Sunday, March 4, 2012. I was thinking today about the astonishing contribution made by courageous women in the last century. Six women come to mind because they were part of my learning and my growth. Each of them was courageous, smart, and profoundly connected to all of Life on all levels. I want to describe them to you. And, specifically, I want to tell you about they have impacted my personal life story. These six women are Jane Roberts, Helen Schucman, Esther Hicks, Jean Houston, Jean Bolen, and Byron Katie. The first three, Jane Roberts, Helen Schucman, and Esther Hicks, all channeled messages from the “other side.” Dr. Jean Houston and Dr. Jean Bolen have been my teachers through their writings and their work. Then along came Byron Katie with her profound enlightenment experience and the gift of what she calls, The Work. All six of these women have touched something in my mind, heart, and being that made a difference in my own expanding consciousness. I was drawn to learn what each of them had to offer.
