This is a 2.5 star book, which I'm generously giving three stars. I found the author's language too wooey and vague, irritating me to no end by the conclusion of the book. There is a lot of fluff language to describe energy and body wisdom, which Dr. Christine Northrup does much more elegantly in her book "Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom." While the subject matter is different, Northrup's book is a better bet for overall women's health and body concerns. In Wild Feminine, attention is paid to pel ...more

i want to give this book 5 stars because i think that i am engaging in some life-changing events because of reading this book. however, as a BOOK it was not exceptional. the author did a lot of repeating and there were more case studies than substance to the actual narrative. i think the book could be cut in half, but then maybe it would be more of a pamphlet. i wish there had been some narratives from historical matriarchal traditions or ceremonies.

Tami is a pelvic floor therapist. I appreciated the detailed instructions she gives in the book on how to utilize this technique on yourself to release tension in your pelvic floor. She includes lots of other exercises in the book including visualizations and meditations to help reconnect to your root, the center of feminine and natural creative energy. She shares many stories of women she's worked on and how powerful it is to reconnect to this sacred place. Lots of takeaways from this one, thou ...more

I enjoyed it very much. While at first I really didn't understand much of what she was talking about, having no background with "energy work" or things of that nature, there was a point about mid way through when it started to all click. Once it started clicking, everything she said started finding its way right into my heart. I can easily say I've never read a book like this before-specific instructions for vaginal massage, and talking about energy work of the reproductive organs, are you kiddi ...more

"I am drumming. Twenty women form a circle on the floor. They lie with heads together and legs extended... I ask the women to feel the drum's vibration in the root of their bodies. They follow the drumbeat to their womb, where life itself begins."

Abridged version: massage your vagina so you can let go of tension, ambition, and power. Go back to keeping hearth and home, embrace the color pink, and be receptive in all aspects of your life. Walk barefoot, sing, paint and do other "feminine" things. Otherwise you are holding our whole sex back from spiritual development. Also, ask your vagina when facing choices because you aren't capable of using your brain to make a decision.

I would have expected to read something like this from an extrem

This book was a stretch at times. Somatic memory is something relatively new to me and understanding its implications in my body and women society on a whole. She has many exercises and contemplative questions that create a very well rounded book that is both informative and interactive.

I couldn't finish this book. I consider myself pretty open minded, but this was just too much. What about women who have been sexually assaulted and suffer from chronic pelvic pain? We should just embrace it? What got me to finally stop was her implication that women who don't have children are dealing with internal conflict about their wild feminine nature. What about those of us who can't have kids or choose not to? Are we less of a woman? According to Kent, we are and have deep rooted conflic ...more

I tried reading this book twice, I really did. It has great exercises in it and great insights about womyn and creativity but I just couldn't push past the middle point.
And then one day on a beach in India a cow picked it up when I was getting a drink and ate 20 pages out of it, just at the part that I was reading. So that was a sign.
I put it down.
It's not that I didn't like it, it's just that I found it hard to get through and well the Bovine God had it's say!

I have tried numerous times to read this book through to the end, and I just can't seem to do it. I love so much about the topic (vaginal massage, connecting to the energy of the pelvic bowl, releasing stagnant emotional energy, etc.), but after a few paragraphs it starts to feel dry and blah and I put it down...again. I think I'll just have to love the idea of this book and let myself off the hook from actually finishing it!
Stephanie
Absolutely loved and gained so much from this book. If I read it a couple years ago, however, I probably would not have understood it or needed it the way I do now. This was definitely the right time for me and this book. I got it from the library, but I am definitely going to buy it so that I can use the rituals and exercises at Women's Circles and for myself

I'm actually always "currently reading" this one. I particularly love the exercises and meditations in the first half of the book. TLK is brilliant. My only wish is for a further exploration into daily applications.

Good one. However, sometimes I feel like it goes around the same idea over and over and you get a little tired.

I am pretty liberal and open minded, but this was "out there" even for me. It might have some good tidbits for you (I did enjoy one of the writing exercises) but overall, this was a "fail" for me.

I loved this book and it opened my eyes to a lot of personal lacking in the "feminine" arena of my life. Now I have tools to reconnect with that part of myself. This book is best read in small bits for digestibility, and ease of doing the exercises (there are many). It's a bit woo-woo for those that aren't into that, but I am and loved it. Come join me in reconnecting with your wild feminine!

“The idea of synchronizing her outer movements with the natural rhythms of her body inspired her,” 1 likes
“While each of these may be convenient at the time (and easier choices, culturally, than choosing menstrual retreat, natural birth, breastfeeding, mother-baby dependency, and unmedicated menopause), there is a downside. Each time we deny our female functions, each time we deviate from our bodies’ natural path, we move farther away from our feminine roots. This can create distress within our bodies and can set the scene for further problems, physically and emotionally, for ourselves and our families.” 0 likes
