The third in the series of Karen Tate's "Manifesting a New Normal" anthology trilogy,* Awaken the Feminine! Dismantling Domination to Restore Balance on Mother Earth continues the idea that what we've come to recognize as feminine - whether deity, archetypes and ideals - are the road map to humanity's salvation. Hidden for a time, but always with us, the Feminine is making her acclaimed debut.
For years, the Great She has become more and more integrated into all our lives and finally, in this, our eleventh hour, She is being recognized as the alternative to patriarchal insanity. As more people feel under siege from corporate domination, as bastions of authority crumble across the globe, as environmental challenges threaten our future and security, people are looking for new answers to reshape society. They've come to realize the hallmarks of the Sacred Feminine offer a new path and level playing field. They hear Her clarion's call and turn to their heart wisdom and intuition, ideals of partnership, inclusivity, compassion and negotiation to nurture healthy interconnections. They reject domination and exploitation and the shallowness of consumerism for personal development and the art of being. In Awaken the Feminine, we glean from the shared wisdom of wayshowers exploring how the teachings of the Great Mother is our saving grace helping us transform ourselves and our world into a more sustainable future of prosperity, peace, equality and joy.

Reverence for mother-ancestors and for other women as "sisters"can help heal women, psychologically, from patriarchal self-hatred and from cruelty towards other women. Awaken the Feminine!, curated by Rev. Dr. Karen Tate, has this--as well as saving the earth--as its blessed and ambitious goals.
-- Phyllis Chesler, Feminist Foremother, Author of Woman's Inhumanity to Woman.
At this crucial time when all living systems on Earth are severely threatened due to unbridled greed, exploitation, and toxic domination, thiswise and dynamic anthology affirms our individual and collective powers to manifest social, spiritual, political, and cultural transformation. We are called to "rethink everything" and to step forward in honor of diversity and mutual respect for each other and for all life on Earth. Thank you, Karen, for assembling this inspiring collection of voices.
