Penelope’s Picks | May 2015

Cycle of HopeIf you want to be inspired, pick up a copy of Cycle of Hope by Tricia Downing.  I met Tricia at the UCSD Women’s conference (She was the Keynote speaker).  Tricia was an avid cyclist  who became a paraplegic after a preoccupied driver plowed into her during a road trip.  Her descriptions of coming back from this injury to being a serious triathlete will blow your mind and open your heart to what is possible for determined humans.

Goddesses Never AgeAlso check out Dr. Christiane Northrup’s latest book, Goddesses Never Age. I heard Dr. Northrup talking about her book (again on Oprah’s wonderful Super Soul Sunday program) and went immediately to Amazon to buy it. It arrived yesterday! I’ve barely begun to skim the surface but I am already altered. I particularly like the focus on holding a notion of ageless vitality rather than being locked into to the kind of subtle but powerful shaping historically associated with being 50, 60, 70, 80, 90. I really appreciate Dr. Northrup’s clear understanding of the crucial importance embodied, emotional experience plays in radiant health. I am eternally grateful for her endorsement which graces the cover of my book:

“Emotional Medicine Rx is an eminently practical, accurate manual for creating health in mind, body, and spirit. I highly recommend it.”

Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Goddesses Never Age, Mother-Daughter Wisdom, The Wisdom of Menopause, and Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom.

Finally, I love how juicy and sex positive Dr. Northrup is. Yay, let’s hear it for pleasure at any age.
