An inspirational guide for mothers, grandmothers, stepmothers, aunts, or any woman wishing to nurture a girl through her coming of age (while empowering herself!)
This book provides practical guidelines for mentoring a girl into womanhood. It offers creative ceremonies and activities designed to honor a girl s transition and call her to new levels of maturity. At the same time, it presents the adult woman/mentor with powerful tools for enhancing her inner and outer life. The book is motivated by the belief that for a girl to enter womanhood in a meaningful way, it is essential that her mother and other special women in her life cultivate a new way of relating that will gradually help her to become their peer.

A gem of a book! This is the first book I've seen that provides support, direction, and encouragement explicitly for mothers and other women attempting to foster confidence and joy in their girls during the momentous transition from girlhood to womanhood. The simple rituals and sensible suggestions offered in this book are touching and heartfelt.

Expressive, beautifully written, guided by the wisdom of the elders. Such a resource on deepening connections between mothers and daughters, women and girls, is greatly needed.
