SEVERAL Newcastle women have unveiled their inspirational life stories in a book that will be published on January 29.
Wild Woman Rising tells the inspiring stories of 28 brave women across the globe who are listening to the whispers of their heart and carving their own path in life, according to Jennylee Taylor, one of the authors who tells her story in the book.
Taylor is a Newcastle-based breathworks practitioner and part of the team at Newcastle Health Collective, based in Cooks Hill.
Wild Woman Rising tells the inspiring stories of brave women across the globe who are listening to the whispers of their heart and carving their own path in life.
The women writers in Wild Woman Rising are described as people "who have alchemised challenging life events and created a life and business from their soul work."
"They are staring tradition in the eye and actively challenging the status quo, whilst birthing a whole new way of living and doing business," a press release for the book states.
All proceeds from the sales of Wild Woman Rising goes to supporting the international charity GirlRising, which uses the power of storytelling to change the way the world values girls and their education.
The book is being published by Ashwin Publishing.
Founded by Tarsh Ashwin in 2019, Ashwin Publishing provides "a powerful platform for courageous leaders and women in business to share their message and story with the world through internationally-published multi-author and solo books," according to a press release for the Wild Women Rising launch.
"With a background in business strategy, Tarsh's passion is to guide women to grow their impact-driven business and step into empowered and profitable leadership," it states.
According to press material, "In a time when we are collectively being asked to rethink the way we do life and move from traditional models, these women are examples of courage, tenacity, resilience and compassion who have moved through life and are successful in their chosen field."
Ashwin says she believes in the power of storytelling to grow businesses that are committed to transformational global change.
Ashwin lives in Newcastle with her partner, Owen, and two sons, Charlie and Harry.
Sixteen of the 28 authors work in NSW. The following contributing authors all run successful coaching, healing and therapeutic businesses in Newcastle, the Central Coast and Sydney: Camila Sunshine, Deborah Quirke, Donna Burrows, Gabrielle Bailey, Jennylee Taylor, Jess Karnaghan, Jules Stone-McLeod, Jo Martin, Kirsty McCann, Lucy Whyte, Maaya Eagle, Mary Girishaa, Melinda Kalac, Tara-Lee Bagnall, Tarryn Reeves and Tarsh Ashwin.
By April, the Wild Woman Rising Online Summit will coincide with the hard copy release.
