A Radical Awakening: Turn Pain Into Power, Embrace Your Truth, Live Free
May 17, 2021
The New York Times bestselling author and renowned clinical psychologist teaches women how to transcend their fears and illusions, break free from societal expectations, and rediscover the person they were always meant to be: fully present, conscious, and fulfilled.
Dr. Shefali was 44 years old when she had an epiphany: the only person stopping her from harnessing her inner power was herself.
Coming to a critical juncture in her own life, she had no choice but to walk away from the past. Dr. Shefali let go of her unhappiness, her ego, and discovered a profound freedom and purpose. Her moment of radical awakening led to the birth of a new self. What she experienced in her own journey, Dr. Shefali realized was readily available to all women.
“I truly believe that there comes a critical moment in a woman’s life – typically around mid-life—where she faces a pivotal choice. I certainly came to that moment in my own life: either I continued being inauthentic to myself and stayed encaged in fear OR I stepped into a new dimension where I was fully, consciously, my true self.”
— Dr. Shefali
A Radical Awakening [HarperOne; May 18, 2021] not only lays out a path to heal a woman’s own emotional disconnect—and those of women collectively—it prepares her to discover inner truth, and her own powers. Catalyzed by this profound transformation, healing occurs on a personal level, extending to others, and expanding outwardly to the whole planet.
Dr. Shefali writes: “This book is about your awakening. It is an ode and an homage to your authentic self, the self that is waiting to be birthed anew. We all yearn to be free. Yet we feel encaged in our daily lives, consumed by fear and unworthiness. What these pages promise you is a path out of the cage toward a new vision of yourself.”
Leading women on a journey to move from fear to empowerment, Dr. Shefali guides the reader through the process of uncovering the purpose that already existed within, harnessing the power of authenticity in every area of life. Told from a psychological and practical perspective—by deconstructing the archetypes that still exist in society today—women will find themselves empowered to live authentically, and by example, elevating other women along the way.
The result is an eloquent, inspiring, practical, and accessible tool containing real-life examples and personal stories from Dr. Shefali’s experience as a woman and clinical psychologist. A Radical Awakening illuminates a liberating, culture-shifting, and mind-bending path that unlocks our extraordinary capacity to transform fear into power, unworthiness into wholeness, and suffering into freedom.
Inspiring, transformational, and profound, A Radical Awakening teaches women how to transcend their fears and illusions, break free from societal expectations, and rediscover the person they were always meant to be: fully present, conscious, fulfilled, and free.
