Prescott College Advisor Regina Sara Ryan and yoga instructor Shinay Tredeau co-authored the book Women Challenge the Lie: 8 Radical Moves to Get Beyond "Never Good Enough." Join these two authors as they share their insights at the Peregrine.
About the Book
Women Challenge the Lie… is an invitation for women of all ages to confront the “Never Good Enough” — a common subtext of modern life that undermines their appreciation of inherent beauty and goodness. The authors recommend 8 Radical Moves, to take alone or ideally in the good company of other women, to meet this challenge, and thereby sustain and deepen this commitment to selfunderstanding and compassion.
Each of the 8 Radical Moves provides a different access to a woman’s “basic goodness.” For one, the Move to “Inhabit Your Body” will be key to claiming (or reclaiming) a more loving relationship with herself. For another, the Move called “Learn to Fly” will be just the encouragement needed to refine a meditation practice or further ignite a spiritual longing.
Filled with dozens of personal stories and practical wisdom, Women Challenge the Lie is ideal for women’s groups and book clubs; yoga teachers and students; mothers and daughters; caring friends and sisters.
