Publisher's Summary

Through one incredible woman's journey from a child bride in a small Zimbabwe village to one of the world's most recognizable voices in women's empowerment and education, this manifesto inspires women to pursue their sacred dreams through nine essential lessons brought forth from ancient African wisdom.

Before Tererai Trent landed on Oprah's stage as her "favorite guest of all time", she was a woman with a forgotten dream. As a young girl in a cattle-herding village in Zimbabwe, she dreamed of receiving an education but instead was married young and by 18, without a high school graduation, she was already a mother of three. Tererai encountered a visiting American woman who assured her that anything was possible, reawakening her sacred dream. Tererai planted her dreams deep in the earth and prayed they would grow. They did, and now not only has she earned her PhD, but she has also built schools for girls in Zimbabwe, with funding from Oprah. The Awakened Woman: Remembering & Reigniting Our Sacred Dreams is her accessible, intimate, and evocative guide that teaches nine essential lessons to encourage all women to reexamine their dreams and uncover the power hidden within them - power that can re-create our world for the better.

Tererai points out that there is a massive, untapped global resource in women who have, for one reason or another, set aside their wisdom, their skills, and their dreams in order to take care of the personal business of their lives. Not only is this a type of invisible suffering experienced by countless women, this rich resource is a secret weapon for improving our world. Women have the capacity to inspire, to create, to transform - and Tererai's call to action will awaken hearts, give permission to recapture dreams, and provide the tools to forge a brighter path for all. This is the movement of Sacred Sisters.

Women Support Eachother’s Success

Such an inspiring story and guidebook to develop our own dreams and life purpose. My favorite quote from this is “You can infinitely be reborn.” Tererai goes on to say that we are never too old or too poor or too downtrodden to realize our life’s purpose. Her story is inspiring and hopeful especially in these challenging times.

Extremely inspiring

I have never heard of this author. I was reading a magazine and her book was on the recommended list of just read books. Dr. Tererai Trent is such an inspiration and has accomplished so much. She went from being a cattle herder in Zimbabwe to a doctor. It begs the question, what are you doing with your life?

The Power and Joy Of Femininity

Dr Tererai Trent has helped me to value who I am and what I bring to the world.
It is easy to hide our value, I know this because this has been me.
I have now listened to her book twice and I now am purchasing the hard copy.
If you’re looking for support, confidence and to see the power of femininity unleashed, I highly recommend this book.
