
