New Book, 'Woman's Way Home,' Debunks Liability Myths Among Female Leaders

SPOKANE, WA--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2013) - Leela Francis' new book, "Woman's Way Home," (, posits reasons for why much of society is fundamentally mistaken when it comes to a woman's "liabilities."

"Many of us -- men and women alike -- are stuck in the past when it comes to defining 'strength' and 'weakness,'" says Francis, whose book includes techniques and tools from her Vividly Woman Embodied Leader Tools and Training.

"The sensuality, emotionality and intuition that are so often snubbed as 'weaknesses' are actually a source of power."

By resourcing those qualities, rather than denying or hiding them, and by treating her body like a temple instead of a machine, Francis teaches, "a woman can have the life of her dreams."

When women feel vulnerable, she says, they're actually tapping into their own truth: their fears, shame, guilt. That can be uncomfortable, so they hide those feelings.

"The more we hide that, the more we cause ourselves to suffer -- to tell ourselves we're not good enough," she says. "Instead we need to look for where those responses are coming from. What societal expectations have taught us to feel fear or guilt in this situation?

"By accessing those feelings, embracing our sensuality and trusting our intuition, we begin to tap our power."

In this engaging, empowering and honest book, Francis shares the forests, peaks and valleys of her own wild and wonderful way home. The book acts as a midwife for a reader's rebirth, releasing the chains of self-judgment and allowing for an authentic dialogue with one's body.

"'Woman's Way Home' is a breath of fresh air," writes Amazon reviewer Sunni Madrid. "The principles written within the pages of the book guided me back to me ... I now embody and embrace who I am!!!"
