I’ve read only 2/3 of Urgent Message from Mother: Gather the Women, Save the World, but I’m telling ya now: Get a copy. Read it. Get fifty copies; hand 'em out on a yuletide street corner.
Men too know how fundamental this book is. Below see snips from a man’s review:
“This is a very, very important book that anyone who cares about the endangered state of the USA and the world must read, male or female.A lotta Bolen’s argument is based on exciting new physiological findings that women respond to stress differently than men do: faced with a bad situation, men do “fight or flight,” whereas women do “tend and befriend.” When the going gets tough, women tend to one another and form powerful tight-knit groups; they also secrete the maternal bonding hormone oxytocin, making their bonding not just a surface reaction, but one anchored in biology. It should be the sex that responds with love, not the one responding with violence, says Bolen, that should be in charge of the human race.
"In Crawford, Mother Cindy Sheehan has changed the balance here in the US. It's because she is speaking as a mother. This book is … a historic compendium of how women have used the feminine archetype and women's ways to heal society....
“Jean Shinoda Bolen is dead-on right when she says that we need to gather the women to save the world. I'm a guy, and I'm certain that it is male or masculine energy that is screwing things up here.” MORE >>>
Gotta admit, she has a point.
Bolen, by the way, is a world renowned lecturer, author of several books, and a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California Medical Center. The "Mother" she refers to in the title of this book is the Great Mother Goddess.
