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.

Wild Feminine is a great book for understanding the energy and potential for health and happiness carried in a woman's pelvic bowl. More practically, it's great for learning about and healing imbalances and other problems in the pelvic area.
I definitely skimmed a lot of it, and translated a lot into my own language as a Catholic (inviting spirits in, no thanks. Inviting God to walk with me on my path to healing, yes). I also found it very repetitive, and probably a lot longer than it needed to
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."

"Suddenly the spirit of my daughter filled the room. I felt her tiny body leave mine, and I reached down to discover her placenta's perfect fit in the palm of my hand. I wrapped her hint of a body on cloth... I wandered through the day with her small b

A hands-on book for women about holistic pelvic care, taking care of your root.

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
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
really enjoyed it and gave me many ideas and much hope
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.
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.
Tami Lynn Kent truly understands the beauty and flow of feminine energy. I felt like finally someone was speaking my language. What a blessing to women.
I liked the themes and ideas, but the book felt a bit repetitive. That said, her passion for her work is fabulous and is a wonderful gift to women.

“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
