The Paradoxical Return of the Feminine:

Journeys to Raise Awareness and Create Peace

by Jeannette M. Gagan, PhD

Is Peace Attainable?
This book sings yes from every page, emphasizing the power of feminine energy and providing a variety of concrete ways both men and women can cultivate feminine energy in their lives.
Chapters begin with raising awareness; practical steps follow, illuminated by the author’s narrative of personal transformation. In plain language, Dr. Gagan simplifies such complex and paradoxical truths as:
  • The return of the feminine requires balancing masculine and feminine energies
  • Spirituality and psychology are linked
  • The brain, especially its ability to create new neuronal pathways, is essential to spirituality
  • Sexuality is a potent pathway for connecting the divine energy of the universe to individual consciousness

The Paradoxical Return of the Feminine is an accessible guide for all who seek to heal themselves and bring unity into their relationships and, indeed, to the world. You, too, can say yes!
