REVIEWS & ENDORSEMENTS
I absolutely loved this book. To me, the best thing is that it throws a positive light on menstruation. I liked the way each phase of the cycle was described, followed by a list of what abilities the phase brings, what to watch out for, strategies and challenges.
Personally, I would use this as a periods reference guide and an ultimate self-help book. This book will be very useful for women who are sensitive to their menstrual cycle ~ Anusha Narasimhan , NetGalley/Goodreads
Enabling women to nurture their life using a uniquely female approach, Miranda Gray shows the remarkable value of the menstural cycle, recognising it as a rich source of practical resources. ~ Cygnus Review
Offers some good guidance. If youâ€™re the kind of person that needs a book to tell you about yourself and you want to know more about your monthly cycle and how it can affect you and how you can harness it and you can get past the rhetoric, then this is a book for you. ~ Robyn, The Druid Network
This an interesting take on the positive side of the menstrual cycle that usually brings most women down just by thinking about it. I enjoyed reading it, and I am looking at putting a cycle in place to manage my self better revolving around my cycle : )
~ Josefina Corona, NetGalley
This is a personal development system with a difference so anyone implementing the techniques found within the covers 'wiil' succeed in their new projects. This book needs to be read and then studied in depth but it will take the reader to a different level of understanding their life as it open up their mind to the power that lies within. ~ Diane Morgan, Footprints, The British Reflexology Association
At last a book on creating success specifically designed for women. Miranda offers us exciting new insights on how to make long lasting changes and to dare to live the life we want. I never thought of using the menstrual cycle as a success tool, but I will now! ~ Shila Jassal, Mphil, Master NLP Practitioner and NLP Trainer, UK.
As a male professional business and life coach I can freely relate to many of the concepts and observations you make about how to make best use of the female â€œphasesâ€ during the course of each month. I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with many business women who I believe would benefit from understanding this powerful approach rather than fighting with it... ~ Ian Dickson, Master coach, UK, www.action-coaching.co.uk
This book is a must read for any woman who is seeking to maximize her ability to accomplish her dreams and goals by utilizing and understanding the power of her menstrual cycle. Miranda Gray provides a practical tool that teaches women how to appreciate and respect the beauty and power of womanhood and feminine energy. This is an excellent resource for mothers to give to their daughters to help them appreciate the gift of their monthly cycles. ~ Cassandra George Sturges, MA, MA, Psy.D, Author & publisher Triumph and Authentik Beauty Publications
At last a book that teaches us to how to harness the power of our cyclic nature! Miranda Gray has provided us with an indispensable guide to understanding how the variable (often considered inferior) nature of womenâ€™s abilities can in fact be an invaluable tool to women and society as a whole. ~ Amy Sedgwick O.T.
