NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
“Required reading for every woman who longs to step into her power and live with pleasure and purpose.”
— Kris Carr, New York Times best-selling author
Get ready to encounter a book that will change your experience as a woman, in a powerful new way. Author, educator, and School of Womanly Arts founder Regena Thomashauer has been working with women for the past 25 years, and what began as just a few women in her living room has since grown into a global movement with thousands of graduates worldwide.
In her newest book, Pussy: A Reclamation, you’ll discover what no one taught you about the source of your feminine power and how to use it. It’s no secret that women today are still undervalued at home, at work, and in relationship. Too many of us are at war with our bodies and disconnected from our truth.
See, we live in a culture that teaches us to turn off. To play small. To take care of everyone else first. To keep a lid on our dreams and a cork on our truth.
This book is written to reacquaint a woman with her own power source—which is the part of herself she has been taught to ignore, push down, and despise. Indeed, the word that most viscerally sums up that power is, as Regena puts it, “arguably the most powerful pejorative word in the English language.” Like any expletive used effectively, the title of this book is meant to be a wake-up call. It is a reclamation, in a world that desperately requires the feminine.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
- The key practices required to seek and speak your deepest truth, no matter what
- How to embody radical self-celebration, and why it will change your life
- How to end the war with your body—and rather, see it for what it is: beautiful, sacred, powerful, and so, so worthy of approval
- How to trade depletion, obligation, overwork, and resentment for gratitude-filled, passionate contribution to our families, communities, and society
- Why a woman’s sensual awareness is critical for her spiritual, intellectual, and emotional health
- What’s ahead on the next frontier of feminism—and how you can help make it happen
- And oh so much, much more
This provocative, groundbreaking book brings forth a whole new paradigm for women, along with game-changing tools and practices to navigate any area of your life—relationships, career, body, confidence, sensuality, and more.
By turns earthy and erudite, passionately argued and laugh-out-loud funny, Pussy delivers the tools and practices a woman requires to do and be whatever she wants in this life. It’s a call for her to tune in, turn on, and not drop out—but live more richly, fully, and lusciously than she ever thought she could.
There’s a revolution afoot, and you’re invited.
About the Author
Regena Thomashauer (a.k.a. “Mama Gena”) is a revolution: an icon, teacher, author, mother, and founder and CEO of the School of Womanly Arts, which began in her living room in 1998 and has since grown into a global movement. She believes that women are the greatest untapped natural resource on the planet, and she teaches them to turn on their innate feminine power to create a life they love.
Thomashauer’s approach stems from decades of research in the social, cultural and economic history of women, including the ancient Goddess religion, which dominated 30 to 50 centuries of recorded history. She opens doors for women with her distinctive style, which is at once irreverent, unwavering, inspirational, and moving.
In addition to leading the School, Thomashauer has authored three popular books—Mama Gena’s School of Womanly Arts, Mama Gena’s Owner’s and Operator’s Guide To Men, and Mama Gena’s Marriage Manual—and has been featured widely as a leading expert in modern feminism. As a speaker, she has appeared at TEDxFiDiWomen, the Wharton School of Business, the Young Presidents’ Organization, Hillcrest Hospital, and Cleveland Clinic, among others. In the media, she has been a frequent guest on NBC-TV’s Today show and Late Night with Conan O’Brien, as well as 20/20, The Ricki Lake Show, The Rachael Ray Show, Lifetime Live, The Other Half, and more. Her programs have been profiled in esteemed publications including The New York Times, Elle, and New York magazine. Thomashauer’s unique perspective has also been quoted in Glamour, Newsweek, Marie Claire, Allure, Self, InStyle, and The Washington Post. She lives and works in New York City.
