Warrior Goddess Training: Become the Woman You Are Meant To Be
By Heatherash Amara
Available through Amazon in paperback, hardback, and Kindle editions. You can find it at other online and offline book sellers, as well.
Summary of Warrior Goddess Training
If the title didn’t give you a clue, here it is in plain writing: This book is filled with woo woo spiritual speak. Heatherash Amara has developed, based on her training on Toltec wisdom with Don Miguel Ruiz, an Earth-based, spiritually driven, path to Owning Your Awesome as a woman.
What I liked about Warrior Goddess Training
Amara is a good, grounded writer. Her prose is straightforward and easy to understand. She includes plenty of stories from her own life that illustrate her points well. Woo woo spiritual speak aside, many of the exercises she recommends are valid ways to understand and love yourself more deeply.
What I didn’t like about Warrior Goddess Training
The language was a bit too far on the woo woo side for my comfort. I believe a lot of what she said could have been stated in more universal or grounded terms. Also, her morals don’t match my own. No judgement, just some of the suggestions she made would be completely inauthentic to me if I were to follow them. This may or many not be the case for you.
What I’d Love to See in the Second Edition
Since this book is like a training, I’d love to see at the beginning of each lesson a summary of what you will learn. I believe that stating this information at the beginning and the end, in different but equal summaries, will help readers process what they are learning more deeply. I also think that downloadable versions of her tables and questions would be helpful.
This book is not for everywoman. If you are uncomfortable with Earth-based spirituality, which is much more open to sexual energy than other forms of spirituality, you may be turned off. Then again, maybe exposing yourself to a different perspective will open you up to new ways of seeing yourself. Just read this book with an open mind and don’t do anything it suggests that goes against your core beliefs.
NOTE: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. If you’ve read past book reviews, you’ll know that I don’t pull my punches when I believe they are warranted. I also try to provide balanced information so you can make your own decision to read or not read the book, even if you disagree with my opinion.
