Emerging from the Shadows is an inspirational story that takes readers through the most defining moments in a transformational journey from Fear to Freedom. ‘Fear’ that was primarily generated from domestic and family violence experiences. However, Emerging from the Shadows is not a story of violence and abuse; it’s a story of rebirth and reclaiming a woman’s natural birthright of Mana Wahine.
Mana Wahine encompasses everything sacred and powerful of being a woman. Balanced in Body, Mind, and Soul, and aligned with our physical and ethereal worlds as conduits of ancient knowledge, healing, and enlightenment from our Tipuna (Ancestors) and Papatuanuku (Mother Earth).
This book is written within a cultural and Spiritual context with a recurring overarching theme of Honouring the Wisdom of the Maiden, the Mother, and the Matriarch. The value of matriarchal wisdom and knowledge within our own families is often overlooked in today’s modern society where more and more women and adolescents are seeking solutions from technology, particularly the internet and social media networks and communities.
This inspirational story offers alternative methods of self-realisation and healing and encourages women to reclaim their status of Mana Wahine and their natural birthright of Freedom from Fear.
