A Seven-Step Personal Transformation
Greetings and thank you for the purchase of my Chap-book. I am a Sesheta, Cultural Transformation Catalyst, and Poet. The goal of this Chap-book is to empower a new generation of Womanist Leaders who lead through the Feminine Form.
This Chap-book will explore, through Poetry and Talk, a source of Feminine Power and the Essence of what it means to be a Black Woman in the Twenty-First Century.
My hope is that the reader begins to embody her Feminine Essence as a source of power and heal the wounds of her Emotional Body. This will take you on an internal journey and to the heart of what really matters to you.
As women, we are heirs to a grand mission, that of reconstructing society in the Twenty-First Century. Who is better acclimated to shape society than we women? It is a courageous endeavor that compels women to become leaders in the sector of society we find ourselves in.
But there are challenges we will face in the reconstruction of a genuine self. First, we carry a double burden, one is caring for the family, and the other is discrimination in the workplace. These two challenges hamper the process of personal transformation. Personal transformation demands that one find a place of quiet and serenity from which to contemplate life and the choices that were made and the decisions that have to be made in the future.
To address these challenges, I created the Womanist Empowerment Series and this Chap-Book. This book is for the Woman, who wants to discover an organic source of power which is fundamentally different than masculine power. It is Feminine Power, an organic energy source that transforms and empowers, not control and dominate.
Feeling shut out of Main Stream America, I searched for a way to honor my most creative ideas. The Seven Steps to Personal Transformation were the result. The Steps are part autobiographical, and part Buddhist Psychology sprinkled with wisdom gained through over twenty years in public education and twenty-seven years as practicing member of Nichiren Daishonin’s Buddhism.
Furthermore, the coming age is one of the Transformations which necessitates that Women be instrumental in co-creating a “Culture of Healing”, that is vital for the survival of all people on the earth. It is healing that is more about letting go of the things that cause us to suffer. Pain is an inevitable part of the human condition. On the other hand, suffering is a choice.
Another important aspect to develop in this, “Age of Transformation”, is Feminine Intuition. It is a deep knowing that will help you to learn the ways of the Storytelling Mind. The Mind loves stories, especially the ones it tells itself. Perhaps an adult unknowingly passed on a story for you. Or, you may have been ascribed to a story in your family and as a member of society. You can decide whether you want to continue to live that story or create a New Story that will transform your life. This Chap-Book will assist you with your Personal Transformation.
We Black Women lost an important connection to our traditional way of life. To gain that reconnection we must first acknowledge the inherent problems we have faced living in America.
The Black Woman’ mental health has been pushed to the rear. Our main concern has been to take care of the family and children which negated discovering a personal identity.
Thus our communities, families and ultimately the world have suffered tremendously.
To help you reconnect with your feminine intuition and utilize this Chap Book to its intended use, a webinar is planned for the summer of 2016 which will help assist you in the implementation of the Seven Steps.
One component of the Seven Steps is Mindfulness. Mindfulness is attentiveness to the presents and what is happening in your body, mind and spirit.
Mindfulness allows you the introspection to realize how important it is to encounter life as it is instead of how you think it should be. This will assist you in experiencing the unchanging nature of the Mind.
Through the practice of mindfulness, you will discover a greater purpose for your life as you awaken, nurture, and enhance the feminine gifts of intuition and second sight.
This Chap-Book also addresses the need for authentic leadership models for young women and the consequence of failing to fulfill one’s role in life. Readers will learn how to heal the heart and empower the Feminine Aspect of life and develop unique leadership skills.
As you read the series of Chap-Books, you will have the opportunity to adopt a feminine archetype for personal and professional success. The most important issue the book will address is the Social Status of Women and the role we will play in the Twenty-First Century
